It is already October 2020 and the Coronavirus Pandemic has disrupted the colored Gemstone Industry and the supply chain also.
Contrarian trends have emerged and expected price trends and demand and supply equations have shown almost opposite trends as were expected.
Demand for fine Quality Gemstones at the apex of the Gem pyramid remains strong despite supply chain disruptions and disruption in mining operations.

However, once again Cash is King has been proven right and once again wealthy investors especially the Chinese have been at the forefront of investing in fine Colored gemstones that have consistently delivered higher value than stocks, real estate or traditional investment avenues like Gold or Silver.
Credit lines have nearly vanished, goods given on consignment are nearly non-existent as of today and only with deep pockets can reach near the source and get quantity and quality like previous years.
Moving on let us directly go on to discuss the position of Yellow Sapphire in 2020 and beyond and what are the options available as a Yellow Sapphire alternative?
What are the best Gemstones to use as alternative for Yellow Sapphire to harness the energy of Jupiter?
In the market specifically in India the following are sold as Yellow Sapphire alternatives/ Substitutes
1) Citrine also called as Sunhela is sold in North and western parts of India as a yellow Sapphire alternative. This beautiful stone often referred to as the Merchantâ€™s stone in the west as no energies of Jupiter and will give 0 results as a Jupiter Stone.
Ardent Gemstoneuniverse community members are well aware of this and this was discussed in detail on the Gemstoneuniverse Blog in Feb 2010. The same also holds true today and the article can be accessed by clicking here.
2) Yellow Topaz: if found natural and untreated and if of Jyotish Quality is rare to obtain and today is more expensive then entry level Yellow Sapphire. In terms of results an entry level Yellow Sapphire will deliver better results than a top quality Yellow Topaz.
Again one most get confused between Golden Topaz which is the misnomer for citrine and is an abundantly available cheap stone sold by certain elements as Yellow Topaz.
You may get some yellow topaz that qualifies as Jyotish Quality but only a handful. If you are doing quantities as large as Gemstoneuniverse it is virtually impossible to source such numbers.
3) Yellow Beryl/ Heliodor: For a period of 12 years from 2008 to beginning of 2020 Yellow Beryl or heliodor was a great alternative as a Jupiter Gemstone and delivered great results. However, this beautiful gemstone found fancy in the American and European markets in economical or new age jewellery and huge quantities are being sourced to be sold in these markets as Jewellery. The result is most of the Yellow Beryl is being treated at the rough stage itself and other treatment that are being employed to increase clarity and beauty is color stabilization and radiation. Treated Gemstones have no use in Astrology and should be discarded.
The Gemstoneuniverse Position
Our Heliodor inventory is nearly exhausted and we only have some samples that will be used for exhibition, research, display and training future students, Gemologists and interested patrons. Most of the Natural Heliodor that we have examined from Pakistan, Afghanistan and Brazil are either heavily included or having multiple color or unrealistic prices-basically non Jyotish quality.
The Way ahead- 2020 and beyond
The only alternative to a Yellow Sapphire is a Yellow Sapphire itself. Go for an entry level Jyotish Yellow Sapphire and let the magic enter your life.

|Comments||All that has been discussed above you can see it in action here. Patron has combined two smaller yellow Sapphires of Jyotish quality to achieve a combined weight of (4+) carats. A single yellow Sapphire of 4.622 carats of this color and clarity (Eye clean) would have easily costed $6000/INR 4,50,000/- approx in a B2B setting.
Seeing is believing and you just have to view the video to assess the 4Câ€™s of cut, color, clarity and carat weight. The magnificence of the radiant cut and the purity of colour in a unique design make it a talismanic ring per excellence.
A magical charm that will deliver life changing results only that only True Jyotish Gemstones can deliver.
