Gemology - SCIENTIFIC BASIS OF WEARING GEMSTONES
 

Questions related to importance of gemstones and their effects on the well being of the wearers have always stirred the thoughts of human beings. Does the wearing of gemstones have any scientific basis or is it mere superstition?

There are great confusions prevalent in the world regarding many topics. Existence of ghosts, dead ancestors, influence of planets on human life and wearing of stones to do away with the fears of ghosts or adverse influence of the planets are some of the topics about which confusion reigns supreme. Of these topics, wearing of stones perhaps has the maximum confusion for it is directly related to increase in fortune. In the present materialistic society, everybody wants to reap maximum profits in minimum labour. Hence people are inspired to wear stones. But at this juncture, their ignorant but logical conscience puts a question: "Is it really fruitful to wear stones?" Most of them then begin to believe that stones and confusions related to them are means of livelihood for the astrologers and jewellers. If everything is possible by wearing a simple stone what is the use of action then, they ask. Gemmology is an important part of astrology and it has never been mentioned in it that one, who wants good fortune, should give up his efforts and come to depend upon the fortune entirely. In fact, both fate and action are two sides of the same coin and have their own importance. Neither of them is complete alone. Only working together action and fate can give synergic results. If only action were enough everybody, who works hard eight or ten hours a day, would be a millionaire. In reality, we see that most of the rich people do not work so hard; but they skilfully make the others to work for them. On the other hand, it is also seen that poor people or labourers work very hard from dawn to dusk but could earn their daily bread only with difficulty. Miraculous change is, however seen in the position of such poor people when they consult learned astrologers and begin to wear gem or stones prescribed by them. As soon as they wear stones, their fate takes the lead and raises them to the great heights wealthwise. There are also known incidents when some beggar finds a stone in the path and becomes the lord of many palace-like houses and inassessible wealth. Often some official who deserves promotion does not get it for many unknown reasons. Then he/she consults a gemologist. Gemologist prescribes him/her to wear a particular stone and the official makes unprecedented progress since then. Isn't it a miracle? There are scores of incidents to corroborate the miraculous property of gemstones, hence wearing of the stones cannot be rejected as mere superstition. Stones do have a capacity to remove the hurdles caused by faulty positioning of planets in one's horoscope. Negative influence of the gemstones also support their miraculous properties. Often a rich and well to do person wears just any stone out of curiosity or suggested by an imposter astrologer. Since the very moment such a person wears a stone, his fortune begins to wane. He loses his wealth and lives in a beggar like condition or faces other kinds of problems. Still some people may reject such incidents as mere coincidences. But when the sufferer removes the stone, he begins to regain his fortune. Thus on the basis of these and other related incidents, we can say that wearing of stones is not a superstition only. Besides unless and until you have tested a theory yourself, you should not reject it on the basis of rumours only.
HOW DO THE GEMSTONES EXERT THEIR EFFECTS?

We have so far clarified that every gemstone has some kind of miraculous powers which is often referred to as divine powers. According to its colour, every gem represents a planet of the matching colour. As for example, Venus has white colour hence it is represented by diamond. Red or pink ruby similarly represents the sun and yellow sapphire represents Jupiter.

Every gemstone has the power to draw energy or beams from its respective planet and channelise it into the wearer's body. This property of a gemstone is helpful in exerting its influence in miraculous ways.

Each gem of the Navratna category represents a planet of the solar system. When we wish to enjoy the favourable effects of a particular planet, we wear the stone representing that planet on our fingers, neck or arm. It is also important here to know that stone of a particular planet must be worn on the finger that represents it. In astrology, every finger is believed to represent a particular planet viz. Thumb represents Venus, index finger represents Jupiter, middle finger represents Saturn, ring finger represents the sun and little finger represents Mercury.

Suppose a particular planet is not strong enough in the horoscope of a person and a person was hence suggested to wear the stone that represents that planet. The stone draws positive energy from the planet and channelises it into the body of the wearer. The planet, since then, begins to bestow its good effect on the person who then climbs the ladder of success quickly, reaps great benefits and enjoys good food. Now even if the person doesn't make fervent efforts, the luck still gives him strong support.

