Red Garnets have a long history, but today, Garnets can be found in greens, oranges, pinkish oranges, deeply saturated purplish reds, and even blues. Some of the red-to-purple color range are not translucent and display a reflective trait when cut and polished, known as Star Garnets.
Thousands of years ago, Red Garnet necklaces adorned the necks of Egypt’s pharaohs, and were entombed with their mummified corpses as prized possessions for the afterlife. In ancient Rome, signet rings with carved garnets were used to stamp the wax that secured important documents.
Garnet is the birthstone for January and the gem for the 2nd wedding anniversary. Star Garnets are the state gem of Idaho!
