As per Vedic Scriptures, Grahas are nine; Surya (Sun), Chandra (Moon), Mangal (Mars), Budh (Mercury), Guru (Jupiter), Shukra (Venus), Shani (Saturn), Rahu and Ketu. They are loosely translated as planets, but this is far from truth, as Sun is a star, not planet and Rahu & Ketu are only sensitive points, again not planets. There is no disagreement in the relationship of Gemstones to Grahas in the Vedic Astrology. The ‘Brihat Samhita’, the ‘Agni Purana’, the ‘Graha-Gocara Jyotisha’ and the ‘Garuda Purana’, are some of the Vedic scriptures dealing with planatary Gemology.
As we already know, according to Vedic astrology, nine main gemstones (Nav Ratna, also called sometimes Rashi Ratna) are associated with nine planets. Associated with the Lord Sun is the Astro Vedic Ruby (Manikya), with the Lord Moon is the Astro Vedic Pearl (Mukta, Moti), with Lord Mars is the Astro Vedic Coral (Praval, Moonga), with Lord Mercury is the Astro Vedic Emerald (Markat Mani, Panna), with Lord Jupiter is the Astro Vedic Yellow Sapphire (Pukhraj/ Pushparag), with Lord Venus is the Astro Vedic Diamond (Vajra, Heera), with Lord Saturn is the Astro Vedic Blue Sapphire (Neelam, Indraneel), with Lord Rahu is the Astro Vedic Hessonite (Gomed, Gomedha), and with Lord Ketu is the Astro Vedic Cat's eye (Vaidurya Mani, Vidalaksha, Lehsunia). Later on, some institutions like ‘AstroDevam.com’® have started to recommend some alternate Gemstones, on the basis of their extensive researches and empirical evidences. To know about them, one is requested to go through our section ‘Book your Gemstone’, where you can find list of gemstones.
Gemstones have always been perceived as harbingers of peace, prosperity and happiness. But, the Vedic scriptures and ancient Seers have clearly and in very unambiguous terms have discarded this generalization and have dictated that effect of a particular Gemstone, to a particular person, is totally dependant upon his Vedic Horoscope and planatary permutations and combinations lying within it and this effect is nothing to do with the basic character of that Gemstone.
Gemstone which is favorable to you as per your Vedic Horoscope, considered ANUKUL, will bring about name, fame, power to you and make your life blissful and comfortable. It will induce good energy in all spheres of human activity particularly health, career growth, prestige, happiness, including marital bliss, financial gains, business acumen and most important of all personal relations and long life and expel the negative energy that produces sickness and suffering. But if otherwise, i.e. in case of an unfavorable Gemstone, being worn by you, all types of calamities and misfortunes may knock your door.
Since, wearing the wrong gemstones could result into negative tendencies in the life; we never encourage our clients for self experimentation. At ‘AstroDevam.com’®, our team of astrologers takes special care that harmony in one aspect of life is not disturbed, while promoting any other aspect of life.
Otherwise also, going into intricacies of a Vedic Horoscope and after that recommending a remedial action like wearing a particular Gemstone is a very complicated, specialized and advanced procedure, to be handled only by expert and experienced astrologers. Team of astrologers, working under ‘AstroDevam.com’®, under the guidance of Ācharya Kalki Krishna, has proved their brilliance in this field. The testimonials received from our clients are proof of this fact.
Gemstones are beyond any doubt one of the most powerful devices used for Remedies in Astrology. Just as the use of right type of medicine can cure a patient, similarly the right choice of ‘Astro Vedic Gemstones’ can make life blissful and harmonious. Since, all the ‘Astro Vedic Gemstones’ work on the principle of absorption and transmission of some particular wavelengths which belong to some particular Graha or some specific area of life, they can be used in many ways:
When a Gemstone is worn, it goes on continuously vibrating its power which is absorbed in the individual aura. The protective aura thus becomes powerful to resist any untoward vibrations coming from external sources.
They can be made into jewelry pieces for our pleasure, enhancing our individual expression of beauty and sense of empowerment.
