Call it a mythical stone that very few have actually seen or call it some sort of a resurrection stone that brightens one’s life, there is so much magic in Cintamani that it is hard to ignore this beautiful gemstone. Wear a simple Silver Cintamani jewelry and see heads turn towards you. Do not be surprised if some come forward to ask about the gemstone you are wearing. The beauty and magic of Cintamani are easily accentuated by the fact that many believe that it is a stone that was worn by Gods and Goddess and areas such seen in the pictorial representation of Hindu Gods.
Before you check out Gemexi.com’s Cintamani jewelry collection, it only makes sense to know a little bit more about the stone. There are quite a few references found in both Hindu and Buddhist religious texts that show how much this stone was valued ages ago. Cintamani is called a wish-fulfilling stone, one whose reference has been found in religious scriptures. In Hindu mythology, Cintamani has been associated with Lord Vishnu and Lord Ganesha. It is also believed that Naga kinds possessed this stone. The stone’s reference has also been found in Vishnu Purana and Yoga Vasistha.
One of the most common beliefs surrounding Cintamani is that it is a gift from the skies. This belief is so believed because according to several pieces of evidence the Cintamani stone fell from the Sirius star system onto earth some millions of years ago. This occurred when a Galactic superwave that was orbiting Sirius A exploded. After the explosion fragments fell all over, some even reached Earth after traveling through interstellar space.
There is a section of people, particularly geologists, mineralogists and jewelry enthusiasts who believe that Cintamani gemstone is the only legend and that there is no physical evidence of the existence of it. This belief stems from the fact that very few people have in reality seen a Cintamani pendant or Cintamani earrings.
However, there is another school of thought which suggests the existence of Cintamani. It has been found that Cintamani’s description quite matches that of moldavite. The similarity is due to the face that both these stones are green in color and are believed to have fallen from the skies after some meteoric showers. Since there wasn’t any understanding about meteors in ancient times, meteoric impacts were probably viewed as mystical events. This is probably the reason why Cintamani is so closely associated with mysticism.
It would have been surprising if Cintamani didn’t affect a wearer in any way considering its mystical properties. It is a gemstone that takes you to a higher state of being, a place where you are conscious of your surroundings, of your environment and of your own being. There have been ample comparisons made between Cintamani, the Philosopher’s Stone and the Holy Grail. The comparisons arise from the belief that possessing any one of these can make a person invincible. While these may be just theories, the presence of Cintamani in one’s life can bring lots of change.
