Red Coral

Composition: Red Coral is found at the bottom of the sea. It is composed of skeletons of zoophytes and is therefore opaque. Its specific gravity is 2.6 to 2.7 and hardness about 3-4.

Benefits: Mars is situated very near to earth; therefore its influence in our lives is very great and prominent. It governs the head and brain, genital organs, generative system, muscular system, marrow bile, nose, nasal passage and forehead. Mars clears out waste products from the blood and body and thus keeps the body fit. That is why he rules over the excretory glands, kidney, urinary system, genital organs, penis, rectum, and sweat glands. Coral can cure anemia, depression, melancholia, lassitude, convulsions, fits, fainting, weakness, low blood pressure and general debility.

Who should wear: Mars denotes accident,s untimely deaths, injuries, wounds, operations, suicides, murder, criminal acts, muscular ailments, blood troubles, head, and excretory organs etc. If Mars occupies the 1st, 4th, 6th, 7th, 8th or 12th house use of Coral should not be suggested but use of Coral in case of placement of Mars in other houses prevents the ailment and adversities as explained above. For Cancer, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius, Pisces ascendants Coral will be very useful if Mars is well disposed. Aries and Sagittarius are next to these ascendants.

Red Coral is very useful for persons engaged in police, security, defence, ordnance, arms and fire fighting and surgeons.

Compatibility: Coral may be worn with Pearl and Gomed as they act as catalytic agent if worn with Coral. Ruby and yellow Sapphire may be worn with Indian Coral. Coral should never be worn with blue sapphire, emerald and diamond. However, if Mars is adversely placed one should wear emerald to eliminate the adversity of Mars. Emerald is antidote of red coral.

How to wear: Coral should be worn in gold or silver ring on Tuesday morning after purification in left or right hand as the cases may be. It is worn in the third finger of right hand in order to overcome the evil effects of Mars. Coral is one of the most advantageous gemstone especially for females during pregnancy, operation and various kinds of sufferings, tensions and frustration. Those who are suffering from hypertension or are prone to accidents should always wear coral.
