Garnet is a semi-precious stone often used in jewelry, popular for it's deep red color.  It actually comes in nearly every color including red, orange, yellow, blue, green, purple, dark brown, etc with the deep red being the most commonly associated color. Another popular garnet family member is the tsavorite which is a beautiful emerald green color.My Single Garnet Mughal Necklace.The word "garnet" is derived from a latin term meaning "like a grain".  This semi precious stone was actually first used industrially in sandpaper and is still sometimes used in sandblasting.For those who believe in healing powers of stones, garnets aid in increasing self confidence, increasing courage and assisting in revealing past lives.  It is also thought to attract love.  Don't we all need a little of that?Garnet also happens to be the January birthstone for all you January babies.
