Step 1
Please check from a competent astrologer whether or not Red Coral suits you. Wearing a gemstone that does not suit you as per your astrological chart is not recommended. Gemstones bring changes in your natural energy fields and wearing a non suitable gemstone can be harmful. Only upon verification of the above, move to Step 2.

Step 2
Buy Red Coral on a Tuesday during the Shukla Paksha (the ascending moon cycle). If you have problems purchasing a Red Coral on Tuesday, then, purchase it on a Sunday or a Thursday. Red Coral may also be purchased when the nakshatra (constellation) is Mrigshira, Chitra, Anuradha or Dhanishtha. Never buy a Red Coral on a Saturday.

Step 3
The ring should be set in a mixture of Gold and Copper and the stone mounted in open backed ring such that it can touch the finger that you wear on. The weight of the Red Coral should be not be less than 6 rattikas. (1 Rattika = 0.9 carats). Try to get Red Coral that are 9, 11 or 12 rattikas in weight. It should not be 5 or 14 rattikas in weight.

Step 4
Upon receiving the ring, decide on the day to wear it keeping in mind the rules given in Step 2. The ring should be worn one hour after sunrise until 11:00 AM.

Step 5
Sit facing East or a Red coloured Asana. Keep the ring immersed in raw cow’s milk. Then wash it with Ganga – water or water kept in a copper pot overnight. After it has been washed, keep the ring on a red cloth on which a Mars Yantra (numerical yantra may be used) is drawn with red sandalwood, gorochan, saffron or roli.

Step 6
Offer flowers, incense to the yantra and the Red Coral and chant the following mantra 108 times:

"Aum Bhaum Bhaumaye Namah Aum" or  "Om Sri Sarvanabhavaaya Namah"

Step 7
Wear the ring.
