Vedic Appreciation of Gems
We are far more dependent on the cosmic pranaaround us and
its recipe of electro-magnetic rays with which our electrical
bodies need than we realize. Just as there are many essential
vitamins and minerals in food for excellent health and different
rays of color in health giving sunshine, so there are different
benign planetary radiations that we absorb and benefit by.
These radiations are a catalyst for programming the healthy "body/mind
electric" and when our chakra receptors are not able to
absorb these needed planetary "vitamins", the mind
and body will go further out of harmony and consequently malfunction
in relation to the lack of stimuli.
Certain Ayurvedic gems have a similar harmonic electro-magnetic
radiation to the planets and hence can, as "electro-magnetic
vitamin supplements," enhance our required dosage of this
beneficial and essential electro-magnetic planetary stimuli.
I use the words "vitamin supplements" to graphically
assist the reader to understand that when a planet is supposedly
taking an unfriendly interest in you, it is merely your inability
to digest or receive the planet's pranic radiation. Your receptivity
can be such that if it is placed in a negative transit, your
chakras' interpretation and receptivity of its energy can be
diluted or tainted. Hence the wearing of a gem will increase
the available dosage of a similar radiation acting like a needed
supplement to your electro-magnetic system. In order for the
subtle rays to be absorbed, the gems must have very good skin
contact. They also obviously have to be big enough to make
a difference and clean enough to act as effective transmitters
of the radiations that are naturally a part of their atomic
Though this idea seems quite radical to conventional thought,
only a little reflection will allow us to realize how greatly
we are influenced by the moon, sun spots and planets. Even
our environment can greatly affect our thoughts, uplifting
or depressing us, and yet are not the planets also tangibly
potent enough to be a pervasive background influence?
Only a little observation is needed to see how our friends
seem to be sharing a similar pattern reflected in the planetary
positions when one studies astrology! And hence we seem to
be playing with a double edged sword; on the one hand the planets
are dictating to us, such as when a friend inexplicably gets
cancer after having been living healthily for years. On the
other hand, we are advised correctly that we can overcome our
stars by wisdom and will power. Both perspectives have their
place in creation. To see life as a servant of truth rather
than an unwitting slave to its consequences is the much wiser
route. Even if beaten by karmic circumstances, one has only
lost when one has given up trying to overcome karmic weaknesses
that keep us from our higher nature.

It is easily apparent as one observes the development in the
conventional medical sciences that the future of medicine is
in the rays. Rays are any form of vibratory energy, from sound,
color, radiation etc., and can be of a harmful type or greatly
beneficial. Medicinal chemistry can only struggle to stimulate
the life-force back into the ailing patient. Rays can go much
deeper into the cell tissue and enhance the rejuvenating process.
Gems are but one of the methods of dispensing subtle yet benign
rays. Although the study of gems is many years ahead of the
conventional learning curve, they will eventually be treated
with respect when the hocus pocus side of the field is less
The body can be better understood as an electromagnetic system
- that is, an intelligently coordinated network of oscillating,
vibrating parts. A little discrimination may convince the reader
that assisting their electromagnetic signature, or way of being,
with the use of Chakra or Ayurvedic gems or metals would be
an intelligent and easy way of lessening the karmic weaknesses
in receptivity. As Swami Sri Yukteswar has suggested, plants,
metals and gems can all play a role as instruments to minimize
or nullify the adverse effects of our reactions to planetary
radiations. Of the three, he extolled quality gems of over
two carats as being the most effective. This, however, does
not negate the excellent strengthening benefits of pure gold,
silver and copper bangles. Of interest, Swami Sri Yukteswar
and Paramahansa Yogananda both wore nine-gem bangles or true
Chakra bangles as they have been called today.

Because there is tradtions of experience going back 5000 years
in what the best gemstones are for the most effective genuine
chakra crystal necklace or chakra healing bangle.
And because many individuals do not have the inclination or
finances to purchase a more powerfull chakra or navaratna bangle
some would like to cautiously investigate to see if the principle
is sound, based on their own experience. One way to do this
is to wear a high quality chakra (navaratna) necklace that
is designed and made by Astrogems that has over 20 exclusive
research and experience specifically with regard to chakra
healing or karmic mitigation jewelry.
Having made more nine-gem planetary bangles with gems of over
two carats than anyone else in the world, we wish to continue
our "quality at a great price" reputation. I have

I have always found that the quality, gem selection, and
design of these necklaces have been unacceptable representatives
of this wonderful science. It is because of this that the
world is not that impressed by them and they have not become
the necklace should be so powerful that the wearer should
actually feel calmer and stronger from receiving the interchange
of resonance with the gems. It is a great blessing to have
an opportunity for the electrical body to receive the supplement
of subtle energy from the gems. I have never seen a good
chakra necklace made with the understanding that you can
scrimp on bead size and save money.

is where the uncut material was faceted for the necklace.

