The name garnet, derived from the Latin word 'granum' meaning 'grain', refers to the rounded shape of the garnet crystal resembling the seeds of the pomegranate. In the Middle Ages, garnet was also called 'Karfunkel' in German, meaning 'the glowing red of the sparks of fire'. In modern times, garnets are known by many names, the most important of which is the fiery red pyrope (very popular in the 18th and 19th centuries) with fierce and often slightly bronze shades of red. Since garnets have been widely used for thousands of years, it is written that Noah used a lantern constructed from garnets to safely steer his Ark through the darkness of the night. Garnets are found in jewelry from ancient Egyptian, Greek and Roman eras, travelers wearing garnets for protection due to the fact that they were considered to be talismans and protective stones. Garnets continue to be appealing due to their natural and not manipulated beauty, their wide variety of colors, and their magnificent brilliance. For those who adhere to the pleasant and meaningful tradition of wearing birthstones, garnet is the birthstone for the month of January.
