Garnet, January's birthstone, comes in like a fiery orange. This stone symbolizes trust and friendship. For this reason it is considered a unique and profound gift.
Legend has it that this stone will light up at night to protect you from nightmares. Garnets stones have been worn by travelers for centuries to protect themselves from accidents far from home. Less than a century ago you could recognize traveling merchants everywhere in Europe by the garnet stones they wore around their necks.
Some even called it the "jewel of faith." The garnet stone will reward the wearer's hard work and bring more luck in its path. In contrast, the stone would also reinforce the wearer's bad deeds and bring bad luck in its path.
