Hessonite or Gomed (Hindi) is a honey-shaded Calcium Aluminum Silicate having a significant spot in the Hindu sacred writings. This stone is accepted to be controlled by the Vedic planet ‘Rahu’. Hessonite gets its name from the Greek word ‘Hesson’ which represents sub-par’. It is named so in light of the fact that ‘Rahu’ or some of the time ‘Mythical serpent head’ in Western Astrology, is a malefic planet.
