January birthstone – Garnet

I am back at my keyboard after a refreshing break over the festive season and am ready & rearing to go for 2010. I hope you all had  great Christmas and New Year celebrations!

Lots of ideas for this year and this post is one of my new themes.

I thought each month I would look at the birthstone and talk about it a little, look for goodies made with it or using the colour – a good way for me to learn more about gemstones and their meanings.

Garnets are typically recognised as beinga deep, dark brownish – red colour.  They can also be yellow, red, purple, pink, orange, multi colour, green & more. Glass beads that are a similar colour are also called “garnet”

Here is a link to some “garnet” goodies from one of my online groups – Etsy DUST (Down Under Street Team)
