The Power of Gemstones - January birthstone is Garnet
The Garnet's emotional, physical and mental healing is associated with purification, regeneration and warmth. As a healer and protector from toxins, a garnet can be used as a remedy in the body's fight against food poisoning and blood toxicity.
With respect to the Chakras, garnet is associated with the (2nd) Centre and the Base/Root/Spine (1st) Centre. Garnet not only clears the blockage of negative energy from these areas, it also is used in the healing and enhancing of the activities that occur within and via the centre.
