Our great sages and polymaths perfected the
art and the science of astrology in ancient times. As such astrology has
witnessed continuous development and proliferated into many branches and
divisions, all of which are equal in importance. Gemology or the
scientific and ethnic study of gemstones is an important and integral part
of applied astrology. It is so popular among the Indian public that no one
is certain as to when it had actually come into practice. Use of precious
gems and stones has been an ancient practice in India. Some people believe
that it is one or two thousand years old science while others maintain
that science and art of gemology originated about five or ten thousand
years ago. Scriptural evidences however show that concept of gemology is
as old as the creation itself. A very famous hymn says:
SASHANKH CHAKRAM SAKIRIT KUNDALAM,
SAPEET VASTRAM SARASI RUNEKSHANAM ||
SAHAR VAKSH STHAL KAUSTUBHASHRIYAM, NAMAMI VISHNUM SIRASA CHATURBHUJAM ||
Apart from many kinds of weapons, Lord Vishnu
bears Kaustubha Mani (a gem named Kaustubh) on his chest. This gem is most
dear to Him. This hymn shows that even before the whole universe came into
being, Lord Vishnu did have an existence and the gem Kaustubh also existed
along with Him.
During medieval period also, various scholars
shed light on the science of gemology. They authored many great scriptures
as well. Acharya Varahmihir was the most prominent of those great
scholars. A scripture Vrihat Samhita written by Varahmihir still has a
wide recognition among the gemologists. It has a whole chapter, Ratnadhyay
devoted to the comprehensive description of the gemstones. Among Puranas,
Agnipurana contains exhaustive description about gemology.
In modern era also, countless scholars are
continuously working with dedication in the field of gemology. Thanks to
their efforts that the science of gemology is scaling new heights.

12) How can the gems and jewels be classified?
13) What is the total number of the gemstones and what are their names?
Let us first try to understand what a gem is.
We are all familiar with the adjective use of the words gem, jewel etc.
Any dear one or prominent one is addressed as a 'gem' or 'jewel' in
colloquial terms. Similarly anything that is rare in qualities,
availability or virtues is also referred to as a gem or jewel. But
literally, a gem is something that has been dug out from earth or deep sea
and has many rare but miraculous qualities. A gem is unique and often rare
because of its specific composition. It may differ in effects, colour,
tinge and hues. Similarly, prices of the same stone, may also vary with
slight difference in appearance.
All the gems and jewels however have one thing
in common i.e. their hue. A jewel has a distinct hue that differentiates
it from the rest of the commonly available materials. Our learned sages
have described eighty-four different kinds of gems and jewels among which
nine are most important. Because of it, titles like Navratna (nine most
precious gems) came into practice. But being superior in designation does
not mean that the remaining seventy-five gems are totally worthless or not
in common use. They too have their distinct appearance, beauty, hues and
effects and are important accordingly. Their uses are also wide and varied
such as personal beautification, adornment, house building, idol
construction, exhibition of wealth and luxury etc. Thus, there are totally
eighty-four gems and jewels of which nine are main (or more popular) and
seventy-five are less popular.
Though there are different classes and
categories of the gems that distinguish them from one another, but
gemstones belonging to the same category resemble one another to a great
extent with slight variations in hues and appearance.
Some of the stones have uniform colours like
yellow, green, red, blue, violet, black or golden while many have a mixed
hue of different colours. Each gem has its own importance. Regardless of
category, a gemstone is priced according to its beauty, brilliance,
appearance and purity. Lacking these qualities, a gemstone has no worth in
the eye of a connoisseur. Diamond, sapphire, topaz, emerald and ruby
belong to the category of most precious stones. All of them have their
distinct chemical composition and are priced accordingly.
Thus now we may say that-
1) Gemstones are harder than ordinary stones.
2) Gemstones are more brighter and smoother than ordinary stones.
3) Distinct hue is the main feature of a gemstone.
4) Usually, each gemstone radiates rays similar to its colour.
