Emerald (Panna Stone) – Facts, Properties & Benefits

Before knowing the Benefits and Procedure of wearing Emerald for Astrology, Let us know some Facts about Emerald Stone.

Scientific facts about Emeralds

Emerald stone is called ‘Panna’ in Hindi. It belongs to Beryl Species, a mineral species that also includes Aquamarine, Morganite as well as beryls in other colors.
Emerald’s Color ranges from Pure Green to Greenish Blue. Emeralds are formed when chromium, vanadium and iron are present in the mineral beryl. The varying presence of these three elements gives emerald its range of color. Chromium and vanadium make an intense green color. Iron gives the stone a bluish tint.

Properties of Emerald

Hardness: 7.5 – 8 (Moh’s scale of hardness)
Optic Character: Anisotropic (Doubly Refractive)
Refractive Index (RI): 1.570 – 1.585
Specific Gravity: 2.72

Emerald Mines: Origin and Sources of Emerald Stone

Emeralds are mostly found in Columbia, Zambia, Brazil & Zimbabwe. Zambian Emeralds are considered the best for astrological benefits. However, Columbian emeralds are popular in Jewelry. Zambian Emeralds have deeper green tone, which is considered very positive as per astrology. Columbian Emeralds have light green color and hence less preferred.

Quality and Pricing of Emeralds:

The Pricing of Emeralds depends primarily on its Color, Transparency, Luster and Cutting Style. The Top Quality Emeralds have lively Green color (but not Blackish Green or Bluish Green) with fair transparency and Luster. It should be cut in perfect symmetry. The Best Cutting styles for Emerald are Rectangular-Step Cut and Oval Cut.
As Per current market trend the price of acceptable Gem-quality Emeralds starts at around Rs 2000 per carat. The Top Quality can range upto Rs 50,000 per Carat (Approximate Price in India as on 8th March 2016). If you find a good quality emerald stone below Rs 2000 per carat, then there is a strong reason to get cautious. These days many Synthetic, look-alike Treated or even Used Emeralds are available in market. Always insist for certificate from a Government registered reputed Laboratory. Shubh Gems has technical collaboration with GJI (Gemological & Jewellery Institute), India for Testing and Certification for Gemstones. GJI is one of the oldest government registered Gem Testing Laboratory in Delhi. We are direct importers of Emeralds from Zambian and Columbian mines. Minimization of middlemen and agents allow us to provide best quality gemstones at best price. This is our Unique Strength that we derive through our ‘Mine-to-Market’ concept.

Astrological Facts about Emerald – Benefits and Effects

Emerald stone is associated with Planet Mercury (Buddha). Mercury is associated with Wisdom and Intelligence. Strong Mercury ensures good intelligence, Sharp memory and Clarity of Thoughts. Strong mercury enhances communication and Public Speaking. Strong Mercury helps to excel in the field of Business, Computation, Accounting, Social media or Public relations. Afflicted Mercury can result in low self-esteem, fear of Public Speaking, Stammering, Stage fright or any problem related to public speaking or social gatherings. Weak Mercury also increases chances of being cheated or break in education and career. If you are also suffering from any of the above-mentioned problems, then you must wear Emerald stone.

Choosing the Right Emerald Stone for Astrological Benefits

The Basic principle while choosing a gemstone is to see that the gemstone has Perfect Color and should not have any un-desirable inclusions. Every natural Stone has inclusion but the stone, which is worn for astrology should not have any negative inclusions like Black Spots, Knots or Cracks. Emeralds have inherent nature of having Thread-like inclusion, which is acceptable but the Emerald should not have Black-Spot. Decrease in inclusions results in more transparency and hence price of emeralds rises with the decrease in inclusion. Always opt for a gemstone which does not have too much inclusion inside it. There should be passage of light through the gemstone. Wearing industrial-quality gemstones does not show any benefit as there is no flow of energy through it or there is presence of spots and crack which renders the stone useless. A good stone is one which appeals to you. That is the first step when you accept the gemstone and gemstone accepts you. The Gemstone has to resonate with you to give its effect.

      PANNA OR EMERALD IS NEVER WORN IN GOLD ! if u have a business talking about gemstones then the least you can do is have your facts checked by a qualified Vedic Astrologer! ANYONE WHO TELLS U THAT PANNA / EMERALD CAN BE WORN IN GOLD , HE DOESNT KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT VEDIC ASTROLOGY !

      Panna in gold causes excessive aggression. If you wear panna in gold it will destroy your mental health and your mental balance and will make u very very aggressive. I personally know people to whom this has happened. They became aggressive as soon as they put on the ring with panna set in gold , and became calm as soon as they took it off.



      REMEMBER IN ASTROLOGY, LITTLE KNOWLEDGE CAN BE VERY DANGEROUS. And frankly, if you believe in Karma then this cant be good for you if you are giving dangerous incorrect information out to general public. If you believe even a little bit in authentic vedic astrology , then please first do your homework properly by consulting really good vedic astrologers and only then publish such information about gemstones. Gemstones worn the wrong way can be very very dangerous. Plus when u tell people to wear panna with gold , it shows that people who run this website dont know jack shit about genuine vedic astrology !!
