Are gemstones beneficial
Jewelry and astrology answers
Today, we can carefully choose a suitable decoration for ourselves for a long time. And a few centuries ago, before the birth of a child, a special council met to determine which jewelry he should wear. Eastern sages usually decide on the year, month, day, and hour of birth. If, for example, this is the zodiac sign of the Lion of the year of the Mouse, then the recommended stone is a garnet; if the fixed star on the ninth day after birth is Altair, then the shape of the ring should be rectangular and necessarily with the image of a blooming lotus.
The origins of the belief that each month has its particular stone and that these stones have unique qualities or powers that they transmit to those born in this month date back to approximately the first century AD. As J. F. Kunz writes in his book "Interesting Information about Precious Stones":
"There is no doubt that the owner of a ring or jewelry with a stone related to the month of his birth is influenced by the idea that he owns something that is more closely related personality. However, another stone may look more beautiful and cost more. The idea that the stones corresponding to the month of birth have an indefinite, but real meaning, has existed for a long time and continues to possess the minds of those who are not devoid of the gift of imagination and romantic feelings."
The choice and time of wearing the stones connect with the planets, luminaries, and zodiac constellations. The most favorable for wearing stones associated with the world astrologically dominates a person's fate.
Sunstones: chrysolite, diamond, zircon, aventurine, ruby, chrysoprase.
Moonstones: opal, moonstone, aquamarine, beryl, pearl, coral.
Mercury stones: topaz, emerald, carnelian, agate.
Venus stones: light sapphire, agate, pearls.
Mars stones: ruby, bloodstone, jasper, diamond, garnet.
Jupiter stones: turquoise, sapphire, lapis lazuli.
Saturn stones: onyx, amethyst, topaz.
Neptune stones: amethyst, labrador, crystal.
Stones associated with the zodiacal constellations that dominated at the time of a person's birth are considered favorable for wearing. Conversely, the gemstones of the constellation opposite to the constellation of a person's birth are in dissonance with his nature and can harm his fate and life (see the table).
The constellation is the opposite constellation.
