Happy Birthday, Garnet The Birthstone For January
Today is my Mom's 63rd birthday, so Happy Birthday. If you like here were born in January, than the Garnet is your birthstone. Garnet in its traditional color, is a brick red color. But did you know that Garnet actually comes in every color, except blue. It is a very durable gemstone, and certain Garnets are very expensive, and rare. Probably the most expensive would be the Demantoid Garnet, which is said to have more fire than a diamond. Garnets are natural in their color, and are not known to be treated. What comes out of the Earth is what you get. Below is a cool video, talking about the Garnet birthstone.
