Astrological Gemstones Benefits

 

Emerald Gemstone for Jyotish and Vedic Astrology

Emerald is the astrological, precious gemstone related to Mercury, which is the planet of intelligence, speech, communication, trade and commerce. It improves learning abilities, communication and clairvoyance and it is beneficial to the nervous system. Wearing an emerald of at least 1.5 carat is said to give good results in all the business and trade activities. It is ideal for people working with computers. It makes the wearer more focus in completing many tasks at once. And it will also make the wearer a very persuasive speaker. Emerald can be substituted with peridot, green tourmaline, or chrysoprase of at least 3 carats.

Quick facts

Viewing emeralds the correct way.
1- We have been asked many times how to view correctly emeralds.  In a gem box, an emerald will never display its full potential look. The pic above shows the right way to view an emerald, and see its closest, natural appearance once the stone will be set in a ring or a pendant. Just hold it in between your finger as shown. Having an incandescent light source on in the room, will help also to see the color and brilliance in indoor environment.

2- Colombian emeralds will flourish when set in high karat yellow gold (As a matter of fact, in Colombia, goldsmiths will refuse to set any emerald in white gold.). In 18K high carat gold, emeralds will just beautify their appearance tenfold. No other colored stone will flourish so much, when set in a high karat yellow gold setting like an emerald does.


Emerald Jewelry Care
1- DO NOT USE ANY ULTRASONIC CLEANER OR STEAMER when you set or clean your emerald. Ask the jeweler that will set your emerald, not to use the buffing wheel to polish the ring or pendant, once the stone is set. The setting should be high polish before setting the emerald. Once the stone is set, the jeweler should just polish the prongs or bezel with the hand piece, without going over the stone in any way. Avoid rapid temperature changes and high heat sources.

2- Clean your emerald periodically (when it is less lively and sparkling) with cold water and a mild soap. Perform this operation with the help of a soft toothbrush. Clean it well, rinse it and dry it. Avoid rapid temperature changes and high heat.

3
- Emerald is a hard gem, which is however brittle. Make sure to remove your emerald ring before any heavy activities such as washing dishes by hand, or working with tools. A hard knock can break your emerald.
