This ancient knowledge has been passed on for generations and hence there has been a steep increase in popularity of gemstones leading to lot of luck, increase in materialistic gains, holistic health, spiritual practices and healing. Hence the use of gemstones is again making its way into the schedules of busy, urban people who may or may not be believers of spirituality, alternative healing and religion.
