Many of my clients and readers ask me about the importance of quality of the gemstones they have been recommended to wear as well as the weights of these gemstones recommended for them. Gemstones are one of the most effective remedies offered by Vedic astrology and they are capable of bringing very strong and fast results. In some cases, the native wearing these gemstones can see visible changes in a matter of hours and days and this is the reason for which the use of gemstones as astrological remedies has increased over the past few years and more and more astrologers are now suggesting gemstones to their clients.
But knowing and wearing the suitable gemstones alone is not sufficient in most cases and the knowledge of proper suitable weights for these gemstones is also necessary as the suitable weights can vary from person to person depending on his horoscope. The quality of the gemstones plays a very important role when it comes to getting results from the gemstones as the gemstones with poor quality are not capable of producing the significant benefic effects in most cases. Hence due attention should be paid to the quality of the gemstones which are to be worn by a native who wishes to benefit by wearing these gemstones.
Discussing a few things about the weights of the gemstones as recommended by the astrologers versus the weights which are worn according to the discretion of the native or the gemstone vendor, it should be noted that the appropriate weight of a suitable gemstone is a very important criterion and it should not be ignored or overlooked. I have seen some clients not benefitting from their gemstones merely due to the fact that they chose to wear far less weights for their gemstones compared to the weights which were recommended to them by me or by other astrologers.
On the other hand, I have seen some people facing problems or even troubles only due to the fact that they had worn much heavier gemstones than they were recommended to wear. Gemstones are very much like medicines and we know that knowing the right medicine for a problem alone is not sufficient and we must also know the right time to take the medicine as well as the right dose and frequency of such medicine. For example, if a medicine like an injection of insulin has been prescribed to someone suffering from high blood sugar, knowing the insulin alone will not help this patient and he must know how many units of insulin should be injected and how many times a day.
If 10 units of insulin have been prescribed and three times a day is the frequency of these injections, then tempering with any of these two parameters can significantly change the results. For example, if the patient chooses to take 2 units of insulin with same frequency or he chooses to inject 10 units just once a day instead of doing it thrice a day, in both the cases, he is not likely to benefit much from the medicine as he is not taking it properly. On the other hand, if the patient decides to inject 20 or 30 units of insulin in a single go, this can cause problems for the native and instead of benefiting from the medicine, he may have to face more problems as injecting much more insulin than is required can cause his blood sugar levels to drop sharply which can cause problems.
Similarly, when some natives choose to wear gemstones much heavier than the ones recommended to them, the gemstones can start causing some side effects or problems for the native instead of giving benefits. To understand this concept better, it should be noted that many benefic planets are placed in such combinations in most horoscopes, that they can produce better results when a certain amount of extra energy is provided to these planets through their corresponding gemstones.
But if these positive planets are supplied with much more energy than is required by wearing much heavier gemstones, the same positive planets can start dominating the horoscope as well as the body and aura of the native wearing these gemstones and these extra strong planets then start interfering with the significances of some other planets in the horoscope which can vary from horoscope to horoscope.
Taking Vitamin or mineral supplements to fulfill a deficiency or to provide extra edge to the body is good but taking too much of the same vitamins or minerals will simply start causing problems and it is the same with everything else and gemstones too. Proper weight of a gemstone will provide the required strength to a benefic planet which is weak on one account or the other whereas a much heavier weight for the same gemstone can start causing problems for the native. Hence the weights of the gemstones should always be chosen according to the recommendation of your astrologer as he is the one who knows what weights are suitable for each one of the suitable gemstones.
Coming to the quality part of the gemstones, many natives buying their gemstones are presented with gemstones of very low price ranges and accordingly, of very low quality and some of these natives are tempted to buy cheaper gemstones in order to save money while thinking that such cheap gemstones will also produce the same effects as costly gemstones can. It should however be noted that the gemstones must possess a certain minimum efficiency to produce significant results and this is where the quality of the gemstones comes in picture.
The gemstones typically absorb the energy of their corresponding planets through their upper surfaces and then they transmit this energy into the body of the native wearing these gemstones, through their lower surfaces. For example, a Ruby will typically attract the energy of Sun from its upper surface and it will then transfer this energy into the body of the native wearing this gemstone, through its lower surface. During this process, the energy radiations of the planets travel from the upper surface of these gemstones to the lower surface of these gemstones and this is where the quality of the gemstones plays important role.
Gemstones can contain impurities which can be in many forms including linings, dots and clouds where clouds can form the worst kind of impurities and all these impurities block some parts of these gemstones. It means that when energy radiations enter these gemstones through the upper surfaces and they travel towards the lower surfaces of these gemstones, the impurities present inside these gemstones block the path of these energy radiations and they do not allow the energy radiations to pass through them. Hence these energy radiations can’t travel to the lower surfaces of the gemstones from where they are transmitted into the body of the native wearing these gemstones.
Hence the more impurities a gemstone has, the more energy radiations are blocked and the less effective is the gemstone and this is how the efficiency of a gemstone is measured. In my research and analysis with gemstones, I have observed that a gemstone should possess at least 40% efficiency in order to produce significant results for the native wearing such gemstone. It means that for a Yellow Sapphire to be 40% efficient, it should transmit at least 40 energy radiations of Jupiter into the body of the native wearing this gemstone, if 100 energy radiations are captured by the upper surface of this Yellow Sapphire.
Similarly, a yellow sapphire which transfers 60 energy radiations out of 100 energy radiations that fall on its upper surface is said to have an efficiency of 60% and this efficiency goes on increasing as the number of energy radiations transferred out of 100 captured radiations keeps increasing. The gemstones with excellent quality can have as high efficiency as 95% or even more, which means that they are capable of transferring all the energy of a planet, captured through their upper surface.
Apart from transferring a higher percentage of energy into the body of the wearer, the gemstones with higher qualities are capable of transmitting some energy radiations of their corresponding planets, which belong to a slightly different but finer wavelength, which can bring better results with fewer side effects whereas the gemstones with lower quality are not able to capture these energy wavelengths and hence they can’t transfer them.
Therefore, care should be taken when it comes to the quality of the gemstones as buying a cheap Ruby or Yellow Sapphire in order to save money can turn out to be a bad investment if such a Ruby or Yellow Sapphire is having an efficiency of 10% or even less, which means that practically you have not saved any money but you have wasted all the money that you have invested in this gemstone.-
Hence due attention should be paid to the quality of the gemstones that you are buying and gemstones below a certain quality should never be purchased as they can prove worthless in the end. It may be a good idea when you are trying to save money by purchasing a reasonably priced Yellow Sapphire with 50% efficiency compared to a very expensive Yellow Sapphire with 80% efficiency but it is always a bad idea to save more and choose a Yellow Sapphire with 10% efficiency just in order to save more money.
