Effects on Human Body
Scientifically, Gemstones influence our mind, heart and the entire body as they work on different chakras. Gemstones can help awaken our awareness of the psychological, spiritual and emotional aspects of ourselves. There are many ways in which gemstones can be worn. They are worn as rings, bracelets, earrings, neck pieces and as amulets. Mostly they are polished with good cuts to enhance the reflection of light from them.
The core strength of gemstones lies in the colors they emit. Sun rays passing through a gemstone make it emit a cosmic color that is absorbed by the body Chakras. They are widely used to heal physical and emotional sufferings. What makes a gemstone distinct, fascinating, and exotic are its color, cut, transparency and vibrancy.
Characteristic properties of gemstones make them valuable, favorable and irreplaceable in the healing of diseases. The body needs all 7 color rays: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet. Each color ray is connected with one or more of the Chakras. Aura, the etheric body or bio-magnetic stratum, is a subtle energy field that encircles one’s physical body. With the color ray in favor of a particular chakra, you can quickly heal the associated areas and organs.

How do gemstones work?
Gems were said by the ancient rishis and seers to be able to avert negative influences of planets and to increase positive ones. The colours and vibrations of specific gemstones directly correspond to the colors and vibrations of different Chakras.
By wearing Gems touching the skin in particular fingers or as bracelets or pendants, we increase the transmission of cosmic colour rays radiated by the planets which are condensed by the gems and transmitted to the body thus empowering the specific Chakras in our ethereal body. Chakras are ruled by Gods and planets and once empowered; the individual imbibes the strength, courage, support, luck and the blessings from the divine energies to Achieve Success

Gemstones and planets
Gemstones and planets are interrelated. Vedic rishis and sages understood well the impact of planets on mind and the body. Stronger planets attracted positive energies whereas weaker planets attracted challenges and obstacles. Therefore, Jyotish Shastra (science of astrology) offered insight into studying planetary positions in your horoscope and recommended the use of powerful gemstones in order to enhance the power of benefic planets and minimize the effect of malefic planets.
Every gemstone is connected with a planet. A gemstone is worn on the body to strengthen its planet or minimize the malefic effect of the weaker planet. Let’s check out the nine planets and their gemstones.
Sun: Surya Graha represents the soul, his heat represents the vital energy (forces) and his seven horses represent the Seven Chakras of our body. When all of your chakras are charged up, you naturally tend to live positively. Ruby gemstone is connected with this planet. As all other planets derive their energies from Sun that is their leader in our solar system. Ruby helps the wearer focus and sustain their ability to command. It enhances leadership, independence and purity.
Moon: Chandra rules the mind. A Pearl gemstone increases the mental as well as emotional stability, sociability and contentment. A weaker Moon causes anxiety, mental and emotional swings, apprehensions, isolation or the incompetence to deal with relationships and people. Pearl makes the wearer gain control over their thoughts that sway away the mind.
Mercury: Buddha Planet controls the logical side of your mind. The Sanskrit word for ‘intelligence’ is ‘Buddhi’. Emerald gemstone strengthens your memory, communication skills and enhances mental control. A weaker Mercury planet causes mental dullness, immaturity or poor memory retention. More importantly a person with a weaker Mercury planet may tend to be affected by daydreaming, disquiet, fantasies or an unreasonable outlook on the world.
Mars: Called Mangal in Sanskrit, it is the most intense planet signifying red color and passion. Red Coral gemstone attracts the powers of Mars that kindles courage, energy, understanding and ability to win over enemies. A weak Mars planet is responsible for lack of motivation, lethargy, fear, indifference, or inability to control passions and/or temper. Red coral gemstone increases the benefic qualities of Mars.
Jupiter: Guru Planer is highly benefic planet in one’s horoscope. Yellow Sapphire attracts the qualities of this planet such as wisdom, judgment, compassion, enthusiasm and faith. When Jupiter is weak, we feel contracted, without purpose in life, moody, pessimistic or having guilt or self pity. Yellow Sapphire when worn on the body strengthens the position of Jupiter in your horoscope.
Venus: This is the only planet that offers luxury, pleasures, riches and opulence of the highest order. Diamond, one of the most popular gemstones, connected with artistic quality, grace, and charm.
Saturn: Shani is the planet of struggle, hardships and reward-less labor. It is considered as the greatest teachers for it teaches the person lessons of life. Blue Sapphire gemstone calms down the aggressive Saturn planet and makes the wearer tolerant as well as stable in all situations. A weak Saturn planet attracts diseases, vulnerability or endless anxieties, wasted efforts and financial hardships. However, it is a highly influential stone; one must wear it after a professional or expert consultation.
Rahu: To increase the powers of Rahu, a Hessonite Garnet gemstone holds the key. Planet Rahu signifies clarity, the ability to know one’s own mind and self. A poorly placed Rahu causes bizarre reactions, occult influences, dread, distress, addictive behavior, lack of sense of self, lack of regard for fellow beings. Hessonite Garnet is best when it comes to enhancing the powers of Rahu.
Ketu: To increase the power of Ketu, Cat's Eye is the gemstone. A weak Ketu causes doubt, ambiguity, and poor discrimination, lack of concentration or insight. Vedic rishis considered Ketu as the planet of spiritual awakening.
Vedic importance of gemstones: Quotes from Rig Veda
Of the seven important gemstones, each one for each planet, may the almighty lord bestow upon us the appropriate one out of the three ( the best, the good and the average) categories. Gemstones empower a person by their supernatural effects.
The native (who wears the gemstone) seeks planetary clemency and favour through prayers performed for him by learned brahmins, and through the use of gemstones.
May the Sun God, who controls our existence and prosperity in this universe, grant us the required funds. Since we offer prayers to 'Him', may he keep intact our savings meant for the purchase of gems.
Thus properly prescribed gemstone is capable of driving away the influence of witchcraft and will subdue my enemy.

