Gems are very well known all over the world for their magnificent beauty and value. Not only do they add a beauty and charm into a person’s personality, but also may play a very significant role in shaping the present and future. They have a great importance in Vedic Astrology or the Science of Lights. It is now very well known that the light is composed of seven different rays, that is, Violet, Indigo, Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange, and Red. These rays are also a constituent of the pretty rainbow.
If the ancient Indian text, the “Karam Puran” is to be taken into account, then the seven planets are considered to be condensation of the above mentioned seven different coloured cosmic rays. The planet Earth was supposed to have on it the greatest condensation of the cosmic rays in the form of natural gem stones found on it. These gem stone s are present in a large variety and are believed to attract rays of different kinds towards them. This property of the gems makes them an ideal method to be used for reducing the sufferings that are led by mis-positioned planets in a person’s birth chart. Enlisted below are certain major astrological gemstones which enhance a person’s life in a number of ways:
Ruby is a stone that has a fiery coloured appearance. It denotes devotion and desire. It blesses its wearer with a healthy life, wise personality, and exceedingly good success in the matters relating to the heart. Ruby is the birthstone for July born individuals. Ruby acts as an effective stone especially for people with the Zodiac sign Leo or for the ones who have a weak positioning of the sun in their horoscope. The stone Ruby also acts as a remedy for diminishing poverty, and inducing prosperity, name, fame, success and fame in social sphere into a person’s living.
Yellow Sapphire relates its existance to the planet Jupiter. Jupiter, being the biggest and the heaviest planet of the solar system, is considered the Guru of Gods, according to Vedas. It is also believed that Jupiter holds the ministership of the rest of the eight planets. Jupiter, according to the Vedas, loves the colour yellow. Therefore the people having a misplacement of Jupiter in their horoscope are advised to wear Yellow Sapphire by Ms Mittal. Thursday is the Day of Jupiter and north-east is his direction. Saggitarius and Pisces serve as the native Zodiac signs.
Blue Sapphire is the stone of the planet Saturn. It is considered to be the strongest and fastest acting gem as compared to the rest of the stones. It is known with various names such as Sauri Ratna (Saturn’s stone) or Shanipriya (lovable to Saturn).
