January babies can be a dark bunch, at least when talking about January's birthstone hue. The garnet is the gem of the month and is most known for its deep red stone. Garnet got its name from the Roman word “granatus” meaning “seed,” since the gems were thought to resemble pomegranate seeds.
It’s not uncommon to get the blues this time of year. The lack of sunlight and cold temperatures do it for many.
But, there's many things to be happy about December, especially if you’re a December baby! The December's birthstones are all about the blues with a gorgeous collection of gems from turquoise to zircon and tanzanite.
