If you’re lucky enough to be born in January, your birthstone is garnet — a beautiful and typically dark red, sometimes reddish-orange or raspberry colored stone. You may even see some in yellow or green.
The Garnet is a deeply spiritual and beautiful stone. The meaning of the Garnet is a stone that means strength, safety, and self-empowerment but also focuses on love and gratitude as well.
Because of its rich red color, the stone has been associated with love, and is a great alternative gift to the more traditional porcelain for couples celebrating their 18th wedding anniversary.
