Ayurvedic Healing Properties of Gemstones

    Healing Stones and Gems

    Healing energies are contained in gems and precious stones, which may be triggered by wearing them as jewelry, such as rings or necklaces, or by soaking them in water overnight and drinking the water the next day. 

    • They may be utilized to calm or activate certain organs in the body. 

    How to use a gemstone?

    Here are a few crucial basic considerations before we get into the impacts of individual gems and stones.

    How do you clean gemstones before wearing them?

    • Gems have a tendency to absorb their owner's traits and energy vibrations. 
    • Before utilizing any stone, it is a good idea to clean it. Soaking it in saltwater or milk for two days should suffice. The stone will not be harmed as a result of this.

    How to effectively wear a gemstone?

    • When wearing a gemstone, it should make contact with the skin through a small window in the setting, allowing the stone's delicate energies to interact directly with the body's energies.
    • It's crucial to wear the stone in the right place/finger or part of your body to see effects. 

    Which stone is for which finger?

    Here are a few suggestions: 

    • opal—ring finger 
    • yellow sapphire—index finger 
    • blue sapphire—middle finger 
    • diamond—ring finger 
    • pearl—little finger 
    • red coral—ring finger 
    • emerald—little finger 
    • opal—ring finger 
    • emerald—little finger

    Ayurveda suggests that rings be worn on the right hand, however in the West, if someone wishes to follow tradition and wear their wedding band on the left hand, that is ok.

    What to know before buying gems?

    • Stones that have been processed or chemically treated may not have the same therapeutic properties. 
    • It's ideal to get genuine, untreated, clean stones that don't have any flaws or cracks. 
    • If you're thinking about buying a stone, make sure to inspect it with a magnifying lens for cracks or blemishes.
    • If feasible, stones should be 3 to 5 karats, although a 1-karat diamond would suffice. A stone that is too tiny will have a little impact.
    • Consult an expert before purchasing a stone unless you are informed with both stones and Vedic astrology (jyotisha). 
    • A negative in sequence might occur if you choose the incorrect gem for you or wear it on the incorrect portion of your body.
