January’s Birthstone… The Garnet

Garnet Jewelry in 14K Gold
Garnet is January’s Birthstone

The holidays are over and a new year is upon us. This month OROLATINA® is pleased to feature January’s Birthstone, the Garnet.

The Garnet is a special type of Gemstone. It is a composite Gemstone; therefore it consists of different minerals (and the quantity of each mineral varies from stone to stone) that form chemical bonds together. There are more than 30 varieties of Garnet, some of these considered in theory, with the major varieties being Pyrope, Almandine, Spessartine, Andradite, Grossular, and Uvarovite (being quite rare).

The Garnet stone ranges on the Moh’s Scale of Hardness from 6.5 to 7.5 depending on the amount of the mineral Almandine in each specific stone. Learn more about Garnet Gemstones in our education section.

OROLATINA® offers a fine selection of Garnet Jewelry in fine 14 Karat Gold for all tastes and budgets. Shipping is Free and all of our 14K Gold Garnet Jewelry is backed by a 30 Day Money Back Guarantee!
