Our body is composed of cosmic radiations and seven colors- violet, indigo, blue, green, yellow, orange and red - which become imbalanced in course of time. Astral gems are carefully selected for use to affect the body beneficially through their measured radiations.

Gems increase the psychic powers of an individual, in addition to warding off the ill-effects of planets, by their curative powers.

A gem should be set in the right metal and with right weight. It should be worn on the correct finger of the working hand on the right day. Each gem, with its constant source of a specific ray, gives rise to constructive vibrations that have therapeutic powers.

All stones or gems have magnetic powers in varying degrees, and many of them are beneficial to us for their therapeutic cures.
They emit vibrations and frequencies which have strong potential influence on our whole being.
They create strong energy fields which enable us to be charged with their energies.
The gems are used for healing, transforming, balancing, and attuning the body, mind and soul.
They are a manifestation of vibrancy, light and color, life, textures, transparency and clarity.
They activate our abilities, soothe and comfort, heal and balance through the purity of their rays.
The patterns in the stones reveal to us the changes that keep taking place, indicating that life is change - that the process of evolution is a cosmic law.
Each gem, tuned to a particular ray, has a special role to play.
The gems can be cleaned by leaving them under running water for six to eight hours. Or, bury them in some earth overnight, and rinse them off. Or, keep the stone in the flame of a candle till the candle melts. Or, else place the stone amongst a heap of quartz for several days, whereby its energy is revived from the contact of the quartz.
The gems that are cleaned should be placed in direct sunlight, because the sun is a great source of energy and purification.
The quartz crystal, a catalyst and conductor of energy, balances and harmonizes the aura.
As a force of light and energy, the quartz crystal protects against negative conditions in the aura of people of all ages, and cleanses the atmosphere of areas like our houses or work places.
The quartz crystal acts as a tranquilizer, and helps our intuitive insights by helping to see the light in the darkness.
The contact of the crystal quartz with the body helps in dissolving the blocks that stem the flow of energy in our body.
Certain stones represent certain beliefs, which are as follows :-
1. Crystal - light
2. Turquoise - infinity of sea and sky
3. Coral - life and form
4. Silver - the light of the moon
The more precious stones that you wear, the more strongly will you be charged with cosmic forces, radiating out into your surroundings.
Wear your stones - don't store them in a safe or a jewelry box, for you will be depriving your body of this tremendous power bestowed upon us.
Stones serve both ways, cut or uncut, in healing. A cut and polished garnet is more beneficial than an uncut one, while the amethyst serves best in its crystal form.
Precious stones have potent magical properties, but alternative stones can be replaced if the cost factor is the stumbling block. The following stones can replace the precious stones.
1. Crystal quartz for diamonds
2. Garnets for rubies
3. Turquoise for aquamarine
4. Lapis-lazuli for blue sapphire 5. Carnelian for fire opal
6. Malachite for emeralds
7. Azurite for indigo sapphire
The precious stones have a way of healing emotions that have been inharmonious.
The stones selected for use should always be in contact with one's body to absorb their healing properties.
