Gem Stone Therapy

The science of use of astrology gems and stones for medicinal and astrological purposes is known as Gem Stone Therapy . According to Varahamihir, the author of the classical text Brihat Samhita, a gem having a good luster, pure and clean color and no flaws ensures good luck and protection. He however warns that Gem stones with flaws can bring disaster.

There are two popular theories on the use of gems, astrology gems, as a therapeutic measure. The first, sanction by the Rig-Veda advises the use of seven gems to capture the visible spectrum in the rays of the sun. The second theory, though of unknown origin, is today more popular. It states that gems are cosmic filters that disallow particular vibrations from causing harm. We prefer to follow the traditional Vedic prescriptions for astrological Gem Therapy.

Astrological Gem Stone Therapy is prescribed on two bases – one long-tem and the other short-term. The gemstones used for the long-term (entire life) are known as Fortune Stones while those that are use for the shorter-term or temporary periods for providing relief during period of distress are known as Problem Area.

According to Vedic Astrology, gemstones can be classified into three types:

  • Panch Ratna (Five gems)
  • Sapta Ratna (Seven gems)
  • Nav Ratna (Nine gems)

Panch Ratna or Five Jewels

Vedic Astrology considers five elemental forms of existence. Each of these five elements have a gemstone associated with it.

These are:
