About Hessonite Gemstone


Gomed gemstone or Gomedhikam stone is a precious gemstone in Hindu Mythology. 

  • The Gomed stone in English is known as Hessonite Garnet and is associated with the Garnet family of minerals.
  • It was a favorite of the Greeks and Romans.
  • It is also known as the Rahu stone.
  • The chemical composition of the Gomed Ratna is similar to grossularite which is a part of the garnet group consisting primarily of calcium and aluminum. 

Usually, it is found in placer deposits across the world. The best hessonite stone is found in Sri Lanka and India, while some deposits are also present in Brazil, Canada, Madagascar, and Tanzania. It brings clarity and equilibrium to a person’s mind, which might get distorted due to Rahu’s impact. It also infuses creative inspiration into a person’s mind and helps rid them of negative thoughts or anxiety. 

Not only mental, but the stone makes a person’s spiritual side healthy and active. In ancient times, there was a belief that stone had talismanic powers.

1. What is the difference between garnet and gomed? 

You can visualize a garnet as a big family of which hessonite or gomed is a part. Their difference lies in chemical composition and the planetary energies they support.

2. In how many days does a gomed stone show effects? 

You should wait 10-15 days to see the significant effects of the hessonite stone. Though you can witness some benefits earlier, long-term impacts need some days to materialize. The positive impact usually stays for about five years. 

3. Can I wear yellow sapphire and hessonite together?

No, you must not pair a yellow sapphire with a hessonite gomed as both have conflicting energies. You must consult a professional astrologer before pairing two gemstones.
