Birthstones are precious or semiprecious gemstones that are associated with a particular birth month and help prevent the evil energy that comes in that month and protects you.


The month of January is shared by two zodiacs signs, Capricorn and Aquarius.


Capricorn is an earth sign, and those who are born such are said to be humble, sensitive and helpful. On the other hand, Aquarius is an air sign and those who are born under it are said to be logical, creative and intellectual.


Garnet is the birthstone of January. With a name derived from the Latin word “Granatus” meaning “seed like” which refers to a pomegranate, this gem has been very popular throughout history and across cultures, and is a symbol of love, friendship and trust.

  • Garnet is an outstanding gemstone to increase blood circulation throughout the body.
