Care and Maintenance of Hessonite (Gomed) – Navaratna Gemstone

Hessonite , known as Gomed in Sanskrit, is associated with Rahu and is cherished for its honey-colored hues. Proper care is crucial to maintain its luster and astrological properties.

1. Gentle Cleaning : Clean your hessonite with a soft brush and lukewarm soapy water. Avoid using harsh chemicals. Rinse it thoroughly and dry with a soft, lint-free cloth.

2. Chemical Exposure : Keep hessonite away from cosmetics, perfumes, and household cleaning products, as they can damage the stone's surface.

3. Wearing Rituals : For those who follow astrology, it's advised to purify the hessonite in holy water and chant the Rahu mantra "Om Raahave Namah" before wearing it.

4. Scratch Prevention : Store hessonite separately in a fabric-lined jewelry box or a soft pouch to prevent it from scratching or being scratched by other jewelry.

5. Avoid Direct Sunlight and Heat : Prolonged exposure to sunlight and high temperatures can affect the color of hessonite. Store it in a cool, dark place.

6. Regular Professional Checkups : Have your hessonite jewelry inspected regularly by a professional to ensure that the settings are secure.

7. Impact Avoidance : Despite its hardness, hessonite can crack upon strong impact. Remove it during physical activities or sports.

8. Ultrasonic Cleaner Warning : Be cautious when using ultrasonic cleaners, as they can sometimes damage hessonites, particularly if there are inclusions or the setting is fragile.

9. Mindful Wearing : Respecting the gemstone and wearing it with positive intentions is believed to enhance its astrological effects.

10. Re-energizing : To rejuvenate your hessonite, place it under moonlight, which is believed to cleanse and recharge its energies.

By adhering to these care instructions, your hessonite gemstone will maintain its enchanting beauty and potent astrological benefits, making it a treasured asset in your collection.
