Garnet is the birthstone for January and the gem for the second anniversary. It is believed to protect the wearer when journeying far from home, gives protection from wounds, stops bleeding, and thought to also ward off evil influences and spirits. Garnet is said to be the stone of romantic love and passion, enhancing sensuality. It is said to awaken creativity, positive energy, and self-confidence, and can bring success to one's career or business. Garnets have been thought to treat infectious diseases, blood poisoning, and heart and lung diseases.
Red garnets have a long history, but modern gem buyers can pick from a rich palette of garnet colors: greens, oranges, pinkish oranges, deeply saturated purplish reds, and even some blues. Red garnet is one of the most common and widespread of gems. But not all garnets are as abundant as the red ones.
