I want to know the English translations for all the 9 sacred/gem stones. Here are some of the telugu names that I know of: pushyaragam, gomedhikam, pacha, kempu, neelam, vajram etc. I know some of them like diamond (vajram), emerald (pacha), etc. I would like to get a list of all the 9 stones in English (with telugu translation). Thank you.
Ruby (Manik) White Pearl (Moti).. Red Coral (Moonga).. Emerald (Panna).. Yellow Sapphire (Pukhraj).. Diamond (Heera).. Blue Sapphire (Neelam).. Gomedha.. Cat's Eye (Lahusunia
Though several gems are used in Indian jewels, only nine of them are termed as Navaratna. They are the Ruby, Pearl, Diamond, Coral, Emerald, Topaz, Sapphire, Gomedha and Cat's Eye. Out of these Ruby, Pearl, Diamond, Emerald and Sapphire are qualified as Maharatnas meaning the Most Superior Gems.
The nine gem stones for the nine planets are as follows in english, hindi, and telugu: 1. For the Sun it is ruby, called maanikyam in Telugu. 2. For the moon it is pearl, called muthyam in Telugu. 3. For the mars it is red coral, moonga in hindi, and pagadam in telugu. 4. For mercury it is emerald, panna in hindi, and pachcha in telugu. 5. For jupiter it is yellow saphire, called pushyaraagam in Telugu. 6. For venus it is diamond, heera in hindi, and vajram in Telugu. 7. For saturn it is blue saphire, neelam in hindi, Neelamu in Telugu. 8. For rahu/uranus it is gomedha, Gomedhikamu in Telugu. 9. And finally for ketu/neptune it is cats eye, Vaidooryamu.
The seven main planets rule the seven days of the week. Sun rules Sunday. Moon rules Monday. Mars rules Tuesday. Mercury rules Wednesday. Jupiter rules Thursday. Venus rules Friday. Saturn rules Saturday. Rahu and Ketu do not rule any day
Here are the English equivalents: >Pushyaragam- Yellow sapphire >Gomedhikam - Garnet (or more precisely hessonite garnet) >Pacha - Emerald >Kempu - Ruby (looks similar to garnet in color, but is different!) >Neelam - Blue Sapphire >Vajram - Diamond
