Before wearing a gem one should have their Vedic horoscope checked by an expert astrologer to determine which planets are well-placed.

By Richard Shaw Brown,
Gemologist (GIA).

According to Vedic culture gems are believed to resonate with the same piezoelectric impulses as their ruling planets. Therefore we should only wear gems for planets which are well-placed or anukul in our Vedic horoscope.

Anukula means a planet that is beneficially disposed either by being strong in own sign, good house, ruler of houses which will bring positive results, or otherwise not malefically disposed nor inclined to produce evil influence. A planet which is good for the chart either naturally or by house rulership, yet somewhat weakened by placement may be strengthened through the gem, or a planet which already is strong and giving benefic influence may be further strengthened for gains in particular areas of life by wearing the gem.

Based on this simple premise we list below basic guidelines on how fine quality jyotish gems might influence us according to our horoscope.

1. Influence of Ruby/Red Spinel
If Sun is well placed in the horoscope:

The influence will be toward nobility, dignity, power, leadership, and confidence. One will be well-read, pious, strong, compassionate, and untroubled.

2. Influence of (natural) Pearl/Moonstone
If Moon is well placed in the horoscope:

The influence will be toward sensitivity, good habits, stability, and health. One will be wealthy, industrious, and respected.

3. Influence of Yellow Sapphire/Yellow Topaz
If Jupiter is well placed in the horoscope:

The influence will be toward humanitarianism, spiritualism, optimism, faith, and good judgement. One will be powerful, respected, and a leader of men, although susceptible to anger.

4. Influence of Hessonite/Orange Zircon
If Rahu is well placed in the horoscope:

The influence will be toward originality, inspiration, insight, and uniqueness. One will be exotic, wealthy and fortunate.

5. Influence of Emerald/Tsavorite
If Mercury is well placed in the horoscope:

The influence will be toward rationality, wit, skilfulness, and dexterity. One will be educated, happy, fortunate, and highly respected.

6. Influence of Diamond/Colorless Quartz
If Venus is well placed in the horoscope:

The influence will be toward attractiveness, grace, elegance, and longevity. One will be refined, humanitarian, and possess many positive qualities.

7. Influence of Chrysoberyl Cat's Eye/Fibrolite Cat's Eye
If Ketu is well placed in the horoscope:

The influence will be toward spiritualism, intuition, universality, subtleness, and sensitivity. One will be wealthy and protected from evil.

8. Influence of Blue Sapphire/Indicolite (Blue Tourmaline)
If Saturn is well placed in the horoscope:

The influence will be toward discipline, responsibility, realism, durability, and humility. One will be long-lived, charitable, proficient, and an affectionate mate.

9. Influence of Red Coral/Red Carnelian
If Mars is well placed in the horoscope:

The influence will be toward positive energy, strength, courage, passion, and aggression. One will be active, have great energy, be learned, well known and regal.

So before wearing a gem one should have their Vedic horoscope checked by an expert astrologer to determine which planets are well-placed.
