Caring for your gemstones:

It's important to note that you don't need to have expensive or natural gemstones to benefit from their energy. Lab-created gems and even rhinestones can also be used when nothing else is available. They have lesser potency but it doesn't mean that they won't produce any effect at all. Ultimately, the most important thing is your intention and belief in the power of the gemstones.

Gemstones have been used for centuries in Vedic Tradition to bring balance to our lives and enhance our well-being. Here are some of the benefits associated with gemstones according to Vedic Astrology:
