According to the book- The Healing Power of Gemstones- in Tantra Sara, a major tantrik scripture, the human body is stated to be an island of nine gems. These nine gems known as nav-ratnas correspond with the nine dhatus (ingredients) of which the human body is composed.
The Puranas also beautifully present many stories about the origins of gems and their relationship with the nine planets. These nav-ratnas are divided into two groups- Precious and Semi-precious.
The precious gems category include- Diamond, pearl, Ruby, Blue-Sapphire and Emerald whereas hessonite, yellow sapphire, cat’s eye and coral are semi-precious gems. Fascinatingly the gems are neither categorized on their market value of the gems nor on their physical brilliance, luster or durability rather on their utility and their influence on the human psyche, body, chemistry and the electromagnetic field.
Even the western astrology has strong beliefs on these birth stones. If we dig in a little deeper, we get to know- first century Jewish historian Josephus proclaimed a connection between the twelve stones in Aaron’s breastplate, the twelve months of the year, and the twelve signs of the zodiac.
Based on these specifications, each of us has a distinct birth stone. A birthstone is basically a gemstone that symbolizes a month of birth, sometimes they even depend on the time & date of the birth. They are often used in personal jewelry like rings or pendants. Wearing a single birthstone is only a few centuries old, although modern authorities differ on dates: Kunz places the custom in eighteenth century Poland, while the Gemological Institute of America starts it in Germany in the 1560s.
Each stone has its own distinct feature and helps you control a different power. Where Right hand is for the solar remedies, the left hand is for the effects the lunar energies. Proper channelization of these energies helps one to attain a better control over his/her life and
It is always advisable to wear the rings of different gems on different fingers. As a general rule, the ring finger is the best for wearing rings, but as each finger is related to a particular planet, the ring should be worn on the finger connected with the planet.
