Since ancient times India has been a source of gems and the knowledge of their uses. They were valued for healing, and for spiritual reasons. Their use as an ornament was of secondary importance. Gems were known to increase the flow of different energies. Individuals would use them both for their own personal uses, and in places where many could benefit from their energies, as in temples dedicated to God. Gems are the life force of the mineral kingdom. In the Vedic texts on astrology, there is information on how the different gems are actually storehouses of the different energies radiated to earth by the other planets in our solar system. They are the means of connection between the earth and the other stars and planets. They are connectors between the physical energies and the subtle ones. Therefore their usage harnesses specific energies to help in many ways to enhance the overall quality of life.
The human body is made out of five elements which have to remain in perfect harmony. This is where the Astro Sciences suggest remedial measures to overcome the deficiency in us with respect to the five elements, namely water, cosmic energy, fire, air, and earth. These elements are contained in our precious and semi-precious gems. Historically, there are numerous references to the use of gemstones by ancient kings to improve their fortunes. Even for winning wars, certain gemstones were recommended to the kings. In several ancient Hindu scriptures, a gemstone was said to yield huge amounts of gold per day. It implies that it brought forth immense good fortune. There are also references of gemstones in Vedas and ancient smruthis. The effect of gemstones on the micro-cosmic rays emanating from the heavenly bodies was discussed In Astodasa puranas. Buddha Bhattu has written treaties on testing quality and effectiveness of gemstones. The benefits and the malefic effects of gemstones have been vividly described. Gemstones are minerals which pass sparking or translucent attractive colors. These colors sparkle and appeal to the aesthetic sense of human beings. When the natal chart of an individual is analysed and subjected to microscopic examination, the particular weaknesses can be deciphered.
