Garnet is the birthstone of the first month, January. It is also the celebration stone for the second anniversary of marriage. A stone for beginnings appropriately finds its etymology in the Latin for “seed like.” Its initial comparison to a seed was for its similarity to a pomegranate before quickly becoming associated with the newness and emergence.
Garnet Beads and Gemstones convey a rich, deep, red luminescence, yet the term refers more to a family of stones than to one specific mineral. For this reason, Garnet beads are available in a wide range of colors displaying reds, browns, oranges, and even greens. The only color you won’t find a Garnet bead in is blue.
