Please note that the gemstone prescription can be comprehensively done by taking a thorough evaluation of the individual’s horoscope, including signs on palm, numerological configuration and colour overload / deficiency exhibited by the client.
- In cases when the rashis / ascendant / horoscope are not known, the other determining factors like palm prints and colour analysis affinity yield the gem selection as may be required at that point
- Please also note that wearing gemstones only theoretical basis may not be prudent and may yield contrary results as well. For example, Leo ascendant should wear a ruby as per theory … however, if the person is suffering from high blood pressure or the root chakra is negatively overloaded, then it might be contrary for health. In such case, the root chakra & heart chakra has to be balanced before ruby could be worn.

Gems in detail
Benefits Of Ruby
Ruby is a form of Aluminium Oxide known as Corundum. Pure Corundum is in fact clear, and Red Corundum, or Ruby, is made up of Corundum (Al2O3), and Chromium impurities (Cr3+), which are responsible for its wonderful red coloration. Ruby is the most valuable gem in the Corundum family.
The name Corundum is believed to originate from either the Indian word kauruntaka, or the Sanskrit word kurivinda. Ruby, the name for this particular type of Corundum, is taken from the Latin word ruber, meaning “red“.
Since ancient times, the Ruby has been known as the King of gemstones, and has been considered to be a protective stone providing the wearer with benefits such as invulnerability and preserved health. In addition to this, Rubies inspire creativity, wisdom and love, as well as enhancing self-reliance / confidence and increasing spirituality. It was believed that Ruby worn by men signified manhood and nobility. Rubies worn by women was said to invoke passion and power. Improved blood circulation is one of the major perceived medical benefits of Ruby.
Availability and Sources of Ruby
The highest quality rubies, the most transparent with best color, usually come from Burma, and can actually be as valuable as diamond, or even more. The ruby is actually very closely related to the sapphire, both being part of the corundum family. They are both made of the same mineral, but they have of course, different colors. The ruby is a little softer than the sapphire, which may seem strange as they are both made of the same mineral.
Thanks to modern gemstone enhancement and treatment, it is now possible to own wonderful, heat-treated natural Rubies that are available to meet demand, and also priced at a level making this beautiful king of gemstones available to most people.
Although the finest rubies come from the Mogok region in Burma, many beautiful rubies also come from Thailand, the main source for rubies. Thai rubies tend to be a little darker in shade; with a red so deep they are almost violet. The island of ShriLanka, which is the “island of gems”, has also been long famous for its rubies, which are of a lighter shade. Marco Polo once said that no other place had rubies as beautiful as those from ShriLanka. Rubies also come from India, Tanzania, Madagascar, Russia, Cambodia, Kenya, Mexico, Afghanistan, and U.S.A (North Carolina) and Pakistan.
Treatment done on Ruby Gemstone
Treatments are carried out on gemstone to lighten or darken the color or to improve its clarity, transparency and quality, in order to fetch a better price for the stone in the market.
More than 90 per cent of the rubies found in the market today are treated to enhance their quality. However, it is ethically important for a dealer, while trading, to disclose the treatment done on the gemstone trading. The most common treatment to which rubies are subjected is the heat treatment in which the ruby roughs are heated at a particular temperature in a furnace to improve their color.
Another less acceptable treatment (of notorious reputation) is glass filling. This treatment involves the filling of fractures inside the ruby with so-called lead glass, which dramatically improves the transparency of the stone making a previously unsuited ruby fit for use in expensive ruby jewelry.

