Astrologers will suggest gemstones based on the 1st, 5th, 9th house lords from the ascendant, known as yoga karaka planets in the Janam kundali. When these places are not strong, our ability to think logically is influenced. The rays of the gemstones enable us to think properly by enhancing the strength of mind and soul. Gemstone should not be worn for 6th, 8th & 12th house (lord) planets.

What do people believe about gemstones

  • They diminish the past reactions of karma.
  • Protect against gloomy accidents and unfortunate events.
  • Minimize the influence of opposing planets and negative energies.
  • Improves blood circulation.
  • Minimizes stress and calms down the mind.
  • Minimizes nervousness and depressions.

But these may or may not be true for everyone. It is said that gemstone has some effects on people only when the sun rays reflecting/passing from the gemstone fall on the human body during work. But today many jobs are performed in closed rooms and offices and hence the effect of gemstone may not be relevant.

How to Wear Gemstones

Before wearing gemstones we should purify the mala of the gemstone. There are many methods to do it. The procedure should be easy to implement and support a happy life.

Prior to this process, the particular gemstone should be carried for 3 days and 3 nights to check for bad dreams and negative energies. If there are none, the below-mentioned procedure must be followed.

  • Step 1: Soak the mala for 24 hours in Coconut Water or Cow Milk or Gomutra (Shudhi process)
  • Step 2: Wash the mala and expose it to the sun’s rays for 12 hours (Full day).
  • Step 3: Expose the mala to the moon’s rays the same night for 12 hours (Entire night)
  • Step 4: Perform Archana and Rudrabhishekam to Lord Shiva at the temple.
  • Step 5: Donate the offering (Prashadam) to at least 11 pandits and/or 11 hungry people.
  • Step 6: Keep fast on the day you visit the temple, donate the food that you eat in a day to a needy, and sleep using a washed (clean) blanket on the ground.

From the next day, the mala can be used just as we use a ring.

Consider the gemstone as a sacred item (Just like a god) and make sure that you don’t carry it to inappropriate locations, and beware at times you’re wearing it as you have to maintain its sanctity. During ancient times, kings, scholars, and other people who wore gemstones treated them with the utmost sanctity. Removed them prior to sleep and kept them away while attending events like death, funeral, etc. The sanctity (pavitratha) of the gemstone containing mala or ring is always maintained. Today, it is impossible to follow these rules while carrying a gemstone.

Gemstone as discussed earlier has effects on our thoughts when we wear it while working and sun rays interacting with the gemstone are a must. But today, the white-collar jobs are performed in closed rooms and offices and hence the effect of gemstone may not be assessed.

We personally do not suggest you wear any gemstones. But, if you want to wear them, it’s your wish as it may work as stone therapy or fashion wear. The gemstone may have a negligible effect on your thoughts, but it can be well suited as a fashion accessory.
