    Anyone can wear Rose Quartz though it is most suitable for those with the zodiac signs of Taurus and Libra. However, It is advisable not to wear this gemstone along with the Planetary Gemstones or substitute stones of Jupiter, Sun, Mars, Rahu and Ketu.

    Dear Anamika,

    Your article on Gem stones is quite appreciable, but I have a doubt that only the particular has to be worn or whether keeping any article of the very same in ones pocket will yield the same result as that of stone
