In these days, recommendation of Gems & Stones are in vogue. No doubt, market force has necessitated astrologer to make prescription for gems and stones. Despite it, gems and stones have astrological values also and references can be found in Veda-Purana. In my experience, i have also found that gems & stones have astro-remedial value. These have been found bringing betterment in the life. How much betterment will come, it is dependant to the encryption of destiny, mirrored in true horoscope of a native.


Gemstones are supposed to have some latent power often called divine power. There are eighty-four gemstones. Nine of them are recognized as the main gems (Ratna or Mani), while the rest seventy-five gems come under the sub-gem (Upa Ratna) category. Upa-Ratnas also have power.
