Gem Stones have a special significance in Vedic astrology. Since time immemorial gemstones have been used to liberate the problems caused by planets. In those days only the kings and influential people used to wear gemstones as recommended by their Astrologers and benefited by wearing suitable gemstones but now a day’s anyone can wear gemstones and get the benefits from the same.

Mr. Pankaj Khanna, MD & Founder at Gem Selections, told HerZindagi that gems have powers that affect wealth, physical health, and emotional well beings. Scriptural has also referred to as the “Garud Purana” and “Indra Purana” have pointed the usage of the 9 primary gems and their particular planetary rays based on their colour, carat, clarity, cutting and the qualities.


Every planet travel in its orbit. During its movement, it gives out powerful cosmic vibrations. The force of these vibrations varies from planet to planet. The radiating energies travel through the electromagnetic and heat fields surrounding the Earth’s atmosphere, in order to reach the human beings residing there. They are in the form of rays. These rays affect living beings negatively or positively. This means that planetary positions, as well as their interactions with one another, impact us throughout our lives.

Planets and Nakshatras are very powerful bodies in the Universe which are constantly transmitting their powerful energy on the Earth whereby effecting the lives of all the living organisms on Earth.

This is a constant process which is going on for millions of years and it regulates the entire life and fate of the living organisms including humans on earth. We may or may not understand it but this is a very potent force working on all of us all the time. Various people born in different months are strongly controlled by the particular planet which is guiding them.
