Importance of wearing the correct Gemstone

By S N Rao

From the very dawn of civilization, man has been fascinated by brilliant, shiny, colourful shells, stones and crystals. Their possession made him more important than others. Gems have always been regarded as bringers of peace, prosperity and happiness. Favourable gems bring about name, fame, power and make life easier. Ancient scriptures from across the world have praised gems as powerful agents of energy that influence human fate and destiny, induce good energy and expel the negative energy that produces sickness and suffering.

In Tantra Shastra, a major tantrik scripture, the human body is stated to be an island of nine gems. These nine gems known as nav-ratnas correspond with the nine dhatus(ingredients) of which the human body is composed. It gives a clear statement of their correspondence to the nav-ratnas, which is very helpful in understanding the relationship of gems with the human organism. Wearing these gems influences the dhatus and the psychophysical well-being.

The puranas present beautiful stories about the origin of gems and their relationship with the nine planets. The nav-ratnas (nine gems) are divided into two groups:-Precious and Semiprecious. Diamond, pearl, Ruby, Blue-Sapphire and Emerald are precious gems whereas hessonite, yellow sapphire, cat’s eye and coral fall in the category of semi-precious gems. This division is based neither on the market value of the gems nor on their brilliance, luster or durability but on their utility and their influence on the human psyche, body, chemistry and electromagnetic field. There is no disagreement in the relationship of gems to planets. Most Indian astrologers and
gem therapists agree on the use of gemstone related to the moon sign (rashi). (The moon sign means the placement of moon in a particular sign of the Zodiac at the time of birth). It is not always beneficial to select gemstones just because they are related to moon sign (rashi). To wear a gem, is to add the energy of the planet related to the gem and if the planet is badly aspected it will only add to one’s problems. Hence it is always necessary to consult a gem therapist or a good astrologer before selecting a gem.

It is always advisable to wear the rings of different gems on different fingers. As a general rule, the ring finger is the best for wearing rings, but as each finger is related to a particular planet, the ring should be worn on the finger connected with the planet .This belief is quite popular and hence we see people wearing rings on many fingers. There is also distinction between the right and left hand: the right hand is solar and the left hand is lunar. If a person seeks balance in life then he has to wear a ring with the gem, related with the planets Sun, Mars, Saturn, Rahu and Ketu on the left hand(i.e solar gems on the lunar hand). The gems related with Moon, Mercury, Venus and Jupiter should be worn on the right hand. Hence wearing gems on the appropriate fingers, would bring good health, prosperity, name and fame, saves one from wild animals, accidents, evil effects of poison and negative effects of ill-aspected planets.

The gems work on the concept of colors and can be called as color therapy. The modern science has observed the significant influence of colors on the human body. The influence of blue and red color rays has been seen in governing the behavior of human body. Nearly 2000 years ago, color halls were made in many countries where patients used to take color bath for cure of their diseases. It has no doubt that the colors show a great influence on the system of human body. Presently it is known that a white light/sun light is composed of seven colors that can be seen with the help of a prism. The seven colors red, yellow, green, blue, violet, indigo and orange of different wavelength have different governance on the system of body. The significance of Gems and their color energy affecting the human system is
