Capricorn has two birthstones, complementing each other, sometimes you might say they contradict each other – Onyx and Garnet.

Onyx is actually black Chalcedony and if you look at it under a strong light, you will see the banding, which is typical for Calcedony.

Garnet comes in many different varieties and can have different colours – what most of the people think of when you say Ganet is the red variety.
