Birthstone for the month of January, Garnet is a group name for the silicate minerals almandine, pyrope, spessartine, grossular, andradite, mozambique and uvarovite, so the garnet is a far more diverse gem than its name suggests.
The name “garnet” comes from the Latin word “Garanatus,” meaning “seedlike”. The purple-red variety i.e. rhodolite, gets its name from the greek word “rhodon”, meaning rose-coloured.
Garnet’s virtues have been long believed to include passion, true friendship, fidelity, success, self-esteem, loyalty, devotion, energy, faith, consistency, and truth. Garnet is also an ancient symbol of friendship.
