If you are a "January Baby” then your birthstone will be garnet. There’s quite a lot of meaning and it’s nice to know exactly what. Garnet is a spiritual stone of higher thinking and self-empowerment. It’s a stone of strength, safety, prosperity, and abundance! Also, something we tend to overlook in a fast paced society is simply, GRATITUDE....garnet encourages gratitude. So, if your birthstone is garnet, embrace it and wear a piece of jewelry to help celebrate and embrace your special stone.