Benefits of Wearing Pearl Gemstone
Pearl Gemstone benefits
The English word ‘Pearl’ comes from Middle English and from old French ‘Perle’.
The Greek word is Margarites. In ancient times, these were considered holy pearl names and Mararita was often used for baby girls of the pious and for beautified saints in the Christian lands.
Female forms of Margarites=Pearl
Italian: Margherita and Rita
French: Marguerite and Margot
German: Margarethe, Gretchen and Gretal
English: Margaret, Marjorie, Madge and Margie
Men’s titles derived from Margarites=Pearl
Gareth and Garrett
Two patron saints who were rechristened as “pearls,” were:
St. Margaret Aethling of Scotland
Margeret, “the pearl of Bohemia,” beloved of the Danes.
A pearl is a hard,lustrous spherical mass,whiter or bluish grey,formed within the soft tissue (specifically the mantle) of a living oyster or bivalre mollusc. Just like the shell of a mollusk, a pearl is made up of calciumcarbonate in minute crystalline form, which has been deposited in concentric layers. The ideal pearl is perfectly rounded and smooth, but many other shapes of pearls occur. The finest quality natural pearls have been highly valued as gemstones and objects of beauty for many centuries, and because of this, the word pearl has become a metaphor for something very rare, fine, admirable, valuable or genuine.
Valuable pearls occur in the ocean, but they are now very rare. Cultured or farmed pearls from pearl oysters make up the majority of those that are currently sold in the international markets. Pearls from the sea are valued more highly than freshwater pearls. Imitation or fake pearls are also widely sold in inexpensive costume jewelry, but the quality of their iridescence is usually very poor and, generally speaking, artificial pearls are easily distinguished from genuine pearls. Pearls have been harvested and cultivated primarily for use in jewelry, but in the past they were also stitched onto formal or ornamental clothing worn on special occasions. Pearls have also been crushed and used in cosmetics, medicines, or in paint formulations.
Cultured Pearl is artificially created by planting a core or nucleus into pearl oysters. Today almost all pearls used for jewelery are cultured. They are usually harvested three years after planting, but it can take up to as long as six years before a pearl is produced. This process was first developed by KokichiMikimoto in Japan. He patented it in 1896.
The nucleus is generally a polished bead made from a missel shell. Along with a small scrap of mantle tissue from another oyester to serve as an irritant, it is surgically implanted near the oyester’s genitals. Oyesters that survive the subsequent surgery to remove the finished pearl are often implanted with a new, larger nucleus. They are then returned to water for another three years of growth.
Fresh Water Pearl is produced in fresh water (mainly in China). They are oblong and, due to lack of hardness, wear out very fast and lose their luster.
Pearl found in
The finest pearls are found in the Persian Gulf. Other notable sources of fine-quality pearls are the Gulf of Mannar between India and Sri Lanka, the waters off Celebes, Indonesia, and the islands of the South Pacific. In the Americas the Gulf of California, the Gulf of Mexico, and the waters of the Pacific coast of Mexico have yielded dark-hued pearls with a metallic sheen as well as white pearls of good quality.
Freshwater mussels in the temperate zone of the Northern Hemisphere have produced pearls of great value, as for example those from the Mississippi River. Pearling is a carefully fostered industry in central Europe, and the forest streams of Bavaria, in particular, are the source of choice pearls. Freshwater pearling in China has been known from before 1000 BC.
Recent Pearl Production
China has recently overtaken Japan in Akoya pearl production. Japan has all but ceased its production of Akoya pearls smaller than 8 mm. However, Japan maintains its status as a pearl processing center and imports the majority of Chinese Akoya pearl production. These pearls are then processed, often simply matched and sorted, relabeled as product of Japan and exported in the international markets.
In the past couple of decades, cultured pearls have been produced using larger oysters in the South Pacific and Indian Ocean. The largest pearl oyster is the Pinctada maxima, which is roughly the size of a dinner plate. South Sea pearls are characterized by their large size and warm luster. Sizes up to 14 mm in diameter are not uncommon. South Sea pearls are primarily produced in Australia, Indonesia and the Philippines.
A genuine pearl is supposed to have the following qualities:
• Moonlike, shining white color
• Perfectly round, globular shape and size
• Spotlessness and freedom from blemishes (dents, scratches, ridges) and impurities.
• Compactness, which gives it a high specific gravity.
• Lustre, soft glamor, attractiveness and brilliance of reflection
• Smoothness, which gives an agreeable sensation to the eyes.
One who wears or possesses a pearl with all of the above mentioned qualities enjoys good fortune and is blessed by the goddess Lakshmi (the goddess of prosperity), lives long and becomes sinless, and obtains vitality and intelligence. He achieves high position by his wisdom and becomes famous. A pearl with a yellow lustre brings prosperity. Red-tinted pearls make one intelligent, shining white pearls bring fame, and a pearl with a bluish hue brings good fortune. A pearl devoid of lustre, that is, dirty, broken, having no gleam of circulating water, black or copper colored, partly white and partly colored, irregular, odd in shape having holes, dents, or
sports is defective and should be avoided.

If pearls happen to come into contact with substances such as vinegar, fruit juices or detergents, immediately wipe that substance off.