Effects of the stones can be compared with the way modern medicine employs to remove the deficiency of vitamins in body. As for example green vegetables are prescribed to remove the deficiency of vitamin A and iron and basking is suggested to correct the disturbances in the level of vitamin D. Similarly stones are suggested to remove the deficiencies in the influence of particular planet.

People blinded by the dazzles of modernity do not reject the prescription of modern medicine. In fact they cannot do so. Thus, they have no moral right to reject the science that had helped since millenia, millions of people to live a healthy life and reap good fortune especially when they have not tested the validity of it themselves. It is possible that such people or their relatives might have worn some stone and did not receive expected results. Such cases are exceptional but not truth entirely. If you have worn a wrong stone at a wrong time for a wrong planet and could not get expected results or suffered adversely, you are prone to reject whole science of gemmology as mere superstition. But such petty instances are not enough to prove the whole science of gemmology wrong. Often people fail to get real gemstones or they get underweight gemstones which do not exert full influence. Such cases also cause suspicion to arise in people's mind.

You might have seen yourself that often after receiving treatment, condition of a patient continues to deteriorate. Sometimes, the patient dies despite receiving so called best treatment. Most of us blame fate for the patient's death. But think a little bit deeply and you will find many more reasons for death: failure of a doctor to diagnose the disease correctly, unavailability of the medicines prescribed by the doctor or if the medicines were available, these were not taken properly by the patient. For such happenings, nobody tries to prove the doctor or the whole medical science wrong because from the same medicines, millions of people get rid of the disease and regain their strength.

In support of the gemmology, there are many more instances in nature that can compel these ignorant people to change their opinion about the use and influence of the gemstones. It is a common experience that sea water remains calm during the day time but since evening high tides begin to appear in it and in full moon night these tides rise very high. Science says that it is the gravitational pull of the moon that causes these high tides to appear in the sea on full moon nights. In fact, gravitational pull of the moon is so strong that it draws even solid land surface up to one or two metres high.

Then there are people of lunatic nature whose mental derangement is at peak on the full moon nights. During the darker phase of the month, such people usually remain calm and peaceful. But as the full moon day approaches, such people lose control on the mind and become short tempered and violent. Ups and downs of mental condition of the lunatics continue in cycle according to the motion of the moon. Scientists here again blame the gravitational pull of the moon for the mental condition of the lunatics.

There are many more reasons behind the gemstones being effective to channelise the influence of a particular planet. Each of the nine planets represents many fields of activity, things and human conditions as well as diseases. Suppose a person is suffering from a disease which is proving incurable even to the best of the treatments. The person ultimately consults his astrologer. The astrologer studies the horoscope of the patient and finds out the planet responsible for the disease and prescribes him a particular gemstone. The patient follows the advice and wears the gemstone and his disease miraculously disappears within a few days.

Let us see now which planet governs which of the fields-
ZODIAC SIGN LORD FIELDS CONTROLLED BY LORD PLANET
LEO LORD Right eye, nervous system, heart diseases,Medicines, prestige, technology.
Cancer Moon Mind, water, cough, arts, silver, romance,`Water-borne diseases, feminity, left eye.
Aries/Scorpio Mars Blood, blood disorders, firework, army,land, credit, anger, copper, bile.
Gemini/Virgo Mercury Neuterity, singing, mathematics, Accounts, share market, brokerage,Bronze, disorders related to voice.
Sagittarius/Pisces Jupiter Son, spirituality, gold, politics, study of Vedas, teaching, writing, jaundice.
Taurus/Libra Venus Cotton, luxury, silver/platinum, poetry,Acting, dancing, venereal diseases and Physical strength.
Capricorn/ Aquarius Iron, indifferences, pettiness, technology, wind-borne diseases, service, forgery.
Rahu   Gambling, smuggling, Arabian countries,Drinking of wine, abdominal diseases,Anal disorders.
Ketu   Skin diseases, mica, ghosts, poltergeists,impracticality.

Now the question arises as to under which circumstances a gemstone should be worn and why?

