The name "garnet" comes from the Latin word "Garanatus," meaning "seedlike," in reference to a pomegranate. This reference makes sense as small garnets look like the bright red seeds you find inside in a pomegranate. The next time you eat a pomegranate, you will notice the seeds' resemblance to garnet. Garnets symbolize loyalty and kindness. In a Grimm Fairy Tale, an old lady who rescues an injured bird is rewarded with a magical garnet that lights up the night. A garnet also lit the way for Noah's Ark. In legend, garnets protect travelers when they are far from home. Garnet is the birthstone for January and the stone that celebrates the 2nd anniversary of marriage.
