January - GARNET

January - GARNET

The colour of Garnet is dark red to purple and even orange in colour. The name Garnet stems from its resemblance to the seeds of the fleshy seeds of the pomegranate fruit. In other languages Garnet is called Granat, the same name as the fruit. Slices of garnet have been used in windows in churches and temples, and according to the legend, Noah has suspended a garnet in the ark in order to disperse light. Garnet is said to cure melancholy and to warm the heart. It also symbolises vitality in all its forms, such as strength and fertility. Garnet is believed to have the power to bring success in business, fame and popularity, providing protection and bringing spiritual awareness. Its powers include healing, increasing strength, and it is often worn to relieve skin inflammations. It also helps regulate the heart and blood flow and to aid in curing depression. It is the gem to be given on a 2nd and 6th Wedding Anniversary. Garnet is January's birthstone.
