Gemstones Introduction


Our ancient scriptures consistently mention the relationship between color, planets, and gemstones. The colors arranged in order of Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, and Violet. This we see exactly in order of colors of light passing through a prism and as seen in a rainbow. This exact pattern is also seen in seven chakras or nerve centers in our body and each is associated with a particular color. The cosmic rays that manifest themselves in various wavelengths (colors) have unique affects on our mind and body.
 
GEMSTONE SELECTION
 
Generally it is always best to purchase the best quality gemstones that you can afford. The stones of lesser potency also have been found to work well and are less costly, but they need to be worn in a larger size and longer period in order to give the same strength of effects. To derive the best effects of a gem, begin to wear it after cleansing and rinsing it in purified water and exposing it to direct sun light for few hours. Gems are worn either on the appropriate finger as a ring, or on the upper arm as a bangle. Alternately the gem can be worn around the neck; most important is that the Gem is set so as to touch the skin.
 
Gemstones are prescribed for Ascendant or the Lagna lord and the Yoga Karaka (best planet) as a first choice, but only if these house lords are not connected with any malefic houses or with any Maraka (death inflicting houses) or Bhadhak house (life obstructing house). If these are connected with malefic or death inflicting houses then other planets are taken into consideration for gemstone selection.
