Garnet is believed to have derived from the Latin granatum, meaning pomegranate and referring to its deep red coloured seeds. Garnet has been used in jewellery since ancient times and was thought to have great curative powers, protecting the wearer from harm. It is believed that Garnet energises the emotions, promoting confidence and strength of character.
Garnet is also the birthstone for January, symbolising eternity and truth.
