More Info On January Birthstones

Warrior Queen: YOUR fire-red Pyrope Garnet birthstone is probably one of the most beautiful and remarkable birthstones you’ll ever see and it’s also thought to be one of the oldest stones used for spiritual protection throughout history!

It derives its name from the Latin word ‘granatum’ — meaning seed, as red Garnet beads perfectly replicate Pomegranate seeds dating back to the story of Persephone and Hades in Greek Mythology.

Legend has it: Hades fell madly in love with Persephone, so much so he tricked her into staying with him for eternity in the underworld by having her eat a single Pomegranate seed. Persephone, being unhappy with her circumstances at first, grew to love Hades deeply and for that reason your beautiful birthstone is associated with love, passion and known as the universal stone of commitment.

Garnet gems can also be traced all the way back to 3500 BC, where Egyptian Pharaohs wore necklaces adorned with these fiery stones. In later years of the Roman Empire, Garnets were prized as an invaluable jewel possessing strong powers and Garnets were even worn by Aztecs going into battle!

Mermazing!!!

Garnets are strongly attached to both the Base and Crown Chakras, and said to provide additional protection, health, emotional comfort and success.

Dear January Mermaid: YOUR birthstone — the Rose Quartz (also known as Hyaline Quartz) — with its pink-ish hues is absolutely MAGICAL!

It’s the ultimate stone of love and self-love, as its energy encourages love FOR others, love FROM others and love FOR YOURSELF, along with self-confidence, harmony and peace.

Its name is derived both from its soft pastel pink colour that captures the heart with its warm, feminine glow; as well as from the Greek word ‘hyalos’ meaning glass. Its lightness is reminiscent of a new dawn — especially as it perfectly replicates the rose-coloured shades that light up the morning sky.

The oldest Rose Quartz beads ever found date back to Ancient Mesopotamia around 7000 BC, and this stunning stone is believed to have been crafted into jewellery by the Syrians as far back as 800 BC!!!

This stone is also said to be ripe with healing properties, and thought to support the heart in healing from trauma and/or disease, aid in releasing past wounds and to teach us to trust and have hope again.

Rose Quartz is strongly attached to both the Heart and Throat Chakras, and by having this captivating crystal in your space or wearing it on you/your aura is thought to calm your own energy, enhance self-love and bring healing communication and a deeper connection with family, partners and friends.

Warrior Queen, the magic doesn’t stop there. Rose Quartz has even been associated with the tale of Adonis and Aphrodite in Greek mythology. Your birthstone flaunts a lot of love and a whole lot of history!!!