Benefits of Wearing Yellow Sapphire
Scientifically, Yellow Sapphire is a mineral, with elements of aluminum, hydrosil, and florin in it. Australia, Burma, Brazil, Cambodia, East Africa, India (Himalayas), Sri Lanka, Thailand, United States, and Russia are the prominent sources of it. It is primarily found in yellow and different shades of yellow, besides in white and orange colors. It is considered as one of the most prominent and powerful stones in the astrology world. One of the reasons behind calling it so is because of its association with Jupiter.
The largest and heaviest planet of the planetary system, i.e. Jupiter, rules Yellow Sapphire or Pukhraj stone. Jupiter is a yellow colored planet, a ruler of north-east direction and a prime influencer on the day of Thursday. It is also known as ‘Guru’. Guru has been defined as the supreme and most apt term representing for a teacher. It is used so for Jupiter because it is believed to be the teacher of all Gods. It can also be stated as the minister of the nine planets. In astrology beliefs, there is no one close to Jupiter when it comes to the aspect of being intrinsically positive.
More often than not, it can be found residing in favorable positions. In such cases, it assists one’s growth on aspects of wisdom, wit, intellect, religion, and spirituality. One develops an individuality with which one strikes a positive influential mark on others. However, an exact opposite can occur in those very few cases when Jupiter gets positioned unfavorably. In either of these cases, Yellow Sapphire, which is the associated stone of this planet, can be strongly effective. In positive circumstances, the intensity of that positivity and favorable impacts can be further augmented to their extreme best, and in negative circumstances, no matter how intense the adverse impacts are, they can be nullified and eliminated with the help of this stone.
The astrological qualities and physical and metaphysical properties of this stone make it an apt choice for all. Besides positively governing and influencing the above stated aspects which are associated with planet Jupiter, it also makes an impact by bestowing one with all sorts of pleasures which one could possibly derive through materialistic things. It also confers one with the pleasure of having children, with physical strength and mental courage, healthiness, mental peace, food grains, prosperity, good luck, name, and fame. It also helps in pacifying one’s tendency to get angry and expanding one’s latitude of farsightedness. Wearing it also ensures protection from accidental death, and liberty from fears of ghosts and evil spirits.
Yellow Sapphire or Pukhraj stone is comprised of divine powers with which it can eliminate all causes which might be hindering one’s marriage prospective in any way. That is why, those (in specifically women) who are finding it too difficult to get married, with their marriageable age sliding back faster.

Never allow anyone to clean your opal in an ultrasonic cleaner, as the intense vibrations may cause cracking in a solid opal, and water penetration in a double or triple.
If your stone loses its shine or becomes scratched, bring it back to an opal cutter. After years of wear, small scratches and scuff marks cause an opal to lose its shiny polish and become dull looking. Professional polishing can bring new life to an opal which has become dull or scratched, and we can also check for claw damage and ensure the security of the setting.

For longer storage periods, place your opal in cotton wool with a few drops of water, then into a sealed plastic bag just to be safe. The water is not intended to soak into the stone (as opal is impervious) but will prevent water coming out of the stone if it is exposed to very low humidity environments (for example, zero humidity storage safes).

Rahu is regarded as similar to Saturn in its effect. Smoky blue is its colour. Instinctual and animalistic in nature, Rahu is interested only in achieving all that gives pleasure, and even if it achieves all it wants, it is never satisfied (which is true of our animalistic nature). Although Rahu rules no sign of the zodiac, the zodiacal sign Virgo is its sign. Virgo is in fact assigned to Mercury, but Rahu being akin to Saturn and Mercury being a friend of Saturn, Rahu thus has authority over Virgo. Friendly signs are Gemini, Virgo, Libra, Sagittarius, and Pisces. Cancer and Leo are its enemy signs. Mercury, Venus, and Saturn are friendly planets. Rahu is an enemy of Sun, Moon, and Mars. Rahu gives auspicious results in Taurus and Libra. Rahu is capable of giving power when rightly posited or exalted and it gives fame, success in politics, money, and physical beauty (i.e., attraction).
Rahu is most effective between forty-two and forty-eight years of age. Although it gives beneficial results while posited in the above-mentioned signs and houses, the gains obtained during its major period do not last long and one always feels anxious and dissatisfied, even if one gets everything one desires. Rahu creates physical and mental illnesses that cannot be diagnosed and cured easily. It produces suicidal tendencies, fears, phobias, poisonous bites, murder, theft, imprisonment, and diseases like cholera, dysentery, skin diseases, swelling of the uterus, and constipation.
