Garnets are a type of mineral-based gemstone that are commonly red, but can come in a variety of colors, depending on the specific chemical makeup of the type. They can be found in brownish-red tones, red with a hint of violet, orange to reddish brown, and even green, yellow and brown. They generally have a deep, rich luster, and are associated with emotional healing and spirituality. This piece from 5th Element Yoga shows just one of the many ways garnets can be used to create beautiful and meaningful pieces. The garnet is the birthstone for January, and specifically for Aquarians.
