Modern Birthstone for January is Garnet - Natural Garnet Birthstones
A January baby, whose fortuitous arrival helps to ring in the New Year, is marked with a spirit of renewal and rejuvenation. As such, it's fitting that the January Calendar birthstone is the Garnet, a stone imbued with powers of revitalization, healing and creativity. The gorgeous Mozambique Garnet, glowing deep red with hints of range and brown, is a great choice for an affordable Garnet birthstone talisman. Linguistically Garnet is related to the word pomegranate; since the red Garnet gems resemble pomegranate seeds, a fitting comparison as pomegranates, like garnets, symbolize freshness, health and rejuvenation. Garnet gemstones also appear in the Tsavorite variety, boasting a refreshing surprise of sparkling verdant color ranging from a light spring green to a deep forest green. Tsavorite Garnets, and Garnet Jewelry are perfect for displaying your January birthstone, perhaps as a fashion ring or dangly earrings, with a less traditional, more modern twist.

Birthstone Poem by Oliver Farrington
"By her who in January was born
No gem save garnets shall be worn
They will ensure her constancy
True friendship and fidelity."
