January’s Birthstone is Garnet.

The birthstone for January is the

garnet. This rare gem comes in a

variety of different colors.

However, the most popular and

lucrative garnets are a deep shade

of red.

The word garnet is derived from

the Middle English word, ‘gernet,’

which means dark red. This also

shares its origin with the seed-filled

fruit the pomegranate.
