In Tamil, it is called Pushparagam only. There is one more variety called "Kanaka Pushparagam" which is yellow in shade and considered for wearing for propitiating Guru or Jupiter. This is actually a yellow citrine. I don't know whether the stone called Pokhraj in northern India is the same as Kanak Pushparagam. Pokhraj is yellow Topaz. Topaz is also a basic stone variety. Topaz has hardness of about 8.0 in MOH's scale. It is also a bit expensive. Similarly yellow sapphire with Moh value of 9 (Corrundum family) is also expensive. Hence, I think pushparagam must be white quartz with 7 mohs.
