Now over my years of collecting rocks, I’ve seen the term birth stones many times but have never really known much about them. At least until I came across this article entitled “The Astonishing Origin of Garnets in Rhyolite” by Dana Hunter at Scientific American.

So for the next twelve months, I’m going to start learning about birth stones. I will say this article alone has been incredibly educational. Unfortunately my birth month is November, so I’ve got quite awhile until then.

Sincerely –
