Has this to say about gemstone therapy: “Prescribing a gemstone to ward off any planetary afflictions in a birth chart of any person is a very delicate procedure. In order to prescribe any gem to any individual his or her birth chart should be thoroughly examined to see which of the malefic planets are in chidra bhavas or are functional malefics (malefics on account of the lordship of inauspicious house i.e., the 6th, 8th and 12th). If we will prescribe a stone for any of such planets, we will be only strengthening and accelerating their malefic tendencies. Therefore, the stones associated with the planets that are functional malefics for an individual should never be recommended.” Site also offers link to online gambling for those so predisposed. Site of American Institute of Vedic Studies offers Correspondence Course in Vedic Astrology. It describes the goal of the course thus: “The goal of the course is to provide the foundation to enable one to become a professional Vedic astrologer.

Overture (formerly GoTo) Wholistic dentistry site has this to say about using gems in the teeth: “The natural resonance properties of precious, semi-precious and rare earth gems such as rubies, diamonds and sapphires have been known in ancient cultures throughout the world. According to Tibetan tradition, gems placed in the teeth have been considered beneficial for the last 60,000 years. The Mayans, Incas and Aztecs are said to have practiced this method as well. Dr. Schuchard leads the developing field of gem therapy with the use of minute, geometrically cut gems precisely positioned discretely within the tooth's restoration material in alignment with body and tooth energetic meridian circuits. Ongoing clinical documentation is in place to substantiate findings that the use of gems in the teeth may additionally aid in reversing chronic conditions, restore qi and perhaps even increase longevity.” Site of Vedic Cultural Fellowship offers information on ayurvedic gemstone use in color vibrational therapy: “Gem Therapy for the Modern Age - The history of gemstone therapy dates back for thousands of years. It is known that the ancient Greeks, Egyptians, and Judaic cultures utilized gems for both healing and general enhancement of life, but it was the ancient Vedic culture of India that gave us the greatest inheritance of this knowledge. The metaphysical properties and how persons can increase their own well-being on the physical, emotional, and even spiritual planes through the proper use of gemstones is a science delineated in the Vedic scriptures to a far greater degree than the texts of any other ancient culture. The oldest of these is the "Vishnu Purana" which makes elaborate observations on the origin, power, and use of gems. Ayurvedic doctors, who were also generally astrologers as well, would prescribe them while using the astrological horoscope for diagnosis, and this is still going on today. Until recently little was known of gem therapy and the healing powers of gemstones in the west. In fact it was even thought of as quackery--- until the 20th century when due to the devoted work of Dr. Bhattacharya of Calcutta, India and his associates where ground-breaking work has been accomplished combining modern technology with this ancient healing art.”

Google:,1525,686,00.html “whole health md” site has this to say about gem therapy: “Crystal and gem therapy is the use of semiprecious and precious stones to enhance mental, spiritual, and physical healing. It is based on the belief that certain crystals and gems possess a powerful energy that can positively affect imbalances in human energy fields and thus promote health and well-being. Practitioners believe that some stones direct their energy toward emotional states, while others affect certain organs through contact with the body's related energy centers (known as meridians in traditional Chinese medicine and chakras in Indian Ayurveda).
“Although there is no formal scientific evidence to suggest that crystals or gemstones have any power whatsoever (in fact they produce no scientifically discernable energy), they have nevertheless been used for centuries by astrologers, diviners, priests, Buddhist monks, and others. Today the stones are employed not only by crystal and gemstone therapists, but also by some reflexologists, aromatherapists, kinesiologists, spiritual healers, and other alternative practitioners…” “woman nova” site has this to say about gem therapy: “Since ancient times, healers and medicine men have held that stones have psychic powers and energies and that they exert a great influence on all aspects of our lives. It is believed that stones are living entities, pulsating, radiating, vibrating at different rates; that they create strong energy fields which enable us to be charged with their energies; that they activate our abilities, soothe and comfort, heal and balance through the purity and directness of their beams.

”It is being increasingly accepted today that gems and crystals possess healing powers and that they speed up the healing processes of the body. The theoretical basis of gemstone therapy is that each precious stone has its own particular vibrational rate. The stones also emit the magnetic power of the ray of light contained within. By placing the stones within a person's aura, the vibrational rate of the person's aura changes for the better. Often, the effects are indirect but very potent. At other times, the effects are very direct. It is believed that the more precious stones you wear, the more strongly you will be charged with cosmic forces…” Site for “sigma logic international” offers this on gem therapy: “Gem Therapy is just a division of color therapy which is based on the fact that our body needs the seven primary colors of the solar spectrum to maintain health. A deficiency or excess of a particular color is the root cause of the diseases. Color Therapy mainly consists of drinking solarized color water, eating colored foods and meditating with colors to energize the charkas of our body which correspond to a particular color. Gems are also a source of cosmic rays in a more concentrated form. Each gem stone corresponds to a particular color. These colors also correspond to the color of the planets. For example, the sun corresponds the color - red and the color green corresponds to mercury. Suppose red rays are absent, diseases like anemia, physical debility and paralysis can occur. These diseases can be cured by injecting red rays in our body or by wearing the gems of the red planet. An excess of red rays can produce diseases such as boils, sunstroke, and tumors. These can be cured by injecting cold rays…”
