What’s so special about the month of January? We say, its birthstone : the “garnet” that symbolizes a light heart, enduring affection and loyalty.
The garnet is the birthstone for those who are born in January month. Birthstones are worn in personal jewelry like a ring or pendant. It is believed that when a piece of jewellery containing a birthstone gem is worn, it brings good luck and protection to the wearer. The garnet is also adorned to enhance sexuality and sensuality.
The Gregorian calendar has a poem matching with January birthstone. The poem reflects the properties with which the garnet is linked : truth, purity, friendship and faithfulness. Come on January babies, let’s sing poetry together –
“By her who in this month (January) is born
No gem save garnets should be worn;
They will ensure her constancy,
True friendship, and fidelity.”
The crystal “garnet” derives its name from the Latin word “granatum” that means “pomegranate”. We agree on this as the gemstone evidently shares the close resemblance with seeds of the fruit.
Most people think of the garnet as a red gemstone, but in fact, it exists in all kinds of colors, such as black, many shades of red and green, or even colorless.
Green garnet is the most highly prized but is very rare. Emerald green and colorless stones are highly valued, followed by pure red garnets.
The gemstone, garnet is believed to have several medicinal powers. It is said it protects its wearer against wounds, poisons and bad dreams and also cures depression. Red garnet relieves hemorrhages, fever and inflammatory diseases.
Since the garnet is a sign of trust & eternal friendship, you can always gift your best friend the garnet studded jewellery. 🙂
