Gomed /Hessonite (Gomedika) Gemstone
Gomedha or Hessonite represents Rahu, the ascending node of the moon. It’s natural significations include worldly desires, worldly benefits, laziness, gratification, and ignorance. It is by nature unpredictable and creates sudden changes and influences, rigidity and passion. Gomed /Hessonite is similar to Sani or Saturn in its nature and influence. Traditionally, Rahu is known as the “head of the dragon”. This Gomed /Hessonite honey yellow stone counters the delays that the malefic planet Rahu causes in the fulfillment of ambitions. It also protects against the evil eye and from sudden misfortune, stomach ailments, disaster, insanity, and evil spirits. It helps in dealing with people effectively. Best worn when Rahu is in Gemini, a 6 to 12 carat stone is normally set in gold and worn on the second finger of the right hand.
