In today’s blog, we will discuss Yellow Sapphire, its astrological benefits, purity, and most importantly what to keep in mind before buying this stone?
Yellow Sapphire also is known as Pukhraj in Hindi. It is one of the most important and precious gemstones and belongs to the Sapphire corundum family sharing the space with other precious gemstones like Blue Sapphire (Neelam), White Sapphire (Safed Pukhraj).
It is the stone for the planet Jupiter (Brihaspati) and it is considered as the most important gemstone in gemology.
First of all, you have to know that is it really a Yellow Sapphire? Not every yellow looking stone is a Yellow Sapphire it can be Topaz, Citrine and it can be synthetic also. There’s no substitute for an original Yellow Sapphire, you won’t get the same properties, features of a true Yellow Sapphire in a substitute Yellow Sapphire gemstone.
Astrological benefits of Pukhraj:
3 types of diffusions are done with a Yellow Sapphire Gemstone:
Most people also don't get a result from the stone because they don’t know that their stone is heated or treated. What is heating? Heating is a process which is done to enhance the color and clarity of any gemstone.
When you purchase gemstone from a government certified gemstone dealer you will get the certificate and the heating process will be clearly mentioned in the certificate. If the gemstone is heated you will never get the astrological benefits of it after heating comest threating of the gemstone, various treatments are done using beryllium to enhance the beauty, color, and clarity of the Pukhraj gemstone.
You will never get any astrological benefits of any gemstone if it is treated, heated or glass field.
Although in some countries the glass field is declared as a synthetic gemstone, not even a Yellow Sapphire.
So, the questions arise How to Overcome this problem? How to know that your gemstone is original?
You can ask for the government certification. In the certificate, it is clearly mentioned that your Gemstone is free from all the treatments. Now you should know that how to differentiate from the certificates that are available in the market? Which is the best one?
