Garnet is January's birthstone!
Did you know there are over 20 species of garnets? And only 5 of these species are commonly used as gemstones?
They're called species because while they are closely related, they are different enough. They all share relatively the same crystal structure, but have differing chemical compositions. Garnets come in every color of the rainbow, due to these large variations.
