Garnet

Spessartite and Rhodolite Garnet

Did you know that garnet comes in every color of the rainbow except for blue*? Most are different shades of red, but they also come in a variety of oranges, grape, and the rarest of all, green. There is even a garnet that changes color in different types of light!

Tsavorite and Demantoid Garnet

Certain varieties of garnet have more brilliance than a diamond. They look like they are glowing. Legend has it that Noah had a lantern carved out of a garnet crystal on his ark to light the way for him and the animals through the darkness. Traditional folklore also associates garnets with good health.

I’d be happy to help any of you January babies design a special piece of jewelry, so don’t hesitate to contact me with any ideas. It doesn’t have to be your birthstone either; you can just like them a lot like me, and it is good luck to wear one. If you want more information about this wonderful gemstone, send me an email or message. If you want to learn more on your own, check out:

*Some extremely rare blue color-change garnets were discovered in the 1990’s.