Rudraksha Ratna Science Therapy
Neeta Singhal’s Rudraksha Ratna Science Therapy is believed to be a highly effective way to tap into the power of gemstones to change one’s life. And with good reason too! This unique therapy involves accurately recommending specific Rudraksha and gemstones for chakra balancing, transforming belief systems, dissolving chakra blockages, and opening doors to both personal and professional success. With hundreds of positive testimonials, reviews and feedback for this therapy, it is hard to ignore the fact that it truly does have the power to change lives.
“Planets put all of us into adverse situations so we can learn to face challenges, overcome them, and emerge as a stronger person. However, many of us are bound by fears that restrict our true potential. Rudraksha Ratna Science Therapy is the science of using specific Rudraksha and Ratna on a person so that 100% of their properties are utilized, and their powers can change emotions, fate, circumstances and path of the planets in the wearer’s favour”, states the expert Neeta Singhal.
For this task, specific Rudraksha and Gemstones are used based on the blocked chakras identified, the horoscope and the ultimate goals of the wearer. The wearing methodology is also very important, as the stringing method is critical too.
A typical session involves a one-on-one conversation with the client wherein problems are discussed, issues are diagnosed and blocked chakras are identified. Based on the existing problems and the desired outcome, gemstones and Rudraksha are expertly strung so the client can wear them as early as possible and positive results can be noticed in as less as a week’s time.
While many clients turn to Rudraksha Ratna Science Therapy to see success in their career, studies, inter-personal interactions and love life, an equal number of clients depend on RRST to find relief from health ailments. This therapy is believed to be a holistic cure for a wide variety of diseases, including, chronic headaches and backaches, digestive problems, allergies and skin problems, depression and insomnia and several kinds of psychiatric problems as well.
The reason Rudraksha Ratna Science Therapy is widely acclaimed are many is that it works on chakras, the very basis of life, and is a holistic therapy that heals from deep within with absolutely no side effects. What’s better, it is a one-time investment as the bracelets, rings and pendants containing Gems and Rudraksha are worn for life and continue to work their magic. In all earnestness, this holistic therapy costs just a fraction of what one ends up paying for traditional remedies, and is also a practical solution for those who don’t have the time to engage in meditation, yoga and yogic therapies every single day to balance their chakras. RRST maps your chakras to correct fingers and body positions. According to your specific concerns, you are recommended a RRST combionation in form of bracelet, ring or pendant which needs to be worn on a regular basis.
Besides planetary gemstones, bhasma made of the planetary herb is kept inside one tube and a metal that improves the planetary effects is kept in the other tube. Gemstone is then energized with a precise seed mantra on its particular day that enables it to eliminate all malefic effects of that particular planet and reinforce the benefic effects. The first century Greek metaphysical philosopher Agrippa describes: "When any star ascends fortunately we must take a stone and herb that is under that star, and make a ring of the metal that is suitable to this star, and in it fasten the stone, putting the herb or root under it, not omitting the inscriptions of images, names and characters”. The following table summarizes the precious gemstones with their connected planet, cosmic color, metal, Beej mantra and Bhasm.
|Gemstones||Planet||Cosmic Colour||Metal||Beeja Mantra||Bhasm|
|Blue Sapphire||Saturn||Indigo||Mercury||Om||Shamee Bhasm|
|Yellow Sapphire||Jupiter||Light Blue||Gold||Aim||Pippal Bhasm|
|Ruby, Yellow Topaz||Sun||Yellow||Tin||Hoom||Ark Bhasm|
