The present paper offers a complete inventory of authoritative passages in Sanskrit and Prakrit texts on gemmology and Sanskrit lexicons where emerald is dealt with. Fresh light is thrown on the hotly debated issue whether the description of beryl in the Arthaśāstra II, 11, 30 contains an indirect reference to emerald. The Sanskrit names of emerald are analysed and commented on. Texts revealing the history of emerald and its origin are put to the test, and the evident mistakes prevalent in the special literature are corrected. Finally, a peculiar belief on the magic power of emerald is analysed within a wider context.

Centella asiatica (L.) Urban (Apiaceae) possesses various healing effects and antioxidant properties. However, there has been very less focus on the investigation of chemotypic variations of C. asiatica found in different geographical zones of the country. In order to conserve C. asiatica, as it is an industrially valuable herb and overexploitation of this drug from wild is a common practice, different distinct accessions of C. asiatica from Nilgiri range (Deccan zones) of India were compared in relation to the levels of triterpenoid saponins. Physicochemical parameters were also evaluated in all the accessions. The metabolites investigated include madecassoside, asiaticoside, and its sapogenin, asiatic acid by high-performance thin-layer chromatography (HPTLC). CA-45 showed the highest content of asiaticoside, CA-51 showed the highest content of madecassoside, and CA-47 showed the highest content of asiatic acid among other accessions of Nilgiri range. It can be concluded that the geographical conditions (soil type and altitude) of these accessions are comparatively favorable for the production of higher levels of triterpenoid saponins in C. asiatica. The reported data will contribute to the establishment of knowledge about the triterpenoid saponin composition of different chemotypes of C. asiatica found in Nilgiri range of India in comparison to other geographical areas, and lays a foundation for the conservation and commercial cultivation of this plant.

KA II, 11, 28–41 is the earliest extant Sanskrit text on ratnaśāstra ‘gemmology’. It is a branch of traditional science and it reflects a great deal of experimental knowledge of jewellers. The present paper analyses the structure of the established text, seeks for an answer why the passages concerning diamond follow the list of the precious stones proper and why emerald is missing. The readings offered by the manuscripts and commentaries have been rechecked and the Kangle’s text has been revised at places. The revised portions of the text have been retranslated and accompanied with the necessary notes. From our investigations it has become clear that the extant text is very loosely edited and highly problematic; the text presents a mixture of vārttāśāstra (textbook of economy) and ratnaśāstra ; there are terminological inconsistencies; it seems that gemmology had existed before the edition of the KA and the place of birth of this science was South India.
