Gemstones strengthen the role of planetary powers in your life and can boost your fortunes as they add cosmic colors to your Chakras and thus enhance their associated area of your life. Since time immemorial, gemstones have been used and thought to possess metaphysical powers. These stones have been revered and used for thousands of years throughout civilization, and though rare in occurrence, they're found almost throughout the world. Today, you can find a variety of gemstones across the globe/ Diamond, Ruby, Moonstone, Citrine, Alexandrite, Coral and Sapphire and the like are highly demanded for their superior qualities, properties and above all, benefits. Gemstones are profound and mystical healing tools that are being used all over the world from past few centuries across different cultures.

In Vedic astrology, gemstones are recommended based on one’s birth chart. However at Chakra Yog, we believe that. Gemstones are best recommended on basis of chakras that need to be enhanced in one’s life and when worn this way, they help in physical, mental and spiritual healing.

How Do Gems Work and Do They Influence Mind and Body?

The power of gemstones is exhibited by their cosmic colors that they possess. The working of the entire cosmic system is fueled by the light of sun planet whose highly powered rays super-charge the gemstones by passing through them. These rays filter through the gems and make them discharge copious amount of cosmic colour which can be used to vitalize the Chakra centres. Used as a ring, a bracelet or a pendant, a gemstone in contact with the skin lets the cosmic rays pass to your body. Through Chakras, the Gems affect the mind and the entire body. They can help awaken our awareness of the psychological, spiritual and emotional aspects of ourselves. Mostly they are polished with good cuts to enhance the reflection of light from them. What makes a gemstone distinct, fascinating, and exotic are the colors, quality and different types. The popular Gemstones with their chief properties for wearing are as below:

Ruby (Sun)
For name, fame, vigor, virtue, warmth and the power to command.

Gems work on the Chakras in the human body. They harness copious amount of cosmic colour into the chakras, thereby awakening them so that the individual lives to his full potential. As per astrology, they empower the particular planet that they represent. With chakra cleansing and empowerment, they cure various diseases and disorders caused due to chakra imbalance. We at Chakra Yog provide gemstones that are natural, untreated and vedic astrology approved.


The core strength of gemstones lies in their colors they emit. Sun rays passing through a gemstone make it emit a cosmic color that is absorbed by the Chakras. They are widely used to heal physical and emotional sufferings. What makes gemstones distinct, fascinating, and exotic are the colors, quality and their different types. The body needs all seven color rays: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet. Each color ray is associated with one or more chakras. By using the color ray that supports a particular chakra, you can speed the healing of the associated areas and organs.


The quality of gemstones depends on beauty, rarity, and durability. The beauty of a gem depends primarily on its optical properties, which impart its luster, fire, and color; the durability depends on hardness and resistance to fracture. The unit of weight used for gemstones is the metric carat; one carat equals 200 mg. Following is the list of the most popular and most precious, semi-precious and organic gems.

These natural gemstones are able to attract cosmic planetary rays that may boost physical, emotional, or spiritual health or attract positive influences toward you. A natural gemstone is formed by tectonic pressure within the earth over millions of years. On the other side, artificial or synthetic stones are manufactured within a short period of time and do not AT ALL have the competence to discharge cosmic radiation.

As per the Karma Purana, gemstones were created by seven different cosmic rays of light emanating from the seven major planets of solar system. As mentioned earlier, these rays were transmitted in the seven colors of the rainbow: Violet, Indigo, Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange and Red. These seven rays of light are responsible for all the cosmic creations in the cosmos, including the human body. Colors are the frequencies of light in different bands, and therefore they emit energy in different forms, which directly influences human body and consciousness. Gems work with both kinds of energy – physicochemical, i.e., electrochemical; and pranic, i.e., the vital life force; they are used as Jewelry or taken orally as pastes or oxides as Bhasma of the gems.
