Gemstones have been a centre of attraction for humans for centuries. But, are the physical attributes of these gemstones the only reason that people invest so much in them? The significance of gemstones goes beyond their external beauty and has a direct influence on our lives.

What are Gemstones and their benefits?

 Gemstone is the name given to a piece of mineral or rock that possesses positive cosmic energies that have the ability to enhance and enrich our external and internal environment. Gemstones are said to have multiple life-enriching benefits, a few of which are:

  1. Grant the blessings of the corresponding planetary Lord of the gemstone 2. Heal physical and mental illness 3. Relieve stress and grant inner peace 4. Restore balance in the body 5. Energize the body chakras 6. Impart strength, courage, and clarity of thoughts 7. Help gain stability on physical, mental, and intellectual fronts In spite of gemstones having such benefits, many people have a tough time believing in their effectiveness just because it falls under Alternative Sciences. Some sceptic people call the workings of a gemstone merely a placebo. Though in recent years the scientific reasoning behind the effects of donning gemstones has started being recognised.


Scientific and Vedic reasons for wearing Gemstones

The benefits of gemstones have been recorded ever since the Vedic Ages wherein Vedic Astrology, Gemstones have immense importance and proven to be a great remedy against the malefic effects of planets or the various Doshas in a person’s horoscope. According to the Vedas, it is known that if a planet has positive energy at the time of the birth of a person, then that planet proves to be beneficial for that person. However, if due to the planet’s placement or affliction, it becomes weak, then wearing a gemstone can be worn to make the planet’s affliction towards the person stronger according to his or her Horoscope, thereby having positive results in the person’s life.

Recently pioneers in this field have done exhibits where they have highlighted the scientific principles that can explain or the effects of gemstones on our mind, body and external environment. One of the prominent reasons for wearing a gemstone is that it receives cosmic energies through colour-coded frequencies better known as Colour Therapy, which seep into the body and cure the troubles around you through the cosmic rays & the positive energies of it. Modern Sciences believe that certain colours have amazing effects on our body (physically and mentally). Shades of green, red, blue, purple, and others can emit rays that control the behaviour and response of your body. This benefit stems from the fact that the sun is the source of all energy related to colour and lustre. Since gems have both these attributes, they respond positively to light. If you observe the sun’s rays through a prism, it will reflect a seven-colour spectrum with two invisible colours- ultraviolet and infrared. The nine colours together form the cosmic matrix that works as the essence of our solar system. All nine planets resonate with the energies of these colours.

The wavelength of coloured lights emanated from the planets matches the radiation from their corresponding gemstones. A gemstone absorbs these cosmic and solar energies when they pass through it and seep into the body. This invokes a positive response by restoring chakra balance and leading to an improvement in health conditions.

Apart from colour frequencies these healing rocks and crystals have their particular vibration and frequency, which arise from their molecular composition. From the way they move and interact, these vibrations and energies work in benefiting and uplifting our mood, mind, and health in a considerable manner, often in the way essential oils and aromatherapy work. Acting like a magnet, it can absorb the negative energies and welcome fresh vibes.

Since they are all naturally extracted, they harness the energies of the sun, moon, and oceans (all-natural healing energies) to improve our state. Used in a certain way, it can also improve your concentration and creativity. It can also promote physical, emotional and spiritual cleansing. Gemstones vibrate at the same pitch as humans and maximize the healing abilities we already have. Because of this comforting feeling, when you place a crystal on the body, it helps you connect better and feel at ease.

To conclude, Gemstones can be extremely effective considering the cosmic energy they possess and the positive effects of colours they behold. But, it’s also important to understand the requirement and relevance of each before actually wearing them or investing in them.
