Emerald is the gemstone for Mercury in Vedic Astrology (Jyotish). We carry only the highest quality, cleanest emeralds available. Both light, minty green emeralds and deep forest green emeralds work for Jyotish. All emeralds have some form of inclusions, but ours are carefully chosen for maximum flawlessness.
Green Tourmaline (11)
Green tourmaline is the “uparatna,” or secondary gemstone, for Mercury in Jyotish (Vedic Astrology). All of our natural Brazilian green tourmaline are the finest quality available and a deep green color. It’s not as potent as emerald, so it should be a larger size for good results. (Tourmaline is routinely subject to low heat treatment, so low that it doesn’t change the structure of the stone and can’t be detected by laboratory instruments. This does not affect its Jyotish properties.)
