How are gems formed?

It takes millions of years to form the gems which are nothing but crystals. There's a lots of action going on beneath the Earth such as heating, cooling, chemical reactions etc for millions of years and eventually gems are formed. Gem stone comes to Earth's surface after the occurrence of an earthquake or volcano. Some Numerologists say that each type of gem stone absorbs abundant energy from a particular planet and becomes fully charged with the energy of that particular planet. For example, Yellow sapphire is the energy reservoir of planet Jupiter. This gem stone can radiate the powers and qualities of Jupiter. However, there may not be much science in their concept. That said, gems do have some positive or negative impact on you if you wear it.

Types of gem stones

Gems are classified broadly by two categories. One is precious gem stones and the other is semi precious gem stones. For example, Yellow Sapphire, Blue Sapphire, Diamond, Ruby, Emerald are precious gems. Opal, Topaz, Garnet, Moonstone and Amber are semi precious gems.

Birth number and Life path number

As I said earlier some numerologists choose the gem stone related to the birth number of the customer. Some other numerologists choose the gen stone related to the life path number of the customer.

How to find the birth number and life path number of someone who was born on 16th November 1980?

Birth number is calculated by adding the digits of day of birth till you get a single digit number.

Here day of birth is 16.

1+6= 7 Related planet is Ketu. So the numerologist will recommend Catseye for this customer based on birth number.

Life path number is calculated by adding all the numbers of day of birth, month of birth and year of birth till you get a single digit number.

16-11-1980 (D-M-Y)

1+6+1+1+1+9+8+0=27

2+7=9

Related planet is Mars. So, he will suggest Coral.


How to choose the best gem stone?

I suggest you to study the horoscope before choosing the lucky gem stone. Everyone will have a most favorable planet in his/her horoscope. In other words, one of the 9 planets will give maximum benefits to you according to your time of birth. If Jupiter is the luckiest planet for you, then you may choose Yellow sapphire. If your life path number is also 3, then Yellow sapphire will bring you more luck for sure.

In short, the best way of choosing the lucky gem stone is to identify the most favorable planet in your horoscope and select the gem stone associated with that planet. This method will never fail.
