More info: The name Garnet comes from the Latin "granatum" which is translated into "pomegranate," referring to Garnet’s likeness to the pomegranate fruit. In the Bible, Noah’s Ark was led through the darkness by a glowing Red Garnet. In the USA, Garnet is the birthstone for January, the state mineral of Connecticut, and the state gemstone for New York. Garnet is used industrially to cut steel, to filter water, as an abrasive, and in carpentry to finish wood. Garnets have been used in jewelry and ornaments in many ancient civilizations, including the Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans, Maya, Aztec, and later into Europe.