Gemstones are so beautiful, so attractive that rich people begin to wear them just to show their wealth or just for the sake of hobby. This is totally different condition because hobby is invaluable and there is no prohibition on the ways to pursue one's hobbies. But ordinary people cannot squander money on mindless purchase of gemstones. They have to be very selective in the choice of gemstones. They should purchase only those gemstones that are prescribed by a learned gemologist. Only a learned astrologer can diagnose the necessity of a particular gemstone. Usually, a person requires to wear a particular gemstone when in his horoscope, some planet is suffering from the influence of some sinister planet or some particular provision is weak in the horoscope. Astrologers also caution that no gemstone should be taken for granted and worn just for fun or as a decorative piece. Such practice could lead to disastrous consequences. This condition is similar to cautious intake of medicines: when you take medicines without any reason, it may cause serious harm to you instead of benefiting you. Gemstones are nothing but medicines prescribed to correct the adverse influences of the planets.

IN WHICH CIRCUMSTANCES GEMSTONE SHOULD NOT BE WORN ?

When your astrologer forbids you from wearing a stone, you should follow his advice by all means. Secondly, if you are not having full faith in the gems and their powers, you should not go for them. This point is more psychological than astrological. We are all aware of the positive and negative thoughts and their consequences. Any of these two types of thoughts, when developed beyond a certain limit, comes to dominate the life of a person. If a person has more negative thoughts, his whole outlook for life becomes highly pessimistic. Such a condition is recognised as a mental disorder described as 'inferiority complex'. Similarly, if your whole thinking about the gemstones and their influence is negative and still you decide to wear the gemstone, the probability is that it will manifest more negative influences than positive. It is therefore highly imperative to cultivate positive attitude for the gemstones before deciding to wear one.

DWIJW, TIRTHE, MANTRE, AUSHADHE, BHESHAJE GURAU | YADRISHI BHAWANA YASYA TADRISHI PHALAM LABHET ||
That means, pilgrimage, Brahmin, mantra, gemstones, medicines and teacher give the same result as one has feelings about them.

Thirdly, if you are unable to get pure gemstone of the correct weight as prescribed by your astrologer, you should not go for just any substitute for the right kind of gemstone and avoid the trap of jewellers. Such a faulty substitute may cause serious harm no matter how beautiful and attractive it might appear. Besides, if a particular gemstone is specially forbidden for you, you should not wear it in any circumstance because such a gemstone may prove lethal for you. This fact particularly applies to diamond and blue sapphire. These two stones are particularly notorious for ruining the life of even a person of kingly status.

DIFFERENT BASIS OF WEARING GEMSTONE

Three questions are naturally linked with everything we do : Why? When? And How? These questions also arise in the case of gemstones. We have already discussed about the first two questions. Let us now consider the third question How? How should a gemstone be worn?

There is no single basis for wearing a gemstone. According to their experience and knowledge, experts express different opinions regarding wearing of stones. In different communities, there are different religious reasons for wearing the stones. Our learned sages and savants have proposed different provisions to wear a particular gemstone. Many of these provisions are universally accepted and there is no difference of opinion about them. Astrologers and experts from ancient as well as modern ages seem to have similar opinions about these provisions.


WEARING OF A STONE AS PER THE ASCENDANT HOUSE

Deep scrutiny of your horoscope may reveal more than one reason why you should wear a gemstone. But the most important and fool-proof reason is the position of ascendant house in your horoscope and position of its ruling planet. If the ruling planet of the ascendant house is in a weak position, the whole horoscope can be safely designated as weak. In such a horoscope, other planets too cannot show their full influence no matter how powerful they are.

The most important logic behind this provision is that, the ascendant house is the most important factor in one's horoscope. It actually represents the soul of the person in question. Its position is akin to that of heart. If the heart is weak, the whole body suffers from many kinds of ailments and other parts appear quite helpless.

If the ascendant house is weak in a horoscope, wearing of gemstones are related to planets other than the ruler of the ascendant house proves fruitless. All the experts therefore unanimously opine in favour of a strong ascendant house even if reaping of benefits from other well placed planets is desirable. Almost all the astrologers therefore suggest to wear the stone that is related to the ruling planet of the ascendant house. Let us see now which gem is related to which of the ascendant houses. In a horoscope, there are twelve houses that represent all the twelve zodiac signs. In the horoscope given here, fifth house is ascendant. It represents the zodiac sign Leo. In other words, in the given horoscope, Leo is the ascendant house. Sun is the lord of this house. We have already discussed that ruby is the stone for the Sun. Hence, the person who has Leo as his ascendant house in his horoscope must wear ruby.

