Garnet Faceted Marquise - 8 X 4 mm Genuine Natural Faceted Gemstone - January Birthstone decide what this gemstone will become.

Almandine is the hardest form of Garnet, and a pure deep red is its most valuable color.

Garnet is the birthstone for January
One of the Planetary stones for Scorpio
And, is the Zodiac stone for Aquarius
Said to cure melancholy, and warm the heart.

"Garnets have been known to Man for thousands of years. Noah, it is said, used a garnet lantern to help him steer his ark through the dark night. Garnets are also found in jewellery from early Egyptian, Greek and Roman times. Many an early explorer and traveller liked to carry a garnet with him, for the garnet was popular as a talisman and protective stone, as it was believed to light up the night and protect its bearer from evil and disaster. Today, science has taught us that the garnet's proverbial luminosity comes from its high refractive index."
