Frequently Asked Questions
by Jack Hauck
Q. WHY DO PEOPLE WEAR GEMSTONES?
The ancient sages of India discovered that there are ways to counter the harmful effects of the stars. They believed that the best remedial agents, better than herbs, and even better than metals, are flawless (or as flawless as possible) gemstones of not less than 2 carats.
Q. WHICH GEMSTONES ARE BEST FOR ME?
Substitutes, or secondary stones, may be used for any of these due to its expense or lack of availability. Vedic Astrologers are able to recommend gemstones after reading an individual's horoscope. We are able to supply the names of Vedic Astrologers for anyone wishing to follow this route.
Q. HOW MUCH DO I HAVE TO SPEND?
For this reason we recommend that one acquire gemstones only when one is able to afford a stone of good or excellent quality.
Q. ARE SYNTHETIC GEMSTONES EQUAL TO NATURAL GEMSTONES?
The principal idea behind astrological gemstones is that their vibration is what helps us. The vibration is created by its chemical composition, its clarity, its cut, and just as important, the vibration from the earth it absorbed when it was created millions of years ago. This most important element is something that can not be created or duplicated in the laboratory.
For that reason we feel that although synthetic gems are an inexpensive substitute, we encourage the use of natural gemstones in Vedic astrology.
Q. DO I WEAR THE STONES ALL THE TIME?
It is good if one can wear one's gemstones as much as possible, but we feel one should be practical. Be prepared to take off metal jewelry when passing through an airport sensor, having an x-ray taken, or swimming in the ocean! We also suggest that one refrain from wearing your gemstones if there is a concern for security.
Q. WHY DO GEMSTONES NEED TO BE A CERTAIN WEIGHT?
