Pearl - Certified Natural (4)
Natural pearl is the primary gemstone for the Moon in Vedic Astrology (Jyotish). Top quality natural pearls are nearly impossible to find, so we are fortunate to find them when we can. All of our natural pearls are GIA Certified.

Pearl - Tissue Nucleated (19)
Tissue-nucleated pearls are the only type of cultured pearl that produce good results for Vedic Astrology. This is because they are pure “nacre,” or pearl material, all the way to the core of the stone. (Most cultured pearls have a plastic or bead nucleus, making them useless for Jyotish.)
All of our tissue-nucleated pearls have been carefully selected for optimal roundness, whiteness, and luster. They are a sustainable alternative to Certified Natural Pearls, which are virtually extinct in proper Jyotish quality.
Moonstone is the third choice for a Moon gemstone in Vedic Astrology. Unlike the more common rainbow moonstone, which is often heavily included, astrological moonstone should be as clean as possible. We recommend large sizes for optimal effect. All of our moonstone is ideal for Jyotish purposes.
