The Garnet gemstones are a lovely deep red colour.
The name “garnet” comes from the Latin word “Garanatus,” meaning “seedlike,” in reference to a pomegranate.
This reference makes sense as small garnets look like the bright red seeds you find inside in a pomegranate.
Garnet is the traditional birthstone for January
