For countless centuries, the cultures of India and South-East Asia have revered the beautiful 9 gem talisman known as “Navaratna”. Combining the gemstones representing each of the nine planets in sidereal astrology, the navaratna is esteemed by ancient tradition as a bringer of good fortune through its favorable influence on the planetary energies. The most well-known design places a ruby, representing the sun, in the center encircled by the other 8 planetary gemstones, diamond for Venus, pearl for Moon, coral for Mars, hessonite for Rahu (the moon’s ascending node), blue sapphire for Saturn, cat’s-eye for Ketu (the moon’s descending node), yellow sapphire for Jupiter and emerald for Mercury. The following stotra may recited before using the nine gem talisman: 

“Om brahma murari, tripuranta-kari,  bhanu, shasi, bhoomi-suto, buddhas-ca,  gurus-ca, shukra, shani, rahu, ketavah,  kurvantu sarve mama su prabhatam”

I invoke the Supreme Deity who is creator, maintainer, and destroyer of the universe, and the deities presiding over the Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus, Saturn, and the shadow planets Rahu and Ketu – May they bestow their benediction upon me.”
