Astrological Benefits of Yellow Sapphire (Pukhraj Stone)

Publised on Sep 25, 2013

Yellow Sapphire is considered to be one of the most auspicious and beneficial stones out of all the Navratnas (nine gems) as prescribed in the Hindu scriptures. Widely known as 'Pukhraj' stone, or Push Raja (Sanskrit) and Peetmani, this stone claims a very special place in the world of astrology. The Pukhraj Stone is believed to hold the powers of the planet Jupiter.

Jupiter is the heaviest planet in the solar system, hence imparting distinctive powers to Yellow Sapphire (Pukhraj) over other precious stones. The wearer of this stone must ascertain its suitability for them from a learned astrologer and a Gemologist to draw maximum benefits out of it.
