The deep, glossy red color of garnet resembles the juicy seeds of a pomegranate, which is perhaps why its name is derived from the Latin word granatum, meaning pomegranate seed. In Greek mythology, a pomegranate was often given as a gift of passion and associated with eternal love. In ancient history, travelers wore garnet gemstones because they were believed to light up the night and provide protection from nightmares and accidents. In Victorian times, the gem was used in engagement rings and other women’s jewelry, to mark fidelity in love.
Garnet is the birthstone for January and is commonly believed to aid in the healing of broken bonds of love. Garnet jewelry is also known to aid in the treatment of melancholy and depression by acting as a heart and blood stimulant.
