KNOW ABOUT KHOONI NEELAM
What is Khooni Neelam?
Neelam, popularly known as Blue Sapphire, is regarded as one of the most powerful remedial gemstones for eliminating the malefic aspects of planet Saturn or ‘Shani.’ The gemstone possesses significant and influential powers which absorbs the planetary radiations and bestows the native with immense wealth, good health, success in career or profession, and a successful life, the condition being it suits the native. If in case the sapphire does not suit the individual, then it has several negative impacts too such as imprisonment, loss of wealth, poor health and even death of the native.
The well-known term ‘Khooni Neelam’ literally means ‘A bloody (blood-colored) Blue Sapphire’ which comprises of dark pink or red color streaks or spots in it. The two-colored sapphire depicts the combined divine powers of Mangal as well as Shani i.e. the planets Mars and Saturn respectively. These two planets are considered as the most influential and malefic planets out of all and they are the one responsible for all sorts of unusual events, war, chaos, accidents, and even deaths.
The word ‘Khooni’ symbolizes ‘Killer’ and it offers the stone a terrifying and mystical impression. The individuals who prefer wearing a Blue Sapphire gemstone refrain themselves or are cautious to wear the ‘Khooni Neelam.’ Thus, the natives who have adequate placements of the planets Mars and Saturn in their horoscope should only wear the Khooni Neelam and that too under the supervision and guidance of a professional astrologer.
Khooni Neelam is also popular as ‘Raktambari Neelam’ which is considered as the most influential and strongest form of the gemstone blue sapphire. It is advised and recommended that the blue sapphire stone should always be worn in Platinum or Silver only and the natives must avoid wearing it in Gold. The Neelam stone is usually worn in the middle finger of the active hand (right hand for the right-handed individuals and the left hand for the left-handed individuals) of the native. The most adequate time for the natives to wear a Blue Sapphire is on any Saturday evening during the Krishna Paksha.
