How to choose a Diamond?

 As I have mentioned in my previous blog- 

Apart from these the other characteristics that should be considered for diamonds are:



  • The best diamond is unheated, untreated and naturally occurring which gives the best astrological benefits to the native. 

  • The colour of the diamond is colourless or near colourless. The diamonds having yellow tint to it are of no use in Vedic astrology. Colour grades D, E, F are colourless while G and H are near colourless. These are the varieties which are recommended. 

  • Practically 100% inclusion-free diamond is nonexistent. Some inclusions are expected but should be very less for it to be the original one. You know the more inclusions, the lesser transparency and lesser the price. Clarity of the diamond s of very importance. Grades of VS1 or better is recommended. This indicates that with a 10x power loupe also, there should be much difficulty for the observer to locate even the minor inclusions in it. The shape can be Round, Emerald Cut, Princess Cut, Radiant Cut or Oval.

  • It should have a considerable amount of solidity and hardness. The MOHS scale of hardness for a diamond is 10 i.e the hardest mineral. Its is a Mineral composes of carbon. Each carbon atom in a diamond is surrounded by four other carbon atoms and connected to them by strong covalent bonds. It is chemically resistant and has the highest thermal conductivity of any natural material.

  • Its refractive index is 2.417.

  • Its specific gravity is 3.516-3.525.

  • The best quality diamonds come from Russia, Botswana, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Australia and Canada. In India, Mumbai and Surat deal in best quality diamonds.

  • The average density is 3.52

  • Birefringence is 0.007- 0.010.

  • It should be at least 0.30 carats and above in weight so as to give prominent results. In general, 0.30-1.00 carat is ideal for astrological purpose.

  • There should be uniformity of colour and transparency in the entire stone.

  • Should be devoid of any impurity, cracks, lines, blemishes and bubbles.

  • Its lustre and radiance should be appreciated from the naked eye.

  • Should be of required heaviness which marks its difference from the fake stone.


  • How to identify an original Diamond?

    • Apart from the above-mention characteristics, one can check if given stone leaves colour or has residues on rubbing it. 
    • Only microscopic natural inclusions will be there in original Diamond and that would be very very less if any. The gas bubbles, scratches, cuts, blemishes, etc are seen in fake stones.
    • Try to scratch the stone from a key or hard material. Original stone won't get scratched as it is the hardest substance out there. If the given stone gets scratched easily then it's probably the fake one.
    • The Water Test: A real diamond has a high density. So if it floats at the surface of the water or underneath in a beaker or a glass, it is probably a fake stone. A real diamond would sit at the bottom of the glass or a beaker due to high density.
    • If you are getting the diamond at a cheaper price, then it is 99% fake as natural and original ones are expensive. While the synthetic diamond comes in 20% the lesser price, the fake one can be bought for 90-95% cheaper than the original one. So beware!
    • Diamonds quality depends on the 4C's i.e. Colour, Clarity, Cut and Carat weight. Diamonds which are bought by the experienced diamond graders are to be trusted than any other cheaper version.
    • Last but not the Least, Seek professional help when in doubt and buy certified stones always.

    How to wear Diamond?
    • Should Strictly be worn only after the consultation by the learned astrologer.
    • Should be worn on Friday of waxing moon period (Shukla Paksha).
    • Should be worn in between the two hours before and after the sunrise.
    • The best metal to wear it in is Silver, Platinum or White Gold. Those who can't or don't want to imbibe it in can make it in Panchdhaatu (an alloy of 5 elements Gold, Silver, Iron, Zinc and Copper. Sometimes Tin or Lead can be used in place of Zinc).

    Rituals related to wearing a Diamond.

    • You can either wear it as a pendant, bracelet or a ring.
    • Preferably it is worn in as a ring.
    • Dip it in a Panchamrit (a mixture of raw cow milk, cow fat i.e Ghee, honey or sugar, yoghurt and Gangajal i.e. Holy water) one night before the morning you wanna wear it.
    • In the morning, do your prayer rituals as you do in routine. Wash the ring with regular water and dip it in holy water just before wearing it.
    • Always seek blessings of Almighty and pray to them for the fulfilment of the purpose for which you are gonna wear the gemstone.
    • The "Beej Mantra- Ohm Draam Dreem Draum Sah Shukraye Namah" or Ohm Shum Shukraye Namah" to be recited 108 times so as to activate the stone. After wearing you should feed white sweets to the people around and donate white cloth to the needy. You may also donate Cow fat ( Desi ghee ) to the temple nearby you.
    • You should feed the poor and needy, especially on Fridays. (This is the most pious thing and should be done anyways without any purpose or wanting anything in return. We should feed anything in any day we want but for this, Friday is preferable).
    • Keep your stones clean.
