Garnet is mined right here in North River!   This gemstone was used as a talisman for protection both by warriors going into battle and those who wanted to ward off pestilence and plague. Some ancient healers and wise men even placed garnets in wounds and praised its healing powers.  The Egyptians even referred to it as the symbol of life.  Garnet is the January birthstone.
