In Vedic astrology, natural emerald or panna / zammrud gemstone is the gem of planet Mercury/ Budh and is used in a talisman to harness its saatvik powerful energies of Mercury.
Take a look at one of the rarer emerald masterpieces – the “Emerald Unguentarium“. It was created by the famed gemstone cutter and carver, Dionysio Miseroni, working in Prague, in 1641, on the orders of the Holy Roman Emperor Ferdinand III.
It was carved out of a twin emerald crystal of Colombian origin. The Emerald Unguentarium of 2,680 carats is shaped like an irregular vessel, (most likely to reduce loss of precious caratage while cutting). Interestingly, there were futile attempts made to sell the treasure, but a worthy value seemed elusive. It is said that the Grand Duke of Tuscany, offered three tons of gold, in exchange for the enormous emerald and this was a couple of hundred years ago! And now it sits in the Imperial treasury (Schatzkammer) , in Vienna.
