This versatile gem comes in myriad colors, and some even believe it boosts energy and willpower
The Red Bull of gemstones? Possibly among those who believe that garnet is said to get your blood pumping—and not just because it’s often found in energizing red shades. According to GIA, “Garnets are a set of closely related minerals forming a group, with gemstones in almost every color.” From green (think tsavorite) to orange to the rouge we all know, garnets are a pretty, fairly durable (6.5–7.5 on the Mohs scale) jewel earmarked as the birthstone of January and the gem of second wedding anniversaries. What’s more, the red varieties are often relatively affordable, making ownership within reach for many. Here are six new styles to consider stocking.