so crucial for this subtle energy to make a difference.
It is crucial that this energy be available in a quantity
that can make a helpful shift. So many gem instruments
simply are too small and thus too subtle to make a difference.
years at Ayurvedic Astrological Jewelry, we have tailored
our gem instruments based on feedback and not necessarily
on what the many and often contradictory traditional suppositions
have related. It
is very necessary that each bead is over two carats. Most

Most I have seen are not of this nature. It is worth pointing
out here that I have never heard negative responses from
people wearing these inferior necklaces such as one would
presume from statements made by many gem purveyors who
have a self-interest in selling such astrological gems.
All that I have discovered is that the wearers dont
seem to have noticed an appreciable difference in their
life since they have been wearing them.

by no questions asked is that excuses are not requested.
ago I often made a sale of a chakra by selling a coral
necklace to a half skeptical customer who would be amazed
enough to want to investigate the process further. By rationalizing
that if they could have such a pleasant shift with a necklace
(alleviation of colds, lung congestion, feeling the cold
etc.), then wearing all nine gems would be considerably
obviously the selling of such necklaces could work against
me by taking business away from the nine-gem bangles, my
theory is that it will open more people up to the blessings
of an Electro magnetic instrument, just as the coral necklace
nine stones of the chakra necklace
stones on the chakra necklace are as follows: Hessonite
garnet, blue Iolite, Peridot, freshwater Pearl, Red Coral,
Silver Quartz Catseye, Almandine, Citrine and White Topaz.
brief explanation of how I have chosen the gems to replace
the primary planetary gems is as follows: The most powerful
gem in the mineral kingdom, based on my observation of
hundreds of clients, is the diamond, followed by the sapphires.
My conclusion leads me to suspect that the harder the gem,
the more lifeforce it emanates.
when one considers that the rishis recommended for the
most part the hardest gems of the mineral kingdom, it would
seem more than coincidental that this conclusion is correct.
The Diamond, the Ruby (which is a red Sapphire), the Blue
and Yellow Sapphire, Chrysoberyl Catseye and Emerald are
all in the top five percent of hardest gems in the mineral
kingdom. The Pearl and Coral are organic gem forms and
the Hessonite Garnet seems to be the exception to the hardness
next consideration is that it is of no benefit to wear
a ruby or blue sapphire if they are not eye clean at least,
and ideally loop clean. Hence I have had to reject, for
economic reasons, the rubbish material offered in India
for emerald, ruby, blue and yellow sapphire beads. In their
place I have selected from the rough uncut crystal material:
Blue Iolite for the Saturn influence. The gem is often
offered by less educated gem sellers as blue sapphire because
of its very similar appearance.
garnet is used in the place of ruby. This has a deep pigeon
blood red color, but is a thousandth the cost of natural
ruby of the same color and clarity. White Topaz is the
Venus substitute for the diamond. This is the hardest clear
material offered in beads of over two carats I could find,
and it is much harder than Quartz.
is the substitute for green emerald . Most emerald is oil
treated to hide the multi-fractured nature of this lower
grade bead material. Peridot is a great crystal but more
expensive than the other beads as a substitute. However
it is much better than eye clean . All the gems are eye
clean except some of the hessonites. Citrine is the substitute
for the Yellow sapphire gem, Silver quartz catseye replaces
the chrsoberyl catseye. All the other gems are the original
vs. Untested Book Knowledge
part of my research, I have had many friends in the neighborhood
test run these necklaces for detailed feedback. A very
high number insist on buying the one they borrowed. As
with all my gems I have first researched the response from
a large number of individuals to gauge if the books on
the subject are based on experience or hearsay.
so many books on the subject are a bit like these recipe
books that copy the recipe from one book to another and
don't really research the cooking part that deeply. Yet
when people read books they so often seem to think the
author is an authority, even though they have not sold
thousands of gemstones and spoken in depth with the follow-up
part of the process.
also encourage individuals to read this essay on how gems can influence
our lives, which is the most scientific study on the
matter that I have been able to compose. It is strictly
intended to avoid the blind faith so often associated with
this science. Because vedic astrology is such a profound
science and because of its relative ease in communicating
profound insights into a person's past and future, many
people develop an excessive respect for the astrologer's
between astrologers and gem dealers
people contact me via the web or phone and tell me that
a series of very good astrologers all gave them very different
gem recommendations. When they asked these astrologers
about my services, they were enthusiastically directed
to another gem dealer, but the individual was not told
that the gem dealer paid them secret commissions for their
referrals. This is so common that it is epidemic in my
view, in both India and America.
err is human, but this is another reason why I favor judicious,
economic rationale in acquiring as many of the different
benign electromagnetic radiations that different gems can
relay. The important thing is that the gem instrument is
balanced and powerful enough to make a difference. I achieved
this through years of research, balancing cost effectiveness
with the desired result.
I travel to different gem sources around the world, I also
acquire the most exclusive gems as well. But they simply
aren't always affordable for many; hence the Chakra necklace
is a balanced way to explore this arena.
