Subject: English-telugu translation of gem stones

Hi ammas..

I want to know the English translations for all the 9 sacred/gem stones. Here are some of the telugu names that I know of: pushyaragam, gomedhikam, pacha, kempu, neelam, vajram etc. I know some of them like diamond (vajram), emerald (pacha), etc. I would like to get a list of all the 9 stones in English (with telugu translation). Thank you.

- Jaya.
