    Comments Man’s eternal quest to improve his life leads him to explore several options. Life is about choosing the right options. The only difference between a lucky man and an unlucky one is that the lucky man finds himself in the right place at the right time (read opportunities) and makes the right choices.  The only factor common among them is hard work – Karma. 


    One of the ways man has explored, to tap the potential of the divine is by using Gemstones. These miracles of nature formed over thousands of years have been one of man’s best friends, philosophers and guides.

    The Indian system of Gem recommendation by Jyotish – the science of light has provided miraculous results to people since times immemorial. A Gem recommended on the principles of Vedic Astrology after an in-depth study of the horoscopes and the objectives of the individual is called a Jyotish Gem.

    Is that it-No!

    Recommendation of a Jyotish Gem is just one part. Selection of a Jyotish Gem is another part. When both recommendation and selection are perfect you get the promised power of a Gemstone.

    Before one tries to explore the meaning of a Jyotish Gemstone one should know what is a Gemstone.

    What is a Gemstone?

    A Gemstone is a fine precious or semi precious mineral that is fit to be used for adornment or for jewellery.  To be regarded as a Gemstone a mineral must be beautiful, rare, and durable.

    So what do we get out of this definition?

    A Gemstone is fine

    A Gemstone is beautiful.

    A Gemstone is rare.

    A Gemstone is durable.

    See the pictures below:


    Poor Quality Mineral Sold as Yellow Sapphire in the market for Astrological Purpose. It Fails all Parameters of being a Gemstone let alone being a Jyotish GemstonePoor Quality Mineral Sold as Yellow Sapphire in the market for Astrological Purpose. It Fails all Parameters of being a Gemstone let alone being a Jyotish Gemstone

    This mineral sample sold as Yellow Sapphire fails on every single parameter of being called as a Gemstone:

    -          It  is Not beautiful.

    It is not rare- This was white in color before being heated and diffused to give it Yellow color. Natural Yellow Sapphires are rare.

    This mineral is a true Gemstone. It qualifies on the definition of a Gemstone.

    It is beautiful

    It is Rare- Because it’s natural and unheated.

    It is Durable.

    So Before one selects a Jyotish Gemstone one should first find out a Gemstone.


    Why are Jyotish Gems Rare?

    A detailed article on what are Jyotish Gemstones can be found here.

    “Inward glowing lustre, transparency, illumination with rays, sparkle, free from impurities and good formation of the shape are the characteristics of good gems” -(Agni Purana, 246.13-14).

    A Jyotish Gem is rare because for every Gemstone the sacred texts specify that besides being a Gemstone, a Jyotish Gem should be treatment free and be free from certain flaws/ doshas to give desired results. Every single gem has a list of flaws that should be absolutely avoided. This knowledge is not common in the market place. One has to be an expert to select a Jyotish Gemstone.

    “If anyone wears a gem of many flaws even out of ignorance, then grief, anxiety, sickness, death, loss of wealth and other evils will torment him” – (Garuda Purana, 70.19).

    Only a true Jyotish Gem can harness the energies of the concerned planet and that translates in being in the right place at the right time.


    Featured today is a True Jyotish Gem. When we listed this divine gem on Gemstoneuniverse website we described it thus,
