The Hessonite gemstone originates from calcium aluminum silicate. It is the derivative of Garnet. Hessonite Gemstone is usually reddish orange or yellow orange. The gemstone takes its chemical composition from grossularite. Limestone deposits found all over the world are the common sources of hessonite. Throughout history a number of rare and captivating gemstones that were discovered where generally confused with Hessonite and its associated Garnet gemstones namely, Pyrope, Uvarovite and Tsavorite.
The Greek word ‘esson’ meaning ‘inferior’ contributed to the present name Hessonite. It is because of the low density and hardness of the mineral. In the ancient times, Romans and Greeks use Hessonites in jewelry and intaglio (printing technique). Hessonite gemstones are found in India and Sri Lanka, besides Brazil and California.
In Vedic astrology, Hessonite (Gomed) is frequently referred to as the 'Rahu Ratna' in India – because of its long standing association with the Vedic planet Rahu - a lunar node of intersection between the Sun and the Moon. It is associated with mind and its wandering nature hence it impacts a person's mental and spiritual equilibrium. If the Planet Rahu is not aligned in its correct position, it can create a personality which is insecure and argumentative. It can also cause mental inequalities and lack of harmony in marital life. Therefore it is important to wear a Hessonite so that Rahu can be pacified and more cosmic energy can be used to balance mental and spiritual equilibrium in life.

Wearing a combination of Gemstone and Rudraksha is the best way to make the most of it. Rudraksha Ratna Science Therapy® (RRST®) devised by Neeta Singhal makes the use of both Hessonite Gemstone and Rudraksha beads. It is a holistic healing therapy that uses the curative and healing properties of Rudraksha and Gemstones to balance and energize Chakras. In RRST, we deal only with natural and un-treated gemstones. The reason Rudraksha Ratna Science Therapy is widely acclaimed by many is that it works on Chakras, the very basis of life and is a holistic therapy that heals from deep within with absolutely no side effects. In RRST, setting a gemstone in a ring or in a pendant is done by placing the bhasm made of the planetary herb inside one tube and the metal that improves the planetary effects in another tube. In case of Hessonite, Doorvaa Bhasm and metal Lead are used to attract the cosmic power of Rahu. The gemstone is then energized with its precise seed mantra on a specific day to empower it to eliminate all the malefic effects of the planet and reinforce its beneficial effects. Thus, the gemstone becomes a powerful talisman suitable to be worn by any person irrespective of his birth chart.
Recommending a Gemstone based on RRST
During consultation, the blocked Chakras that are causing the mental, emotional and physical issues are identified and limiting beliefs are addressed. Chakras become imbalanced when your thoughts and attitudes tend towards fears and negativity when facing challenging situations in life. Blocked Chakras manifest emotional disorders and physical ailments. You can live a successful, loved and happy life only after your blocked Chakras are activated and balanced. As per the Chakra status and concerns of the client, a suitable combination of Gemstone and Rudraksha bead is recommended. As per the cosmic color they emit, the gemstones work on specific Chakras. So Hessonite works on Sahasrara Chakra and the RRST Consultant identifies the correct finger position for drawing maximum energy from the stone. Rudraksha and Gems are powerful agents of energy and work on releasing the negative energy stored in the form of stress in the blocked Chakras, thereby activating them and tuning them to their natural state.

Namaste Sri DharmaDev Arya & Friends, Sisters and Brothers, sorry for long absence and missed you all. Been a busy 3 odd months. Dropping by to say hi to everyone and also to mention that I'd done a 40-day discipline with a Navratna Mala which I got from Rudra Centre India. The results? Absolutely wonderful. For 10 years, everything in my life was blocked and there was no movement. I was neither here nor there. "In limbo" was the best description I could give. Upon 30-odd days of wearing the Navratna mala, everything started happening. All that was stagnant began moving at last. And fast t
Hi Neetaji, Dhramadevji I collected my fedex package from the jewel osco near my home. I really appreciate the excellent customer service you have at Rudra Center. I really like my mala (done in silver). My sister's mala looks awesome as well (sphatik + emerald+rudrakhsa). I was really impressed with the packaging that you had done. The bags + the japa mala bag were really great. I have done pooja and have started wearing my mala as well as doing ganesh japa with my custom rosary. pranaam Desikan
