My personal favorite stone (tied with aquamarine) is GARNET!
While my feelings for garnet are superficial (it's beautiful!), garnet is known to harness creative energy. Since January in the Northeast is so depressing I'll need to wear a ton of it. It is also believed to be a powerful energizing and regenerative stone that balances, strengthens and protects.
So, for everyone who needs a pick me up during this dark month, here's some garnet for you!
