A gemstone is a collective term for all ornamental stones that possess
attributes like beauty, rarity, durability. Astral gems, apart from
these material properties, increase the psychic powers of an individual
by their curative powers. Astral gems also have the power to ward
off the ill-effects of planets.
The gem stone should be set in the right metal and with the right
weight. It should be worn on the correct finger of the working hand.
Each gem, with its constant source of specific rays,gives rise to
constructive vibrations that have therapeutic powers.
Gems are the wonders of nature available in various colors representing
the quality of the nine planets that influence our earth and living
things, especially human beings. The sages have clearly stated the
color of the planets and their radiance etc without any gadgets
by sheer clairvoyance. Incidentally, gems have similar radiance
attributed to a particular planet. For example, Saturn was represented
by blue sapphire, Jupiter by yellow sapphire, Mars by red coral
In horoscopes, we find that some of the planets have lesser strength
due to various types of afflictions. In order to offset these afflictions
and to enhance the strength of the planet, a particular gem is prescribed
like a medicine to cure the particular deficiency.
