Things You Surely Didn’t Know about Garnets Before
The New Year is upon us and it’s about time for the January born folks to prepare for the back-to-back bashes because New Year’s and birthdays both call for some serious celebration. For those who are born on the first month of the year, garnet is your gemstone. Warm, radiant and fantastic, nothing defines the key qualities of a January born person better than its birthstone.
While most people are familiar with garnet eternity rings and garnet engagement rings and the fact that it is the gemstone of January, there are some facts about this gemstone that are still unexplored by most. For instance, did you know that garnet stands for virtual qualities such as loyalty, enduring affections and a light heart? Yes, that is only the beginning of the many fantastic facts that surround this superb and lively stone.
A bust for the most dominant myth of all, garnets are not always red. Yes, natural garnets occur in many colors aside from red, such as green and black. There is even a colorless variety that mimics achromatic diamonds pretty closely, although it does not match up to the fire and scintillation of the latter.
The third thing you probably didn’t know about these interesting looking stones is that they are not mined underground. Yes, they do not occur in the womb of the earth like other gemstones. They strewn the banks of forest streams and brooks with pebbles after the rocks they are ensconced inside weather off.

Christmas- For You and Me
With Christmas only a day away, cities and suburbs across United Kingdom have dressed and lit up for the biggest festival of the year. Holiday lights, holly wreaths, Christmas trees, mistletoes, nativity scenes are everywhere you look. While towns and cities take up a festive verve, people join in the merrymaking getting busy with the Christmas rituals of giftwrapping, Christmas trees decorating, setting out cookies and milk for the elusive Santa and cooking delectable dishes for friends and family.
If you are one of the millions of people who wait for this time of the year with great anticipation, then you must be all caught up in the Christmas fever.
While you pick out gifts like engagement rings and earrings for your loved ones, whip and brew scrumptious refreshments for the guests and prep the house for your family and friends, take a moment to be forgiving and loving to those who are not directly related to you.
Keep it down for your neighbors, donate to charities for the have-nots, and make it up with those you have had tiffs and trifles with earlier in the year.
On the whole, the very spirit of Christmas is to welcome love and happiness into your heart and your life. So, make the most of it by being nice to others, smooth out old differences and put a smile in the face of those you love and care for, because nothing brings more happiness and contentment than to see a happy face knowing that you may have a little something to do in it.
