OF LIGHT : VEDIC ASTROLOGY
To each of the planets is prescribed a particular gem-stone.
The Sun: Ruby The Moon: Pearl Mars: Red Coral Mercury: Emerald Jupiter: Yellow Sapphire Venus: Diamond Saturn: Blue Sapphire Rahu: Hessonite Garnet Ketu: Cat's Eye
Gem-stones are usually prescribed when a planet is weak in the chart
(by sign, house, or aspect) and particularly if it also rules auspicious
houses from the ascendant (like the first, fifth or ninth).
Ruby and yellow sapphire are usually set in gold. Pearl and red coral are usually set in silver.
Diamond is set in white gold (a combination of gold and silver). Emerald, blue sapphire can be
set in either gold or silver depending on whether we want to strengthen their
cleansing or nourishing effects.
