Garnet

Garnet is a group of minerals, each grouping with it's own distinct chemical compositions and structures, some very similar and some unrelated, that may or may not be used as gemstones.

Garnet stones are known as compound silicates and they come in different varieties and the compounds differ in each set of stones.

As the gemstone for January, garnet signifies loyalty, devotion, and an abundance of energy.

Some garnet stones are rare, precious, and expensive, and others are somewhat common and inexpensive.

Those garnet gemstones that are used in jewelry display a beauty that is on par with the most brilliant and lustrous of gems and can match most others in cost per carat.

Garnet differ in color from clear to brown, black, orange, pink, red, purple, green, and yellow and they come in different hues of each color.

Garnet gemstones do not appear naturally in blue, but there is a clear specimen that takes on a blue tint in certain lighting conditions.

They are found in different shapes and sizes and can be adorned on gold and other precious metals, being durable, and very wearable.

Garnet are sometimes confused with other gemstones. A green variety called Tsavorite is sometimes confused with emeralds and a red garnet, called Pyrope, is sometimes confused with rubies.

Grossularite is a nontransparent variety of garnet that is often mistaken for jade and a transparent yellow variety is mistaken for topaz.
