    Regarding Gemstones-Quality, Price, Inclusions etc

    • Does shape of gem matter in terms of the results it gives?

      No the gem has to be Jyotish quality to give results. It can be any shape, the results will not vary if it is Jyotish Quality. Go for a shape and cut which appeals to you most.

    • Which is more effective a lower weight gemstone with a higher price per carat or a higher weight gem with a lower price per carat?
      A lower weight gemstone with a higher price per carat will be more effective as it will be better quality on all 4 C’s of cut, color, clarity and carat weight.

    • Does origin of the gem matter in terms of the results it gives?

      No the origin does not matter. What matters is that the gemstone has to be Jyotish Quality. If a Gem has qualified to be Jyotish Quality, it shall give results regardless of the origin. There is no truth in statements such as a Colombian Emerald will be more effective than a Zambian One. What matters is that the Gemstone is Jyotish Quality.

    • What is the difference between Jyotish gemstones and the gems generally available in the market?

      To identify a Jyotish Gemstone requires expertise, education and practice, which is not available in the market. Treated and heated gemstones are not Jyotish Gemstones, which is obvious, but there is no guarantee that even if the gem is untreated and natural it is Jyotish Quality. Only Jyotish Quality Gems give results. The links below shall explain in detail the value of this information.

      Dangerous, Incorrect Assumptions - A sure shot method for Gem therapy Failure

       

      Nowadays, 98% of the traditional market gemstones are subjected to treatments, which include color enhancing by heat, radiations or diffusion, dyeing and fracture filling for cosmetic improvement. Jyotish gemstones are of higher quality in all parameters than the gemstones that are available at the local jewellery store.

    • I just want to be sure that I am not using a pre used Gemstone?
      Sometimes with flawless processes such as the lifetime buyback guarantee and fantastic results comes a fertile imagination too. It is but a valid question. As per sacred tenets of Gemology a single consecrated gem can be used by a loved one or a blood relative. Once a Gem is sold and returned it is never listed back at Gemstoneuniverse online inventory of Jyotish Gemstones. Each single product that we ship out is digitally-catalogued. You can browse real time figures and statistics of more than a 1000 finished pieces on the Gemstoneuniverse blog. A returned gemstone will make it back to Gemstoneuniverse buying division to be sold for Jewellery or investment but it will NOT make it again to the Gemstoneuniverse online inventory. Note: As of 27th August 2012, our return rate is less than .5%. Individuals who have implemented the Gem therapy as per the process listed above and the guidelines given by Guruji Shrii Arnav have enjoyed the benefits and appreciated their gemstones. In majority of the refund cases we have seen that the individual has bought the gemstone but has not sought prior Vedic Recommendation from us which actually should be the first step towards choosing a Vedic Gemstone.

    • Do you sell Khooni Neelam/ Raktambar Neelam/ Tiger eye and other similar questions?
    • How do I know if there are any flaws in the gemstone?

      There is a lot of difference between flaws and inclusions. Inclusions are the birth marks of a Gemstone and often are the definitive markers whether a Gemstone has been treated or not. To be able to identify flaws or inclusions such as silk (a characteristic inclusion) in unheated sapphires you would need quality education, information, real time working and examination with numerous sample gemstones. In other words, you would have to be a gemmologist. From our side we can assure you as the Gold Standard in Planetary Gemology every single gemstone that makes it to the Gemstoneuniverse inventory is a Jyotish Quality Gemstone free from any flaws as listed in the sacred texts.

    • What the marks inside my gemstone?
      What you are referring to as marks are called as Inclusions in Gemology terms and indicates that the gem is free from any treatment that is done particularly to increase clarity. For example the common inclusions in Sapphires are: Silk - fine fibres of titanium dioxide (rutile) or other minerals that resemble the look of silk. Well-formed silk indicates that the sapphire underwent no heat-treatment and is of natural origin. Silk is a preferred inclusion in sapphires. Silk can be dissolved by heating. Needles - long, thin inclusions of either crystals, or tubes filled with gas or liquid (growth tubes) Feather-like inclusions also known as fractures or fissures Parting - breakage along a plane of weakness Twinning - two crystals grown out of one another or next to each other Just like some of the ones listed above, there are several other inclusions and require specialized information and education to identify.

    • What is the clarity Level of the Gem how do I know?

      The first basic thing is to use your eyes and view the picture and the video ( if any) with concentration. For our take on clarity levels and system please access the link below:

      http://www.gemstoneuniverse.com/gemstoneclarity.php

      If we follow GIA clarity grade system for colored gemstones each single piece of Gemstone from our online inventory at gemstoneuniverse.com would return from the LAB as IF, VVS or VS but we don't attach these grades to our gemstones for this system that does not carry a universal sanction.

    • I feel attracted to a particular gemstone (Emerald/ Sapphires/ etc) can I just purchase them without any consultation.
      Jyotish Gemstones are very powerful and have a profound impact on your body, mind and energy system. In our opinion, you should not wear a Jyotish Gemstone without a consultation. You may however wear ordinary gemstones available in the market sold as finished jewellery.

    • Do you think I can opt for a lesser priced gem which has 70% efficiency rather than buy a expensive gemstone?

    • What should be the budget of my gemstone?
      The first and foremost criteria are to ensure that the gemstone is astrologically flawless and has the energy to give potent results and solutions in life. Besides the conventional gemstone judging parameters of cut, color, clarity, lustre and carat weight you should first aim that your gemstone is astrologically appropriate as described in the sacred texts. All gemstones in the gemstone vault here at Gemstone Universe are first judged by their Astrological potency. You should buy the best quality that you can afford without any financial pressure.

    • What are gem treatments? Is it true that treated gemstones are ineffective?

      Treatments can be broadly classified as ethical treatments and non-ethical treatments. Treatments done to stabilize gem color such as heating without any elements is an ethical treatment provided it is disclosed at the time of the sale. This particular heat treatment is considered acceptable as it mimics a process that occurs in nature. As per the policy of ethical disclosure any treatment should be clearly explained to the customer before the closure of the sale.

      Treatments done to modify gemstone appearance to sell at a higher price is an unethical treatment. For examples Sapphires treated with Beryllium or Emeralds treated with Green dye and sold as untreated are unethical treatments. When the above conditions operate the gemstone is minimally effective and in some cases it is not effective at all. Natural, Untreated gemstones come at a premium price.

    • Are synthetic gemstones effective?

      In a single word, NO. They may be used for Jewellery and cosmetic purposes but they have no planetary value. As per the PGA code of ethics individuals dealing in synthetics are in the PGA off list. You can access this list here PGA OFF List.

    • I got my ring and observed it in Sunlight. I feel that there is crack in my gemstone?

      At the very outset we would like to clarify two things:

      1) Before the gem is set in a ring/ pendant it is sent for certification. If the gemstone has any crack the gemstone is not certified.

      2) After the gemstone is set it is sent for appraisal. If the gemstone has any damage or crack then it is not appraised.

      Blue Sapphire is made of Aluminium Oxide. What you are seeing and what is appearing to you as a crack is: Silk - three directional needles of rutile intersecting at 60° / 120°; Needles of boehmite intersecting at almost 90°; Needles of ilmenite etc and Parallel polysynthetic twin lamellae that give that optical phenomena that is appearing as a crack.

      Please understand that if there was a crack the gemstone would not have been certified or appraised.

      Please wear your gemstone with confidence.

      Your Gemstone ring/ Pendant goes through stringent Quality controls before it is shipped. Please do not get confused and take inclusions as cracks.
