Tips to choose the right gemstone
The success of a gemstone therapy depends on how properly and correctly it is implemented.
In astrology, there are nine planets and there is one gemstone for each of them. So, a gemstone should be worn under the planetary positions in your chart, which can be known after consulting an astrologer or according to your zodiac sign, i.e. birth sign.
When working with precious material, astrological gemstones do not have to be big to be effective. In many cases, 3.5 carat stone will produce many benefits if it possesses a high degree of flawlessness and an ideal saturation of color. Any stone below 3carat is too small to make skin contact and a big size stone is too bulky to handle.
Conversion of a carat of a ratti
1 Carat = 1.11 Ratti
1 Ratti = 0.90 Carat
Natural or Artificial
All colored stones are not astrological stones. Man-made stones may look the same or more attractive but they do not have an astrological significance or effect or powers. One should always go for a natural stone that can be assured by a certificate through reputed laboratories like GJEPC or GIA.
Your gemstone must be consecrated (Hindi: abhimantrit) in your name and birth nakshatra. It increases the blessings of the gem.
