Known for its ability to attract people and symbolic for protecting health, garnet, is the birthstone for January, as well as the gemstone for second anniversaries.
The most commonly known color of the garnet gemstone is dark red. But did you know you can also find garnet in green (tsavorite) and orange (spessartite)? Tsavorite and Spessartite garnets are less common because of the special conditions and rock chemistries needed for them to form.