5) Radiation effect of the gemstones is controlled and affected by the
light and rays of the planets and group of stars situated in space.
6) Gemstones have both positive and negative capacities.
7) A particular gemstone prescribed for a particular planet receives the
rays from that planet and facilitates them to enter our body.
Gem-Therapy is a common branch of Astrology
and "Ayurveda" the oldest medical system of the world. Knowledge of
Astrology is essential for the medical practitioners of Ayurveda in India.
Now a days it is also a part of alternative therapy like telepathy, magnet
therapy, homeopathy, Electro homeopathy etc.
All the Ayurveda ancient texts have chapters
on gems and medicine derived from gems.
"Ras Ratna Samuchchaya" is the one of them,
which is about the chemistry of Ayurveda, written thousand years ago. Its
fourth chapter is about the quality, properties, selection, preparation of
medicine by gems and their application in various health troubles.
How Gems cure?
In all the branch or system of medical science
NATURE is the only original source of medicine. All the medicines derived
from plants, herbs, minerals, sea and all the natural sources.
Gems are mineral products (Pearl and Corel are
bio-product). They have not only some chemical properties but also some
energy. Because they are formed in the womb of mother earth. High magnetic
field, Electro-magnetic field and other energies are there due to high
revolutionary velocity of earth and resultant energy field of universe,
radiated from other planets and stars. These energies are stored as a
potential energy in the product of earth. Is man not using Coal, Petroleum
products for al his energy needs ? We are running in the era of atomic
energy. The source of atomic energy is Uranium, Thorium and other
radio-active elements. What is the source of these radio-active elements?
Only the mother earth.
What are Human being and other live?
A combine form of mater (The body) and energy
(The life). What else after the death? Only body. The life, the energy
leaves the body. From where live bodies received this energy, the life?
Modern science is still can't say about this. But the enceinte Indian
science Astrology believe that from The Universe we gain the Life, and
Life. When our energy weeks, we become sick
and go for medical aids. Medicine and treatment help us to cure. Modern
medical science is now taken the help of energy i.e., X-ray, ultra-violet,
infra-red, ultra-sound, laser rays, alpha, beta, gamma radio-active rays
Gems are also good conductors of cosmic
energy, they works as a receiver and transmit this energy in our body.
This energy helps us to prevent and cure from disease.
There are 9 planet in Vedic astrology, The
Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury, Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, Rahu and Ketu. Precious
and semi precious stones have power of good receiver of these planets
energy, i.e., Ruby of the Sun, pearl of the Moon, Red Coral of Mars,
Emerald of Mercury, Diamond of Venus, Yellow topaz of Jupiter, Blue
sapphire of Saturn, Gomed of Rahu and Cat's eye of Ketu.
Each planet signify a specific system / organ
of our body, as per horoscope of individual, and effect them.
Only a practitioner having sound knowledge of
Astrology, Medical astrology, Gems, Anatomy, Physiology may suggest the
correct gem for prevention and assist to cure disease.
After so many years of research in this field
I achieved great success to cure many disease. i.e. Cancer, Blood-cancer,
diabetes, liver-pancreas trouble, skin-disease and allergy, acne-pimples,
hyper and hypo thyroid, migraine, kidney stone, high/ low blood pressure,
arthritis, impotency, menstruation trouble, Harmon trouble etc.
If you are suffering from any diseases, you
may consult me for the Medical astrology and Gem-Therapy with required
Birth-Data and details of disease.
Every thing in this universe is composed of
Seven Rays of colour. We can see these rays in Rainbow. We can say
Meghadhanusha - VIBGYOR-rays. VIBGYOR RAYS means combination of VIOLET,
INDIGO, BLUE, GREEN, YELLOW, ORANGE & RED. Through a Prism one can find or
see these COSMIC rays. Ancient Indian text, the "KURMA PURANA", the seven
planets are to be seen as condensations of the seven cosmic rays. It was
understood that on our planet Earth the greatest condensation of the
cosmic rays is to be found in natural gem stones. Chart shows you the
