Looking for a gemstone with some serious history? How about a garnet, whose name stems from the Latin word for grain due to its resemblance to pomegranate seeds. As the official birthstone for January, it's all about protection, friendship, trust, commitment, and love. Garnet is associated with the Greek goddess Persephone, who was held captive in the underworld after eating a few tempting pomegranate seeds. But fret not, because garnet is here to symbolize the safe return of cherished companions.
It was all the rage in Europe when Bohemian deposits were discovered in the 1500s, leading to a surge in popularity and production. Although it lost some steam after the 1800s, garnet is back in the spotlight. And don't think it's just about the classic red hue, the cool win-red to plum hues of Rhodolite (see below), brown/rust, color change, star, and even rare demantoid and mandarin garnets in green and orange are making a splash.
Discover the allure of Rhodolite, a gem that holds the same symbolism as its parent, the garnet - representing friendship, commitment, and passion. Unlike traditional garnets which are blood red, Rhodolite offers a range of hues such as lipstick red, rose red, and plum, evoking images of romance and luxury. Wondering if Rhodolite is a natural stone? Yes, and its stunning shades of raspberry, deep purple, and merlot are all gifts from nature.
Among garnets, Rhodolite stands out for its cool, luminous tones and comes from a diverse range of sources. In the world of gemstones, Rhodolite is renowned for its high refractive index, providing unparalleled sparkle, and its rich, romantic colors.
