The name hessonite comes from the Ancient Greek word ἣσσων (hēssōn), meaning inferior. The name alludes to its lower hardness and lower density compared to other garnet species. 

It has a rich history in India and is called Gomedh/Gomed or Gomedak in Sanskrit. In some parts of India, it is referred to as Gomedhikam as well. 

Being one of the most powerful cold astrological gemstones in the world, the hessonite gem is ruled by the strong and malefic planet Rahu according to Vedic astrology. While Rahu is not a planet according to the solar system, in Vedic astrology it holds immense power. The stone is highly influenced by the planet and can help many people manage and protect themselves from the ill effects of Rahu.
