Gemology is the branch of science dealing with the study of natural and artificial gems and gemstones. It is considered as geo-science and a branch of mineralogy. Gems are precious stones which are loaded with specific energies. Gems may take in different colored rays and filter them all, but finally they keep a specific ray only. For example, Ruby is a gem in dark red color. This gem will filter all other colors except red, which is accumulated into it. When we wear ruby, we get the red colored rays being absorbed into our body, and hence the effect of these rays will produce certain results. It has been experimentally proved that red color increases will-power, anger, dynamism, blood flow, and hence the soul is subsequently strengthened. So, it is better if people with lack of confidence and with feelings of inferiority complex wear this gem. In that case, such people will have their confidence back.
All gems are connected to planets in Astrology. Of course, astrology advocates that everything in this world is connected to planets finally. What is the relation between gems and planets? Each planet has a type of energy which is fully absorbed in a particular gem on the earth. Thus Sun’s energy is absorbed in Ruby, Moon’s energy is available in pearl, Mars’s is in coral, Jupiter’s is in yellow sapphire, Saturn’s energy is seen is blue sapphire, Mercury’s is in emerald, Venus’s is in diamond, Rahu’s is in hessonite and Kethu’s is in Cat’s eye.
When there are any deficiencies in the energy levels of a Planet in a human being, the related problems concerned to that Planet will result. So it is wise to fill these deficient energies, by wearing gems. This is the route to achieve health, happiness and prosperity in life.
