BIRTHSTONE: January BACK TO ALL GEMS
garnet
overview
Garnets are a grouping of gemstones that share a common mineralogical base composition with the only difference being their color. Their colors can range from the most common red to greens, blues, and purples. The color difference is determined by the conditions and what other minerals are present at the time of their formation. They are cut much like diamonds but more free in their shape and facet patterns. This is due to their index of refraction being less than a diamond so light doesn't bounce around them in the same way.
