Rings with green (and white) stones exactly like those Sathya Sai Baba pretends to 'materialize' are available in quantity on the internet, and at many indian jeweller shops. What Sathya Sai Baba pretends are 'green diamonds' (which, if genuine, would be literally worth a fortune each) are synthetic sapphires or even cheaper artificial gemstones. The synthetic gemstones are worn by many of the more prominent and 'favoured' Sai devotees, such as Dr. M Goldstein, Chairman of the International Sathya Sai Organization. The alleged 'green diamond' ring given to Robert Priddy at Christmas 1986 was eventually proven by a top jeweler to be a cheal synthetic sapphire, cleverly enhanced with green tinfoil paper behind the stone. These cheap 'diamonds' and other supposedly materialized objects like watches, lingams, bracelets , statuette are given to potential donors, for which most of them show their gratitude in expensive ways (See here)!
Many important politicians, judges, famous sportsmen and – of course – Sai Baba VIPs and other devotees wear Sai Baba greenstone gems, eveidently in the belief that they are the genuine thing! Such persons include T.N. Seshan, former President of the Electoral Commission of India, Mr. Indulal Shah - former Chairman of the International Sathya Sai Organization. The present Chairman of the world-wide Sathya Sai Organization, Dr. Michael Goldstein flaunts one, and also the eccentric devotee ‘schoolmaster’, Mr. Victor Kanu, who runs an authoritarian Sai school in Zambia. Another wearer of a synthetic gemstone ring is Keioth Crichlow the architect Prince Charles endorses and who designed Sathya Sai Super Speciality Hospital, Puttaparthi (photo of the ring here). Such a ring - almost identical to the one I wore here – is still worn all the time by a former friend Mr. Robert Bruce (who – since I informed him about the discovery about my ring, cut me off totally. This is how all believers behave, bar none… this is the expression of their much-vaunted ‘love for others’). When comparing our two green stones, Robert Bruce informed me that some Australian ‘expert’ on opals had said that these were worth about 5 or 6 million dollars each! Many Indian Ministers wear supposed “Sai Baba diamonds” - white or even ruby coloured sometimes. Interestingly, there is NOT A SINGLE DOCUMENT, reliable or otherwise, stating that any such stone is genuine. It may yet be that Sai Baba actually did give the occasional real diamond away to the very most important Indian leaders (for he could fear they might otherwise expose his fraudulence. Besides, he could easily afford it out of the massive donated funds he receives for 'helping the poor and suffering' which he mostly uses for quite other purposes!)
