How to wear and activate emerald (Panna) stone for Mercury (Budh)

Wearing an emerald stone, which is associated with the planet Mercury, involves specific steps to ensure its positive effects. Here’s a detailed guide on how to wear an emerald stone:

1. Ensure Suitability

Before wearing an emerald, it’s crucial to confirm that it is astrologically suitable for you. Emerald is known to enhance intellect, communication, and creativity.

  • Consult an Astrologer: A professional astrologer can analyze your birth chart to determine if emerald is beneficial for you. Wearing the wrong gemstone can have adverse effects.  You can also ask from our inhouse astrologer at Vedic crystals

2. Selecting the Stone

  • Quality: Choose a high-quality, natural, untreated emerald. Look for good clarity, color (vibrant green), and minimal inclusions.  You can also buy it from us at reasonable price . Click here to buy
  • Weight: Astrologically, it is recommended to wear an emerald that weighs at least 4 carats (4 ratti+)

3. Setting the Stone

  • Metal: Emeralds are typically set in gold or silver. Gold is often preferred for its conductive properties. You can also wear it in Punch Dhatu.
  • Design: The stone should be set in a way that it touches your skin when worn, allowing the energies to be transmitted to your body.

4. Purification and Activation

  • Purification: Before wearing, cleanse the stone to remove any negative energies it may have picked up. Soak it in a mixture of milk, honey, and water or Ganga Jal (holy water) for a few hours.
  • Mantras: Chanting mantras can help in activating the stone. Recite the Mercury mantra: “Om Budhaya Namah” 108 times.

5. Best Day and Time

  • Day: Wednesday is the day associated with Mercury and is considered the most auspicious day to wear an emerald.
  • Time: The recommended time is during the morning hours

6. Wearing the Ring

  • Finger: Traditionally, an emerald ring is worn on the little finger of the right hand.
  • Ritual: On the chosen Wednesday, after performing the purification and chanting the mantra, wear the ring in the morning hours.

7. Observing Effects

  • Immediate Impact: Emeralds can show their effects relatively quickly. Pay attention to changes in your communication, intellect, and creativity after wearing the stone.
  • Monitoring: If you experience adverse effects, stop wearing it. It is not for you.
