I read a book on Krishna written by K.M. Munshi called "KRISHNAVATAR" in which author wrote that, Satyabhama's father had a parasmani(Gold Stone), and with proper pooja of that stone turn anything into gold.

I am sure that, the Mani was not destroyed. So does anybody know where is that Mani now? I also heard from lore that, that Mani way curse object. Is it true?

  • Why are you so sure that The Mani is not destroyed ?

  • The name of this stone is 'Syamantaka' gem. Some belief is that it is none other than the Kohinoor gem which is in England in Queen's crown. But there is no proof or that.