Similarly, people with ascendant house Aries should wear coral, those with ascendant house Taurus should wear diamond, those with Gemini must wear emerald, those with Cancer must wear pearl, those with Leo should wear ruby, those with Virgo should wear emerald, those with Libra must wear diamond, those with Scorpio must wear coral, those with Sagittarius must wear topaz, those with Capricorn and Aquarius must wear blue sapphire and people with ascendant house Pisces must wear topaz.

Ascendant house Aries: Mars is the ruling planet of this house. It will be beneficial for the people with Aries as the ascendant house to wear coral but such people may also wear ruby, pearl or topaz and reap rich benefits. Such people may also go for the following combinations of the gemstones: coral, pearl and ruby; coral, ruby and topaz or coral, topaz and pearl. These combinations prove extremely beneficial for such people.

Ascendant house Taurus: Venus is the ruling planet of this house. It will be beneficial for the people with Taurus as their ascendant house to wear diamond. But such people may also wear blue sapphire for Saturn and emerald for Mercury. They may also go for the various combinations of these gemstones.

Ascendant house Gemini: Mercury is the ruling planet of this house. Hence the people who have Gemini as the ascendant house must wear emerald. They may also wear diamond or both of the gems together.

Ascendant house Cancer: Moon is the lord of this house. Hence the people with Cancer as the ascendant house must wear pearl. They may also wear coral. In the opinion of some experts, such people may also wear ruby and topaz.

Ascendant house Leo: Sun is the lord of this house. Hence, the people with Leo as the ascendant house must wear ruby. Besides it, they may also wear coral, pearl and topaz as well either alone or in combination. However, among these stones, coral will yield highest benefit while pearl and topaz may exert somewhat weaker influence.

Ascendant house Virgo: Mercury is the ruling planet of this house. Hence the people with Virgo as ascendant house must wear emerald. Some experts however believe that such people may also be benefited from pearl.

Ascendant house Libra: Venus is the ruling planet of this house. Hence the people with Libra as the ascendant house must wear diamond. Apart from it, they may also wear and reap benefits from blue sapphire and emerald.

Ascendant house Scorpio: Mars is the ruling planet of this house. Hence the people with Scorpio as the ascendant house must wear coral. They may also wear ruby, pearl and topaz.

Ascendant house Sagittarius: Jupiter is the ruling planet of this house. Hence the people with Sagittarius as the ascendant house must wear topaz. They may also wear ruby because the position of sun in their horoscope is usually strong.

Ascendant house Capricorn: Saturn is the ruling planet of this house. Hence the people with Capricorn as the ascendant house must wear blue sapphire. They may also wear diamond and pearl, if the position of moon is strong in their horoscope.

Ascendant house Aquarius: Saturn is the ruling planet of this house. Hence the people with Aquarius as the ascendant house must wear blue sapphire. They may also wear diamond.

Ascendant house Pisces: Jupiter is the ruling planet of this house. Hence the people with Pisces as the ascendant house must wear topaz. They may also wear pearl. Some experts suggest that such people may also wear ruby and emerald but the beneficial influence of these two gems is doubtful.

WHICH STONE IS FORBIDDEN FOR WHICH ASCENDANT HOUSE
People with a particular zodiac sign as ascendant house in their horoscope may wear different gemstones in combination, similarly there is a complete list of gemstones that are forbidden for the people with a particular ascendant house. Wearing of such stones may lead to relegation and the wearer may have to suffer serious losses instead of reaping rich benefits.

Aries: People with ascendant house Aries should not wear diamond and emerald. Many experts forbid even blue sapphire for these people. But they believe that if the position of Saturn is strong in horoscope, such people can safely wear blue sapphire.

Taurus: Due to mutual hostility between Venus, lord of Taurus, and Jupiter, topaz is forbidden for people with Taurus as the ascendant house. Some experts even forbid coral and ruby for such people.

Gemini: People with Gemini as the ascendant house must not wear coral, pearl, ruby and topaz. Some experts forbid even blue sapphire for such people but allow it in combination with emerald.

Cancer: People with Cancer as the ascendant house must not wear emerald, diamond and blue sapphire.

Leo: Diamond, blue sapphire and pearl are strictly forbidden for the people with Leo as the ascendant house.

