Astrological Gem Therapies

by Thiruchelvam S.Nadarajah (PGA)

Jyotish is the vedic astrological system of which Ayurveda was once a part. Based on this astrological system, gem stones (navaratnas) are related to the nine planets (Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus,
Saturn, Rahu and Ketu) and produces a balancing effect against diseases.

The healing properties of the gems were studied by ancient ayurvedic  researchers and found that each different gem stones creates different colors and vibration and these effects the human body.

The planets were seen to have corresponding colors and vibrations too. The gem stones absorb and reflect (like a filter) the planetary rays or vibrations. These effect helps to restore the health.

In ancient Vedic texts, like the Brihat Samhita, the origin and healing powers of the various planets are discussed. Persons may use substitute stones (uparatnas) instead of the more expensive gem stones. For example, Jade, Peridot or Green Tourmaline can replace Emerald.

Healing properties of each gem stones based on ayurvedic are as listed below :

1. Ruby - Sun (Surya).
