What is Lakshmi Moonga/ Laxmi Munga/ Tikona Moonga – Red coral for wealth
A Triangular red coral is also referred to as the Lakshmi Moonga (A Red coral) ruled by the Goddess of wealth. Does it have any special powers?
The Red Colour Organic Gemstone produced by a marine polyp in the sea is called as the Red Coral. In other words it is also called as Moonga/ Munga or Praval. This Gemstone is one of the primary Navaratna gemstones and represents the energies of planet Mars.
The deity that controls material wealth, success and assets is Lakshmi the divine consort of Sri Vishnu. She controls all wealth related issues and for material well being and for financial success Mother Lakshmi is invoked using mantras, gemstones and other esoteric means.
Lakshmi Moonga- Truth or Gimmick.
A Triangular red coral is also referred to as the Lakshmi Moonga (A Red coral) ruled by the Goddess of wealth. This particular nomenclature of “Lakshmi Moonga” is primarily the invention of certain Astrologers and traders and in majority used in North India.
The Shape of Mars in the Navagraha Mandala is Triangular and certain astrologers believe that this shape gives more powers than other shapes of Red Coral. In commercial parlance the triangular red coral is also called as a Tikona Moonga.
Is there any truth to it?
In a single word, No! There is no standard text that mentions the term” Lakshmi Moonga” neither there is any standard work of Astrology or Gemology that advocates and ascribes special powers to a Red Coral to be especially effective or bring in grace of Lakshmi ( wealth, fortune and riches). This term has been coined in all probability just to influence and impress a consumer. It is not backed by any evidence in the sacred texts.
So what kind of Coral works for Mars? Does Shape matter in terms of Results.
Well, there are several parameters for a Red Coral to be effective but the first one is that it has to be a Jyotish Gemstone. Any shape shall work provided the basic criteria are met. Wearing a triangular coral will not bring in any special results. The basic criteria that a Red Coral should fulfil before being used to harness the powers of Mars as per Astrology are:
- It is beautiful.
- It has a highly polished smooth surface that is free from blemishes and scratches.
- It is certified natural and organic using test techniques such as Raman Spectrography.
- It is indicated in the horoscope.
- It is free from any of the flaws that lead to bad results in the sacred texts.
Red Coral is often imitated and there is plastic and even camel bone masquerading as Red Coral.
Don’t give undue weight age to terms such as Desi Moonga or Lakshmi Moonga etc because in all probability these terms are used to influence in an incorrect way. Stick to the basics of what exactly is a Jyotish Gemstone and you shall get good results.
Which Side the tip of the Triangular Coral should be when worn as a ring/ pendant?
If worn as the ring the apex of the triangle( Pointed part) should be towards the body. If worn as a pendant the apex of the Triangular Red Coral Pendant should be facing upwards.

Gemologist’s remarks and comments for the Triangular Red Coral Gold ring featured today:
Featured today is a beautiful Red Coral ring set in gold teeming with the energy of the robust and active planet Mars. The first classical C that stands out is the cut. This Italian Red Coral is triangular in shape with a vivid, robust and an intense colour. The highly saturated reddish orange of the Coral is in distinct and dramatic contrast to the Golden colour of the high caratage (22KDM) gold that lends it, its distinct personality and presence.
Check the surface in the video. Flawless, blemish free highly polished mirror finish surface. It is features like this that make not only the Gemstone and ring stand out as a piece of fine jewellery but also make it is a powerful and effective tool for planetary Gem therapy.
