Puranic Quotes 
very flawed gems

Ref. Sri Garuda Puranam
by Paramahamsa Sri Suta Goswami

NATURAL RUBY: Sri Suta Goswami said, “A ruby, although genuine, should not be worn if it has strong color banding, excessive inclusions within like numerous internal cracks, a sandy appearance, a rough surface, or is dull and lusterless. Anyone using such a flawed ruby, even out of ignorance, will suffer from disease, or loss of fortune.” Chap. 70

NATURAL PEARL: Sri Suta Goswami said, “A pearl of the auspicious quality should be white, translucent, round in shape, lustrous, and of good weight and size.” Chap. 69

NATURAL YELLOW SAPPHIRE: Sri Suta Goswami said, “Yellow sapphires must be evenly colored, flawless and well shaped in order to be considered auspicious.” Chap. 74

NATURAL HESSONITE (Karketana): Sri Suta Goswami said, “Hessonites which are flawed, lack luster, or white or bluish in color are considered inferior and inauspicious.” Chap. 75

NATURAL EMERALD: Sri Suta Goswami said, “Emeralds considered inauspicious are blackish, devoid of luster, appearing dirty inside or dried and brittle. Anyone concerned with their own well-being should never purchase or wear any oiled, dyed, or treated emerald. Also, emeralds of mixed colors are strictly forbidden.” Chap. 71

NATURAL DIAMOND: Sri Suta Goswami said, “Anyone wearing a seriously flowed or clouded diamond which refracts a reddish glimmer from defective facet edges, will surely be abandoned by the goddess of fortune. A diamond containing red spots will bring ruin.” Chap. 68/2 

NATURAL BLUE SAPPHIRE: Sri Suta Goswami said, “Blue sapphires and all other gems should never be subjected to burning for improving their color and clarity, as misfortune will certainly befall anyone doing so.” Chap. 72

NATURAL RED CORAL: Sri Suta Goswami said, “A well polished, bright coral with rich, soothing dark-red colors and without flaws is considered very auspicious. It possesses power to increase the riches and wheat supplies of its wearer and also removes obstacles and dangers.” Chap. 80

NATURAL RED GARNETS: Sri Suta Goswami said, “As with rubies, garnets colored like the petals of the red lotus are considered the rarest and most beautiful and possess the mystic virtue of increasing both the wealth and progeny of their owners.” Chap. 77

NATURAL GREEN JADE: Sri Suta Goswami said, “Among all gems, fine quality jade has the greatest ability to remove negative karmic reactions.” Chap. 79

NATURAL QUARTZ CRYSTAL: Sri Suta Goswami said, “Knowledgeable gemologists advise that flawed varieties that are included, fractured, or discolored should be completely avoided.” Chap. 76

PGA NOTE: Although in Sri Garuda Purana, Sri Suta Goswami has said nothing about gem choosing methods nor planetary associations (except for alluding to gems for the Sun and Moon),  WHAT HE DOES REPEAT IS: “Clarity, quality, purity!!!” Over and over Sri Suta Goswami says to use top quality, flawless gems ONLY! As well as repeating that very flawed gems are actually considered to be harmful!
