Known to be a substitute for diamond, this bead is related to Venus. It is called the ‘Shivratna’. Wearing this bead brings about financial, mental and social benefits. According to Hindu astrology, if the moon is wrongly placed in the horoscope then this mala should be worn to lessen the side effects. It should be used to meditate on Lakshmi, Durga, Saraswati and other Goddesses. As pure crystal is transparent, it brings clarity in thought and helps reduce anxiety, making the mind calm and aiding in concentration. Wearing a crystal mala ensures very sound and undisturbed sleep.
