Rahu and Its Gemstone Hessonite (Gomed)

Like other planets of the solar system Rahu and Ketu are not the mass of light. Some scholars consider them as moon falls (chandrapat), some of them call them shadows of the earth. Some of them call the shadow of the North Pole as Rahu and of the South Pole as Ketu. In spite of all the above facts, Rahu and Ketu show their far-fetched influence over the man and all other beings. Therefore Rahu-Ketu's presence can never be ignored.

Although Rahu rules no sign of the zodiac, the zodiacal sign Virgo is its sign. Virgo is in fact assigned to Mercury. Zircon (Gomed) is related to Rahu. Its color is like the color of cow's urine. It has also the shade of honey tinged with blackish color. The gemstone that is transparent, of fine and good color, soft in touch and gives luster and radiance, is considered a stone of good quality and auspicious Hessonite. The gemstone having a light blackish hue, without radiance, rough, flat, full of layers and which looks like a yellow piece of glass, is a stone of average quality and is not considered auspicious. Wearing of an unblemished Hessonite ensures the native safety and protection from deadliest of enemies. Hessonite bestows health, wealth and prosperity to its owner. A blemished gemstone is harmful for the wearer. The red colored gomedha is injurious to health and one having a mixture of mica is destroyer of wealth.

Their value depends on their size, colour and transparency. With stones of very fine quality, these are, however, not the only main criteria, the origin of the gem also playing a major role. Neither is the colour itself necessarily a function of the geographical origin of a sapphire, which explains the great differences in price between the various qualities. The most valuable are genuine Kashmir stones. Burmese sapphires are valued almost as highly, and then come the sapphires from Ceylon. The possibility of the gemstone's having undergone some treatment or other is also a factor in determining the price, since gemstones which can be guaranteed untreated are becoming more and more sought-after in this age of gemstone cosmetics. And if the stone selected then also happens to be a genuine, certificated Kashmir or Burmese, the price will probably reflect the enthusiasm of the true gemstone lover.
