Gomed or Gomedh or Gomed Stone or Gomed Gemstone or Gomed Gem is the Hindi name of Hessonite Garnet. This Gemstone is very popular Gem in India. The most popular variety is of Gaya Gomed which is available in qualities that are valued from Rs15 per ratti to Rs.150 per ratti.
Being a very economical Gemstone, Gaya Gomed is available and worn in silver rings by people to ward off the evil effects of Rahu – the planet that is dreaded for its ability to bring troubles in lives of people. This quality of Gomed is used in making “Rahu Dan Yantra” the donation of which is recommended by Agni Puran to reduce the malefic effects of Rahu in a natal chart.
The other variety of Gomed is mined in Orissa. This is a transparent Gemstone and comes in a Yellow and Chocolate colours. This is quite a valuable Gemstone – this has a very beautiful transparent colour. Its colours and the depth of colours and shine has a unique mystic feeling attached to it. Its varieties are available from Rs.250 per ratti to Rs.750 per ratti. This Gem is often seen in hands of people and in Jewellery too. Jewels of silver and gold with rows of 1 to 2 carat Orissa Gomed is often seen in showcases of Jewellers and in the necks and ears of beautiful trendy women.
The most sought after variety of Gomed is Ceylonese Gomed. As the name indicates this Gomed is mined in Sri Lanka. This is a beautiful transparent Gemstone. Its precious varieties are rare and costly. This Gemstone is available in various varieties ranging from Rs.1100 per ratti to Rs.5100 per ratti. This is an excellent Gemstone and is often seen in hands of successful people. I have seen ladies wearing this Gemstone with Diamonds on its sides. This Gemstone has a mixture of Red and Yellow colour in it – which makes it look lustrous and eye catching.
Astrologically Gomed is strongly recommended for those people who have Rahu placed in a strong position in their natal chart. If Rahu is placed in a positive position in a natal chart then it gives a person a very strong BHAGYA he or she is able to cut through the competition and reach a very high level on professional ladder. Some of the most influential people in the history had Rahu in a very prominent benefic position. This gave them an edge in life and they were able to rise to a very high position in life. These include the ex Prime Minister of India Mrs. Indira Gandhi, ex Home Minister Sardar Vallab bhai Patel etc
I have been recommending and providing Gomed to my clients since 1987 I have observed that it is a potent Gemstone which can mold a number of uncomfortable positions in life. The first effect if rightly worn is that it can make the wearer stress free and he starts having some added advantages in all situations of life.
Where Rahu is malefic its donation in the form of “Rahu Dan Yantra” is recommended so that its malefic effects are minimized. I have observed in my long professional life that this has a strong impact in reducing the malefic effects of Rahu but its effects are not permanent and this Dan need to be repeated after every birthday.
