How should i choose which Natural Pukhraj to wear ?

For astrological effects, Ceylonese Yellow Sapphire is considered best and should preferably be worn in Gold or Panchdhatu (we recommend a higher quality stone as opposed to spending money on Gold, if budget is tight). An unheated and untreated pukhraj stone with higher clarity, less internal inclusions, and pure colour is considered best for such purpose. Citrine and Yellow Topaz are considered astrological substitutes for Yellow Sapphire, but are said to have far less power.
