According to the text of Jatakatatva, hessonite is the jyotish gemstone of Rahu (Caput Dreconis or Dragon's Head). Rahu makes its natives mutinous, detrimental, reckless and secretive. Rahu is shown as a disembodied head riding a chariot and shouting obscenities. The chariot is drawn by a tiger, representing the mind wandering in the forest of desires. Rahu is neutral, active and disruptive. He disturbs the psychological make-up of the natives and creates confusion in their minds.
The dasha of Rahu runs for a period of 18 years where the native is tested, rewarded or punished as per one's Karma. In order to reduce the malefic effects of this planet, Hessonite mala is recommended.
This mala can also be used for japas of Planet Rahu.
