How To Wear A Cat's Eye or Lehsunia

Publised on Oct 15, 2015

Mainly an opaque gem, it comes from the gem mineral chrysoberyl having a chemical composition of Beryllium Aluminum Oxide. Found in brown or brownish green color, it has a streak of light running lengthwise through it which gives it a similar look as that of a cat’s eye. Hence, it's popular nomenclature.

How To Wear Cat’s Eye:

It is very important to take care of the gemstone and the rituals when wearing it for the first time. As per the Vedic Astrology, there are certain procedures which need to adhere during this period. Below we enlist the exact guidelines for your benefit.

The Cat’s eye gemstone can be made into a ring or a pendant with silver or in panchdhatu. This ring should be worn on the middle finger of the right hand on a Tuesday Morning during Krishna Paksha (descending moon) before sunrise.

To prepare the ring for wearing, place it at the bottom of a metal bowl and add the following one by one: one:

1. Ganga Jal
2. Tulsi leaves (Indian Basil)
3. Unboiled cow’s milk
4. Honey
5. Ghee (clarified butter)

Recite the following mantra 108 times, to energize the ring

“ Om Pram Preem Proom Sah Ketavay Namah”

The ring can then be immediately taken out of the bowl and cleaned with water and worn on the middle finger of the right hand.

While it is imperative to know the exact ways of wearing a gemstone, it is equally important to identify a genuine and high-quality gemstone since the market is flooded with fakes.


1. Smoothness of surface
2. Brilliance
3. Straightness of the chatoyance, sharp cat eye effect.
4. High specific gravity i.e. it should be heavier than an average stone of the same size.


1. Increase in brilliance upon rubbing with a cloth 2. When put in a dark, the gem should shine like that of an actual cat’s eye.
