Light green or a dark green emerald as per rashi Astrology?
A question has been received this week from a Gemstoneuniverse patron that reads as:
Should I wear Dark Green Emerald since I am a Virgo because Light Green Emerald is for Gemini as per Astrology? I read it somewhere online.
Moving on the patron is an existing Gemstoneuniverse Patron and is already wearing a Gemstoneuniverse Emerald ring. He has got into confusion after reading
this junk information somewhere online which he refuses to cite.
First and foremost there is no standard text in Astrology, Gemstone Astrology or Gemology that makes the difference on degree of effectiveness of a
Gemstone variance by colour going by the one’s moon sign/Rashi.
This is again a gimmick to sell something in stock by inventing an imaginary astrological rule or to sound mysterious or special. Something similar to
recommending a Gemstone in milligrams like a medicine or by frequency. Read more about that here
Mercury is the planet that is the ruler of the moon signs of Gemini and Virgo and Emerald is his gem. All Gem quality and Jyotish Quality Emeralds are gems of mercury regardless whether they are light
green emeralds or dark green emeralds.
First and foremost you should understand the difference between a Stone and a Gemstone.
Then you should understand what exactly a Jyotish Quality Emerald is.
If you still an advanced user you go in for learning sacred shades of the Emeralds.
If you are clear about the above three points and if you are sure that your emerald is a true Jyotish Gemstone then you can either wear a light green emerald or a dark green emerald
whichever appeals to you as at a soul level.
Remember how for last 2 decades through the Blog Gemstoneuniverse has communicated that a Gem is for a Gem and that a Gem chooses a Gem.
The above information that Light Green Emerald is for Gemini sign and that dark Green Emerald is for Virgo or vice versa is a pile of junk information at best and should be discarded. It is best wasting your time and trying to impress on you an Astrological rule that does not yet exist.
The above is a similar example of scam that we covered many years back about the Colombian Emerald and the Zambian Emerald degree of effectiveness.
Why have people in India preferred darker shades in Emeralds?
People in many parts of India have shown a marked preference for Zambian Emerald over Colombian Emeralds for past many years citing the dark colour of
Zambian Emeralds as a preferred colour.
Though part of this information might be true, most of India had access to mostly Zambian Emeralds as these are more abundantly available, lesser priced
and most often then not, cut and polished in India.
Colombian Emeralds in comparison are rarer, beautiful, expensive and till today were available in Indian Markets with a very few Vendors. As the Indian
user has become more travel savvy and having access to the internet the consumer is now leaning towards procuring fine Colombian Emeralds for their sheer
What is Basra to Pearl, and Burma to Ruby is what Colombia is to Emerald
For example if we compare an emerald of Zambia and Colombia with near equivalent cut, color, clarity and carat weight the Colombian Emerald will be much
rarer and therefore much higher in price.
If your benchmark is Astrological Results then go for a Natural Emerald that is a true Jyotish Gemstone with a colour that appeals to you the most.
Light Green or Dark Green does not matter.
What matters is
The Emerald is a Jyotish Gemstone
The Emerald appeals to you at a soul level.
If these parameters are checked then you can wear an emerald of a shade of your preference whether you are a Gemini or a Virgo.
Same goes for all other Gemstones. The Gemstone should be a Jyotish Gemstone and should appeal to you. Light or Dark based on Rashi does NOT matter.
We are glad that the patron sent us this query. It is yet another example of how unorganized the field of Astrology and Gemstones is. For past 20 years
Gemstoneuniverse has worked assiduously to bring some kind of standardization in this field and we are continue with our mission of serving the sacred
science of planetary Gem therapy.
