Additional information


Care and Maintenance of Coral (Moonga) – Navaratna Gemstone

Coral , known as Moonga in Sanskrit, symbolizes the robust energy of Mars. As an organic gem formed from marine polyps, coral requires unique care to maintain its vibrant color and sheen.

1. Gentle Cleaning : To clean coral, use a soft, damp cloth. Avoid harsh chemicals and cleaners. If necessary, a mild soap solution can be used, but rinse thoroughly with clean water.

2. Avoid Chemical Exposure : Protect coral from cosmetics, perfumes, and hairsprays as they can damage its surface. Always wear your coral jewelry after applying these products.

3. Wearing Rituals : For those who follow astrological practices, purifying the coral gemstone with holy water and chanting the Mars mantra "Om Mangalaya Namah" before wearing can enhance its astrological effects.

4. Regular Wear : Regular wearing of coral jewelry helps to maintain its luster. The natural oils from your skin keep the coral bright.

5. Storage Solutions : Store coral separately in a soft cloth pouch to prevent scratches. Avoid keeping it in overly dry or humid environments.

6. Avoid Heat and Light : Prolonged exposure to direct sunlight and high temperatures can cause coral to fade or become brittle. Store away from heat sources and direct light.

7. Professional Inspection : Have your coral jewelry periodically inspected by a professional, especially the settings, to ensure the coral is secure.

8. Restringing Beaded Coral : If your coral is strung, such as in a necklace, ensure it's restrung periodically, as the thread can wear out over time.

9. Respecting the Gemstone : Coral is revered for its metaphysical properties. Treat it respectfully and avoid wearing it in stressful or negative situations.

10. Avoiding Water Damage : Remove coral jewelry before engaging in water activities, as salt water and chlorine can damage it.

Following these guidelines will help preserve the natural beauty and integrity of your coral gemstone, keeping it a cherished part of your collection for years to come.
