The White Sapphire is the colourless Sapphire gemstone. White Sapphire in Hindi is known as Safed Pukhraj stone, in India. It is a precious stone and popular as a gemstone for jewellery because of its similarity in appearance to Diamond. So, if you are wearing White Sapphire Earrings, it will be almost impossible for onlookers to tell the difference and they will easily admire the Diamonds in your Earrings. The silvery sheen and shine make it a coveted stone for all types of White Sapphire jewellery, as it looks awesome. This colourless stone looks beautiful with any other coloured gemstone which is another reason for its demand in the jewellery industry. White Sapphire gemstone has deep healing properties when worn for that purpose.

This gemstone is significant in Vedic Astrology, as it carries the vibrations of the Planet Uranus, is said to be a Planet for good luck, Divine grace and immense wisdom. Just like Yellow Sapphire, ruled by Jupiter, the White Sapphire or White Pukhraj benefitsin attaining happiness in marital life.

Natural White Sapphires are quite rare and the gemstone market sells lab-created White Sapphire, which is difficult to be detected by untrained eyes. The more colourless it is, the more valuable it gets. The natural White Sapphire gemstone belongs to the mineral Corundum family and consists of Aluminium Oxide with traces of Chromium, Iron, Vanadium, Magnesium or Titanium. The coloured Sapphire stones are more easily found than the Safed Pukhraj stone, as only pure Corundum is colourless, which is rare to find. White Sapphire hardness is 9 on the Mohs scale, therefore, making it the second hardest gemstone which is an advantage in crafting rough White Sapphire into White Sapphire jewellery.

White Sapphire stones from Sri Lanka are prized most in the gemstone market due to the extraordinary clarity and large size stone. Thailand, Burma, Tanzania, Cambodia and Australia are other countries in which the Safed Pukhraj is mined.

White Star Sapphire - Another attractive aspect of the White Sapphire stone is the few White Star Sapphire which are available. The White Star Sapphire are White Sapphire stones which give a reflection of 6 rays when light falls on it from a precise angle. Known as Asterism, this is an optical phenomenon, which takes place due to presence of very fine needle-like or rather a silk thread-like inclusions in the gemstone, that reflect the mesmerising six rays, a star-like pattern when light hits it from a certain angle. The White Star Sapphire is very rarely available and therefore are valued high.


This gemstone was discovered in the island of Naxos by the ancient Greeks. They associated it with Apollo, the Sun and Light God and used to be offered to Pythia the priestess of prophecies.

Down the history, it has been used for protection, fortune and spiritual insights. It has been the epitome of power, strength, kindness and wise judgment.


In Vedic Astrology, White Sapphire stone is valued as it is connected with Planet Uranus. It is associated with originality and individuality. Planet Uranus is known as the 'Awakener', the 'reformer', giving us the wake-up call from the Universe which we may be avoiding, pushes us to face the true self and our true potential. It urges us to step out of the comfort zone, surprises us by bringing things to the forefront so that there is no other way but to take action to change our mind and attitude towards life, for our best both on individual and on a collective level. Uranus brings innovations, technological advancements, significant inventions and drastic changes on a global scale, shifting things for the better of everyone. It teaches us to be flexible, move out of stagnation and pursue our dream. Planet Uranus enhances our intuitive power to special frequencies. It is also a planet of natural disasters like earthquakes etc.

A person with a strongly placed Uranus in his Birth Chart or Kundli excels in the field of technology, innovations, discovery, invention, is intelligent and blessed with spiritual gifts of a special kind. A weaker Uranus makes the native rebellious, moody, bitter and irresponsible. The White Sapphire gemstone is advised to be worn by Vedic Astrologers to nullify the malefic effects of Uranus.

Lab-created White Sapphire is more than common in the gemstone market, so buy White Pukhraj from a trusted reputed jeweller or gemstone dealer. Safed Pukhraj stone should be energised before wearing for it to give the desired effect.

Importance of Original White Sapphire Stone

In order to get optimum Astrological benefits of White Sapphire to the wearer, a gemstone must be in its natural state. This means it should not have been subjected to heat treatment. Generally, Sapphires are heated to enhance their colour quality, whereas white Sapphires are heated to get colour fade and render them White. But heating damages the inner value and quality of gemstones. Untreated gemstones that are naturally authentic tend to provide better results. Lab-grown White Sapphire or Synthetic White Sapphire, surreptitiously resemble the natural gemstone and are sold openly in the gemstone market. Caution is warranted as these Lab-Created White Sapphire are not detectable to the common eye and they do not serve to be worn for Astrological remedy. Buy White Sapphire stone from a place which will provide a genuine Certificate of authentication.

Rudra Centre offers flawless, untreated, eye clean, brilliant, lustrous, Vedic Astrology approved superior quality, natural White Sapphire stone, of various sizes and different cuts. Our gemstones are pre-energised and ready to use. We provide the best price of White Sapphire in the market.

Wearing White Sapphire Gemstone with Rudraksha

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 White Sapphire 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 untreated 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 of a gemstone, as a ring or as a pendant, the bhasma made of the planetary herb is kept inside one tube and the metal that improves the planetary effects is kept in another tube. In the case of White Sapphire Gemstone, Basil/Neroli and metal Platinum are used to attract the cosmic power of Uranus. 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 the 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. It is only after blocked Chakras are balanced and activated that you can transform your life of suffering, obstacles, and confusions into love, success, and happiness. As per the chakra status and concerns of the client, a suitable combination of Gemstone and Rudraksha bead is recommended. As per the cosmic colour they emit, the gemstones work on specific chakras. So White Sapphire 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.

Sahasrara Chakra:

Located on the top of the head, Sahasrara (Crown) Chakra known as the “Thousand-Petalled Lotus” can be said to be the door to the Divine. This Chakra is the seat of Medha Shakti that sustains your cerebral functions like memory, concentration, thinking and intelligence. It is intimately connected with the Divine Light which is connected with our soul or our divine body. This Chakra denotes our thoughts, actions and acts of faith and worships. In this Chakra, a person attains internal awareness through meditation and prayers. This chakra cuts off all attachment to the world. An opened Sahasrara Chakra means the ultimate liberation from all illusions.

This Chakra is the purest divine light having no colour but contains the base of all colours. It is the Chakra that acts as fear personified for ignorance. It is the goal of a Yogi wherein the mind finally comes to a complete stillness and finds fulfilment in experiencing the Divine.

With an imbalanced Sahasrara Chakra, a person fails to see the true meaning of life and loses faith or belief in the Divine. He or she thinks there is no one up there to control or guide them. Also, they suffer from migraine, tension, headaches etc.

A balanced Sahasrara Chakra means a stronger connection with the Higher powers. The most important part is one becomes enlightened and feels grateful to everyone around and the Divine. The aim of Sahasrara Chakra is self-knowledge, contentment and gratitude from within.

There is a common comparison between the White Sapphire and Diamond, due to its similarity in colour and high lustre. There is a difference between the two stones in sparkle, with natural Diamond winning the race. However, the differences are not very noticeable for the untrained eyes or the normal buyer. On the Mohs scale, White Sapphire Gemstone has a rating of nine while Diamond has a rating of 10. The White Sapphire Gemstone is the second hardest natural mineral found on earth. Diamonds are scratch-resistant, which is not the case with White Sapphire. However, though White Sapphire has many healing properties including Astrological benefits, Diamonds have more to give in comparison and are way more expensive than the White Sapphire on a per-carat basis. Because of cost factors, Diamonds remain out of reach for many who desire to wear it. This is a reason for White Sapphire is popular as gemstone jewellery.
