Garnet is the modern January birthstone and the gem designated for the 2nd and 6th wedding anniversary. There are no known enhancements for garnet, it occurs in every color of the spectrum, except blue.
The name Garnet appears to originate with the Latin granatum malum which means pomegranate. Pomegranate is the name of the bush which produces a red fruit with seeds. Jewelry made with garnet has been found as early as the Bronze Age (3000 BC) in burial sites. It is thought that early communities valued garnet and believed that it offered protections in the afterlife.
