Birthstone for January: Garnet

Posted by Bonne van der Ree on


Each month of the year is represented by a specific stone. People born in this month are said to have a special connection with this stone, their 'birthstone'.

For January this is garnet, a beautiful deep red stone that has been worn as a talisman throughout the ages for it's protective properties.

Garnet is said to be very effective at cleansing and re-energizing all chakras in the body.
It stimulates passion and creativity, brings order into chaos, harmonizes and regulates sexual energies, repels negativity and protects against depression.

But most of all, it's a sensual stone, full of fire and passion and it promotes strong and lasting relationships. It strengthens the commitment to someone or something.

Giving someone jewelry with garnet is like giving them strength, protection and a sign of your strong commitment, in friendship or love.
