Gems – Remedies through gem therapy
Gems have wonderful power to mitigate the evil effects of planets and helps in curing diseases. But one has to choose correct gems in order to have benefits from them.
As our body is composed of cosmic radiations. Electronic radiations from other planets produce cellular change in human body. In order to bring balance in cosmic radiations and to reduce the evil effects of certain planets, astral gems are used.
Gems are carefully selected for use to affect body beneficially through other measured radiations.
Gems are classified in two types HOT and COLD. Ruby, red coral, diamond and cat’s eye are hot gems. Whereas pearl, topaz, blue sapphire and gomed are cold in nature.
It is good to wear combination of hot and cold gems to have balance in body or otherwise they may increase your health problems. One should wear gems only when they are required most or when they are indispensable. To achieve good results of the stones they should be worn in shukal paksh, on specified day and time.

General information about gems
It is definitely better to pay more for a flawless gem than a flawed one. If a gem has too many flaws, it should not be purchased at all. If a gem is cut properly, it will look good from any angle.
A gemstone’s color is a big factor in its price. Colored stones are usually more valuable than clear ones, except for diamonds. Some gems are fixed in their color. Ruby means red, and emerald means green. Sapphires can be any color but red, but blue sapphires are considered the most valuable. The rarity of a particular color of gemstone is an important factor in determining its price. A good colored gem should not be so pale that it is hard to see the color, or so dark that it appears black. A gem’s color should be uniform, not blotchy or stronger in one spot than another. Usually the brighter, more vivid and rich the color, the more valuable the gem.
Auspicious time to wear gem stones
If one wears gems to gain general good effects, they can be worn at any time, but in general the best times are in the morning (before noon) during Shukla Paksha (the bright half of the lunar month).
Installation of Gems
First wash the gem in water (if possible use the Ganges water).
Wash the gem in milk and then wash the gem again in water.
Place the gem on an altar or sacred place before a picture of the deity of the planet that is related to the gem being installed.
Incense should be offered and the mantras for the planet should be chanted.
The ring should be placed on the hand.
Which metal to use as ring
Rubies, yellow sapphires, red coral, and their substitutes should all be set in yellow gold. Diamonds, blue sapphires, emeralds, cat’s eyes, and hessonites can be set either in white or yellow metals, but usually the white metals (silver, platinum, and white gold) are better. Pearls should always be set in silver, because silver has a cooling effect, which is good for the mind, while gold has a heating effect. According to gemology and Indian astrology the metals ascribed to the planets are: gold for the Sun, silver for the Moon, brass for Mercury, silver for Venus, gold for Jupiter, and iron or steel for Saturn.
Finger To Wear On
It is best to wear primary gems as rings, so that the gem’s energy can be transmitted through the finger’s nerve. Each finger is governed by a specific planet, and is also related to certain parts of the body. Gemstones have more effect if they are worn on the proper fingers. If a particular gemstone is prescribed, and the planet that rules that gemstone is not related to a particular finger, then the gemstone should be worn on a finger ruled by a friend of that planet. The gem for one planet can be worn with the gem of another planet if the two planets are friendly. Cat’s eye and hessonite (gomed) should be worn on the middle finger, because the planets that rule these two gemstones, Ketu and Rahu, are Saturn’s friends, and Saturn controls the middle finger.
Jupiter controls the index finger (the finger next to the thumb). Yellow sapphire should be worn on this finger. Pearl, topaz, coral, and moonstone can also be worn on this finger. This finger relates to the stomach or respiratory system.
Saturn controls the middle finger. Blue sapphire, gomed, and cat’s eye should be worn on this finger. Sapphire, moonstone, and white pearl can also be worn on this finger. The middle finger relates to the brain, mind, intestines, and liver.
The Sun controls this finger. Ruby, pearl, moonstone, red coral, and yellow sapphire should be worn on this finger. This finger relates to the stomach, blood circulation, kidneys, and respiratory system. This finger is next to the little finger. The gems for the Moon and Mars are also worn on this finger, as both the Moon and Mars are friends with the Sun.
Mercury controls this finger. Wear emerald, green jade, diamond, and zircon on this finger. It relates to the legs, feet, and genitals.