Virgo: Coral, ruby and blue sapphire is forbidden for such people.

Libra: Wearing of ruby, coral and topaz may prove harmful for the people with Libra as the ascendant house. They may wear pearl only when suggested by some expert astrologer to channelise the influence of moon.

Scorpio: People with Scorpio as the ascendant house must not wear diamond, blue sapphire and emerald.

Sagittarius: Diamond, blue sapphire, pearl and emerald prove extremely harmful for the people with Sagittarius as the ascendant house.

Capricorn: Wearing ruby, pearl and topaz may prove to be torturous for the people with Capricorn as the ascendant house. Coral however proves beneficial.

Aquarius: Ruby, pearl, coral, emerald and topaz are particularly harmful for the people with Aquarius as the ascendant house.

Pisces: Ruby, emerald, diamond and blue sapphire are forbidden for the people with Pisces as the ascendant house.

RITUALS OF WEARING GEMSTONES
Ruby: This is a gemstone of the Sun. Hence it should be worn on Sunday. The time before 8 a.m. in the morning on any Sunday during the brighter phase is the most auspicious moment for wearing ruby. At this moment, ruby must be given a bath in Panchamrit or raw milk. Thereafter wash it with holy water. Now put it before the Sun yantra or the idol of your tutelary deity in the place of your worship. Carry out usual worship rituals and recite the hymn of Sun 7,000 or 108 times. Then with full faith and devotion, wear the ruby-containing ring on the ring finger of your right hand. Ruby is especially beneficial if worn in gold. Ruby remains effective for up to 4 years from the day of wearing it.

2) OM SURYAY NAMAH |

3) OM JAPAKUSUMASANKASHAM KASHPEYAM MAHADYUTIM TAMOARI SARV PAPADHNAM PRANATOASMI DIVAKARAM |

If a learned Brahmin carries out the whole ritual and he is given proper donations, the effect of the gem increases manifold due to the blessings of the Brahmin.

Pearl: Pearl is the gem for the Moon. Hence it should be worn on Monday. Full moon night on any Monday is the most auspicious day to wear pearl. Alternatively, Monday falling during brighter phase of the moon is also auspicious. Before wearing the pearl, give it a bath in Panchamrit (Milk, curd, ghee, sugar and honey) or raw milk. Then wash it with holy water and put it before the Moon yantra. In the absence of Moon yantra, place it before the idol of tutelary God in your place of worship. Offer then unbroken rice, sandal paste, incense sticks etc. and carry out usual worship rituals. Recite the hymn of Moon 11,000 times. If it is not possible, recite it 108 times. Then with full faith and devotion, wear pearl on the ring finger of your right hand. Pearl should be worn in silver for maximum benefits. Pearl remains effective for a period of 4 years from the day of wearing it.

Coral: This is the stone of Mars. Hence it should be worn on Tuesday. Select any Tuesday in the darker phase of the month. Time of 11 a.m. is the most auspicious moment for sanctifying this stone. First of all, wash it in 'Panchamrit' or raw milk and put it before Mangal Yantra or the idol of your tutelary deity or in the place of worship in your house. Now carry on as usual rituals of worship. If possible recite the hymn of Mars ten thousand times. If it is not possible, recite it one hundred and eight times. Then with devotional feelings, wear coral in the ring finger of your right hand.

If it is Mrigshira, Chitra, Dhanishta Nakshatras during that moment, wearing of coral gives specially beneficial results. Coral should be worn in copper or gold ring. It can also be worn in silver.

Emerald: It is the stone of Mercury. Hence it is worn on Wednesday. It should be worn in gold or silver but wearing of it in bronze or an alloy of two metals gives quick results. If it is worn during Ashlesha, Jyeshtha or Revati Nakshatras on Wednesday after proper worship at about 11 a.m., it proves specially beneficial. Emerald should be worn on the little finger of the right hand.

First of all give the emerald-bearing ring a bath in Panchamrit or raw milk and wash it with the holy water of the Ganges. Put it then before yantra or picture of Mercury or before the idol of deity at the place of worship. Worship the ring then properly.

Then recite the hymn of Mercury four thousand times or one hundred and eight times and ultimately wear the stone. Emerald remains effective for three years.
