Can treated Gemstones be used as per Indian Astrology or in healing?
How Many Treatments are applied on any Gemstone & which of them are allowed with respect to Astrology?
This question was first answered on Quora
Gemstones are treated to enhance their appearance and to hide flaws so that they look beautiful and attractive.
There are several treatments for Gemstone enhancement. I am mentioning some of them. It’s quite possible that some if these can be applied individually and some in combination.
I am mentioning some of the most common treatments. Those who have further interest in knowing their details can search with treatment name on Google.
There are easily searchable and tonnes of information are available on the treatment type.
Majority of Gemstones are treated and are mostly consumed for commercial grade Jewelry.
In Garuda Purana, Sri Sut Ji Goswami says in the Chapter 72,
“The Blue Sapphire subjected to heat or burning to improve color and clarity should never be used by anyone as illness and misfortune will fall on that individual who uses a heated and a burned gem.”
For Higher Goals, Life solutions and Astrology there is no space for treated gemstones as clearly stated in the reference quote above.
It is better not to wear any gemstone rather than a treated gemstone to get a placebo effect or no effect.
The only exception to this rule is of Emerald since the most common treatment for lack of more accurate terminology in English is called as Oil Treatment.
Minor or moderate amount of oil treatment in majority of Emeralds is accepted as Emerald is most likely to damage because of its unique chemical composition.
However filling up an Emerald with Green oil, polymers or resin is again for enhancing appearance (Make it appear better and different than what it actually was pre-treatment) and that is unacceptable for Astrology purposes. Read more about it here.
Faceting Features and procedures such as cutting, polishing etc are not considered as treatments. They are just faceting features to bring the best of colour, cut and clarity in a Gemstone without using techniques or chemicals to enhance appearance.
