Rahu is not a planet per se, rather it is the north node of the moon and is known as the dragon's head in Vedic astrology. The north node of the moon is the north point on the moon's orbit which crosses the ecliptic.
Hessonite is the stone of Rahu and can be a very powerful stone. It is similar to Blue Sapphire and because of it's destructive power, it is feared by many. Nevertheless, it is a powerful gemstone and if it suits you, it can bring all that the world has to offer - although, it does not bring contentment. Those ruled by Rahu are anxious for more and have trouble being satisfied even if they have everything their heart desires.
A pure and transparent Hessonite gemstone neutralizes the perceived negative effects of Rahu. It removes fear, creates clarity of mind, and helps in spiritual growth. It bestows financial prosperity. It also increases appetite, vitality, confers good health, wealth, happiness and prosperity. It is good for those suffering from allergies, skin disorder, piles, epilepsy, infection of the eyes, cold, sinus infection, fatigue, insomnia, and problems related to blood pressure.
