Hessonite Garnet is the primary gem for Rahu, the North Node of the Moon. Garnet is actually a group of gem species, whose varieties vary slightly in physical, optical and/or chemical properties. Hessonite is a variety of Grossular or Grossularite Garnet. Hessonite occurs in many different colors, and the colors most associated with Rahu are the orange yellow and orange brown colors. Hessonite is known for a visual effect called 'heat wave' which looks like swirls of heat rising off of the pavement and makes focusing your microscope inside a Hessonite very difficult! Rahu is associated with the ultraviolet ray, the invisible wavelengths at the cold end of the spectrum.
