January Stone - GarnetGarnets signify everlasting trust and friendship, making it the perfect present to give to a friend. The word “garnet” derives from the world “granatum,” which means seed. It got its name because of the gemstone’s resemblance of a pomegranate seed. Even though garnets come in many colors, the red one is the popular one everyone thinks of when they hear the name of this gemstone. Some of the first references of garnets go back to Ancient Egypt, where this was a common stone used as inlays in jewelry.
