The Hidden Power of Astrological Gemstones

According to ancient Indian sages or “rishis”, natural gemstones transmit powers like radio crystals transform sound. Only fine, eye clean, unheated and untreated gems promote good health and fortune, while poor quality gems have the opposite effect.

The power of gems comes from the nine planets of the ancient science and art of Vedic Astrology. The nine planets and their associated gems are: ruby for the Sun, natural pearl for the Moon, yellow sapphire for Jupiter, emerald for Mercury, diamond for Venus, blue sapphire for Saturn, red coral for Mars, hessonite garnet for Rahu (north lunar node), cat’s eye for Ketu (south lunar node). The planets influence different aspects of life and, as luminous bodies, also radiate specific cosmic colors.

According to the ancient enlightened sages, the colors radiated by the nine planets are identical to the cosmic colors of the nine gemstones. These nine colors are understood to be the very essence of the nine planets. It is through these colors that the planets radiate their energy and influence.

Out of all the elements in nature, gemstones constitute the most condensed form of concentrated color, providing an inexhaustible source of cosmic color rays. When properly selected and worn, these gems with their cosmic colors have the power to benefit all areas of health, finances, career and relationships.

IMPORTANT! To get the maximum benefit from astrological gemstones, it is strongly recommended that the exact gem prescription as regards gem size, precious metal, proper mounting*, wearing location and auspicious timing be followed.
