January Birthstone – Spessartite

January Birthstone – The Spessartite

January’s birthstone is the garnet. While it is true that most garnets are a deep red, there is an exciting variant of the garnet called the Spessartite or Mandarin Garnet. So, what makes this garnet so special? First, of course, there is its color, that radiant orange, a color which speak of energy and joie de vivre, individuality and a readiness to take risks. A person who displays orange is not afraid of being noticed; showing this color indicates confidence.
