Garnet is January gemstone


Known, at least, since classical antiquity,  legends say that Noah used a garnet lantern to help him steer his ark through the darkness of the night. Garnets were used in jewellery since early Egyptian, Greek and Roman times. 
Many explorers and travellers liked to carry a garnet, as it was very popular as a talisman and protective stone, and garnet quality of night guiding light meant it could protect its bearer from evil and disaster.
