Ethical Principles in Vedic Gemology
Many people know the principle of Astrology, but what about Vedic Astrology? The principles of Vedic Astrology are the same as traditional astrology, but with a different belief that there are more planets and stars than we can see with our naked eye. These additional planets and stars act as powerful influences on our daily lives.
Vedic astrology on gemstones
Vedic gemology is based on the principle that certain gemstones can positively impact our lives when worn correctly. The placement of planets in our birth chart indicates the areas of life where we may need some help, and wearing the right gemstone can give us a boost in those areas.
Each planet has a positive or negative effect on us depending on its position in the zodiac at the time of birth. There are many levels of Vedic Astrology which will consider all of these factors to determine the best gemstone to use for each person's specific problem. It is essential to work with someone who has had training in this art because it could have an adverse effect if not correctly done.
Gemstones in Vedic astrology are based on planets.
There are nine major planets in Vedic astrology, and each one is associated with a different gemstone as follows:
- The Sun is associated with ruby
- Moon with pearl
- Mars with red coral
- Mercury with emerald
- Jupiter with yellow sapphire
- Venus with diamond
- Saturn with blue sapphire
- Rahu with hessonite garnet
- Ketu with cat's eye chrysoberyl
When choosing a gemstone, it's essential to consider what the planet it represents and your personal needs. For example, if you're looking for a stone that will bring you success in your career, you would want to choose one that corresponds to Jupiter. If you're dealing with health issues, choose a stone that represents the Sun or Moon.

Ethical Principles in Vedic Gemology
The principles of Vedic gemology are timeless and valid today as they were thousands of years ago when the ancient sages of India first conceived them. They believed that gems were divine gifts from the gods and that their value should be in their metaphysical properties and not just their monetary value.
In Vedic gemology, there are a set of ethical principles that govern the way we create and market our products; some of them are:
- Pressure-Free Sales Tactics
- Use only conflict-free stones
- We never artificially colour or modify any part of a stone
- We provide our customers with expert information on their gemstones so they can make informed decisions
- Accurate and Honest Gemstone Disclosures
- Respectful Care and Handling
Caring for Vedic gemstones
The Vedic gemstone must be treated with the utmost care. It is not enough to keep it away from physical contact; one must also keep it away from mental and emotional disturbance. The Vedic gemstone should never be subjected to sudden or loud noises, as this will create negative vibrations within the stone. Furthermore, the Vedic gemstone should not be exposed to extremes of hot or cold temperatures, as this will cause stress on the stone and may lead to breakage or fracturing.
It's also essential to have your birth chart examined by an experienced Vedic astrologer before wearing any gemstone. They can help you determine which stones are best suited for you and how to wear them correctly.
