In Astrology, gem stones have a very important role to play as remedy for Planets. Gem Stones act like an allopathic medicine in solving the planet afflicted negative effects on one’s life. Gem Stone can be Precious, Semi Precious and Non Precious and can be worn according to one’s budget. They represent Planets and have to be worn only after consulting an Astrologer, as wrong gem stones can have adverse effect on one’s life. So here are some gem stones explained as under:
RUBY: The ruby to be worn should be at least 5.25 ratti in weight and should not have the inauspicious flaws. It should be got set in a gold mixed with copper in a Sunday, Monday or Thursday. This ring should be a touching ring so that the stone touches the skin. The ring should be worn as soon as possible after Sunrise on a Sunday of the bright half of the lunar month. It is very important for all gem stones that before wearing them they should be kept immersed for sometime in un-boiled milk or Ganges water. Afterwards the stones should be worshipped with flowers and incense, and the Mantras of the planets should be recited 108 times. The ting should be worn in the ring (third) finger. The Ruby is a very expensive gem stone and those who cannot afford to purchase a Ruby, can use any of the following substitutes-Red Spined, star Ruby, Pyrope Garnet, Red Zircon or Red Tourmaline.
Ruby or its substitutes should never be worn with Diamond, Blue Sapphire, Gomedha, and Cat Eye and their substitutes.
