Understanding Garnet: A Symphony of Colors

Garnets come in a variety of colors, but the deep red varieties are the most commonly associated with this month. The name "garnet" is derived from the Latin word "granatum," meaning seed, as the gem is often reminiscent of the vibrant red seeds of a pomegranate. Beyond the classic red, garnets can also be found in shades of green, orange, yellow, and even rare blue hues.
