In this posture Lord Ganesha is depicted with his four hands. The upper right hand has a 'pharshi' . The lower right hand is raised with palm facing outwards away from the body with fingers flexed. This hand gesture is called 'Abhayamudra' that offers protection for all from all evils. The upper left hand is shown holding a flower. The lower left hand holds a special sweet called 'Modak or Laddoo'. It is believed that it is the favorite sweet of Lord Ganesha

Ganesha is one who clears your way of all obstacles. His other name is Vighnaharta, i.e. the one who takes away all impediments, obstacles, sorrows. So, he is worshipped to ensure the success of any new venture. The intention here, is to pre-emptively remove any difficulties which might come in the path of success. Such is Ganesha's reputation of ensuring a smooth flow of all operations, that he is the first one to be worshipped during yajnas.

Ruby-zoisite is the natural combination of both ruby and zoisite crystals in a single specimen. It is also known as 'anyolite', a name derived from the Masai word for 'green' (anyoli). Other name variations include "ruby-in-zoisite" and "Tanganyika artstone". Ruby-zoisite was discovered at the Longido mining district in northeast Tanzania by Tom Blevins, an English prospector. To this day, Tanzania remains the only source for ruby-zoisite. Blevins had initially thought that he had found vast ruby deposits in 1949, but it later turned out to be a green zoisite matrix with large inclusions of mostly opaque ruby. Ruby-zoisite is also heavily included with black hornblende minerals.

Depending on its primary constituents, ruby-in-zoisite can vary tremendously in color, pattern and hardness. Zoisite provides an earthy green color, while ruby inclusions give it pink and red highlights. Zoisite's hardness ranges from 6.5 to 7 on the Mohs scale, whereas ruby has a hardness of 9. Although ruby-zoisite is not fine ruby, it eventually found a purpose in carvings and cabochons.
