Mythology Of The Gemstone

By Expert Author: shivangigupta gupta

Since times immemorial the art and science of astrology was used for rectifying illnesses and bad luck. The scientific study of precious and semi precious gemstones slowly became an integral but critical part of corrective astrology.

There is no specific recorded history of exactly when and how this science evolved and gained importance. However, there are many instances of documentation of how stones were put to use. Some people have even commented that this science is more than 1,000-2,000 old while others suggest that the science and art pertaining to gemstones has its origins since 5,000 years ago.

Interestingly, there has always been a symbiotic and harmonious connection between humans and gems. This is evident because gems, especially blue and yellow sapphire, have been used for healing, curing, protecting, improving luck, fertility and prosperity. Ancient civilizations, namely Chinese, Egyptians, Sumerians, Greeks, Romans and Indians have used these semi precious stones wonders for corrective measures in a many ways. These stones were said to be worn only after offering prayers, conducting elaborate, pious ceremonies, and rituals. 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.
