Garnets for the Holidays

Red is a favorite holiday color right now, so if you're looking for rich reds to go with your holiday wardrobe, consider garnet.

Most garnet jewelry is affordable, especially when compared to other red stones like rubies, and look great with fall clothing. This gemstone can range in color from the more orange-ie color to deep dark burgundy.

Here's a little garnet folklore from Gemstone.org:

Garnets have been known to Man for thousands of years. Noah, it is said, used a garnet lantern to help him steer his ark through the dark night. Garnets are also found in jewellery from early Egyptian, Greek and Roman times. Many an early explorer and traveller liked to carry a garnet with him, for the garnet was popular as a talisman and protective stone, as it was believed to light up the night and protect its bearer from evil and disaster. Today, science has taught us that the garnet's proverbial luminosity comes from its high refractive index.
