Heera Shankha is an auspicious and natural shankha found in mountains. It is very effective in attracting Wealth Goddess. Its also known as Pahadi Shankha. The Heera Shankh takes the devotee to Laxmi Siddhi and bestows him with immense wealth, fortune, and protection. Heera Shankh is found in the mountains and has sparkling crystal-like substance in the opening and sometimes on the shell also. It's dull from the outer crust but its inner portion shines like diamonds. It is rare to found, but with very high energies.

 According to ancient scriptures, there is a story behind Heera Shankh. A long back old poor lady named Heera-ujawala used to stay in a village at North East India, earlier River Ganges used to flow there. She was an ardent devotee of Lord Vishnu and Goddess Laxmi. Once there was an epidemic that spread in the village and the villagers were dying. Her two sons and their wives too came in the grip of that epidemic and caught the disease. To save the lives of her sons, daughters-in-law, and the rest of the inmates of the village and bring prosperity again to the village She was told in her dream to do fasting and worship Laxmi Narayan. Since she was an ardent devotee and was doing a very severe penance to please Lord Vishnu and Goddess Laxmi, Lord Vishnu appeared and promised her that very soon the village will be free from all epidemics and all affected village inmates will soon be blessed with good health. But to bring prosperity she was advised to worship Dakshinavarty Laxmi Shankh as Goddess Laxmi can be pleased easily with the worship of Dakshinavarty Shankh. With the blessing of Lord Vishnu very soon the village was free from diseases. Heeraujawala continued her penance to please Goddess Laxmi. While she was performing the penance, it is said that very heavy rains started and the water from the ocean started overflowing and one strong wave of ocean unlit the 'Agni Jwala'(the fire which was lit to undertake the yajna) and destroyed the complete place and taken away all 'Ahutis' and donations like fruits, utensils, etc. along with the wave itself to the ocean. This made the Heera-ujawala very sad and in the rage of anger, she cursed that the place used immediately be relieved of the ocean and become plain. That place has a number of water species especially there was a high concentration of Dakshinavarti Shankhs and suddenly when the water receded, these species remained there and could not go back to the ocean.

Since the species was endangered, Lord Varuna (the God of the ocean) pleaded with Goddess Laxmi to save the species. Goddess Laxmi immediately appeared where the Heera-ujawala was performing the penance and requested her to take the curse back. Heera-ujwala told Laxmi that now her Shankh has become stone how can she continue her penance? Goddess Laxmi promised the lady that henceforth all the worshippers of Dakshinavarti Shankhs will be blessed with an immense fortune but they will be now available in very less numbers since most of them have changed into stones Shankhs. Goddess Laxmi gave a boon that all the stone Shankhs will be glittering with gems and precious stones. All the Shankhs which had turned into stones were named as Heera Shankhs.

The worship of Heera Shankhs will be blessed with immense fortune and luck if the Japa of the Goddess Laxmi mantra will be done using the sphatik mala. The Heera Shankhs will be the most beautiful Shankhs that can happen by virtue of the presence of different colored gems and precious stones and can take the devotee to the Laxmi Siddhi. It is highly recommended to keep Heera Shankhs in the puja room or Altar.
