A brilliant precious stone.
It is mentioned in Agni Purana, Chapter 3;
Valmiki Ramayana Balakanda Sarga 45, Stanza 39 and Mahabharata, Adi Parva.
This precious stone floated up at the time of the churning of the sea of Milk. This jewel which originated from the ghee in the sea of Milk, was worn on the breast by Visnu.
“This divine jewel called Kaustubha came up in the middle of ghee and stayed in the breast of Visnu, spreading its rays everywhere.”
(Maha-bharata, Adi Parva, Chapter 18, Stanza 37) .
Sri Krishna’s jewel is called Kaustubha. When He entered Kaliya-hrada, the wives of the snake offered this jewel to Him with their own hands.
