As birthstones go, garnet might be the most misunderstood. Traditionally associated with a deep red colour, its name is thought to derive from the Latin garanatus, meaning seed-like, given its resemblance to a pomegranate seed. However, the January birthstone can actually come in hues ranging from emerald green, known as tsavorite, to deep brown, referred to as almandine.
Historically renowned for its ability to heal and protect—as well as to guide travellers on their journeys—it’s the perfect gift for the Capricorn or Aquarius in your life.
