Blue Sapphire : The Miraculous Gemstone
Blue Sapphire: An Introduction
I would like to dedicate this hub to those people who don't believe in Astrology. There are a few Talisman that have the power to make one believe in Astrology, no matter howsoever stubborn a person is. Blue Sapphire is one such Talisman. This gemstone shows its effect within the shortest span of time that is, it can show you miraculous results with 3 second or 3 minutes or maximum 1 day. But it is to be noted here that one should not wear it without the guidance of an expert Astrologer because if it suits you than undoubtedly it will bring wonderful results but if it doesn't suit you then the results will be too bad.
Who Should Wear Blue Sapphire
Often Blue Sapphire (Neelam) is recommended by astrologers to those natives who have a weak but friendly Saturn in their horoscope. It is the birthstone for Virgo sunsign (23 Aug-23 Sep). According to Vedic Astrology, Blue Sapphire is the rashi ratna for Capricorn (Makar) and Aquarius (Kumbh). Blue Sapphire strengthens Saturn (Shani) and hence helps gain prosperity in business, wealth, sharpness of the mind and self-confidence. Ascendants of Taurus, Libra, Gemini and Virgo can also wear the Blue Sapphire gemstone.
Wearing Blue Sapphire boosts up the positive traits of Saturn and give you unexpected gains in all walks of life. The effects of Blue Sapphire are so fast that it may start giving results within a time period of 3 seconds to 1 day.
But here it is imperative that before wearing, it should be tested under the guidance of an expert astrologer, whether it really suits you or not. If it doesn't suit you then it will bring you negative results with same intensity.
How to examine if Blue Sapphire suits you or not
So before wearing it, you should keep it with you for a maximum of 24 hours time for testing purposes. You can simply tie it on your arm or simply keep it below your pillow. If it suits you then it will start giving positive results instantly. You may experience a sudden flow of positive energy all through your spine and whole body. You will feel that all unseen blockages are opening up giving way to all that you had wished for. You may experience wonderful dreams. You may experience an elevated mood or you may hear some good news. All these things are signals that it suits you.
But if doesn't suit you then the results will be opposite. You may feel an irritating sensation. You may experience unpleasant dreams. Even you may feel a sort of drowsiness. During the testing phase one should stay at home and should not indulge in any physical activity like driving, playing, dancing or any other sort of activity that may lead to accidents.
Substitutes of Blue Sapphire
Those who can not buy a Blue Sapphire due to financial or some other reasons then they may try its substitutes as well. Substitutes will also give good results and they will definitely lead you to a financial position where you can afford the actual Blue Sapphire. Following are the four good substitutes of Blue Sapphire.

What type of Blue Sapphire you should wear
Blue Sapphires of dark colour including Bluish Purple Sapphires are called Indraneelam and are considered the most powerful. The weight of Blue Sapphire should be 1/12 carat for every 1 KG of body weight. For example If your body weight is 60 KG then you should wear a Blue Sapphire of 5 carat.
The procedure of wearing Blue Sapphire
Before wearing you should immerse it in a copper bowl in a mixture of curd, honey, milk, sugar and ghee for around 10 minutes. This will activate and cleanse you Blue Sapphire from impurities. After that it should be rinsed properly by rose water or Ganga Jal.
It should be worn on some Saturday of waning moon (Krishna Paksha) in the evening time before two hours of Sun set.
The right handed natives should wear it in the middle finger of their right hand. Those who are left handed should wear it in the middle finger of their left hand.
It should be worn in Silver or Platinum. Gold should be avoided.
How to purchase an authentic Blue Sapphire
It is always advisable to purchase a Blue Sapphire from a leading vendor who can give you proper "Certificate of Authenticity." Meanwhile there are some leading Vendors who give you a money back guarantee for any authenticity related issues. Usually the big and leading brands in the industry take proper care about the authenticity to maintain their reputation in the market.
There are a few fake vendors in the market who can give you the "Certificate of Authenticity" also even when it is not Authentic. This is because there are certain fake laboratories also who issue such false authentications. So take utmost care about authenticity while purchasing Blue Sapphire.
