Compatibility of Gemstones

Compatibility of Gemstones
Gemstones are generally recommended by astrologers for their healing properties and to ward off the negative effects of certain planets. According to vedic astrology, each planet has its specific gemstone. Each gemstone is made up of minerals that represents the power of its respective planet.
Gemstones are believed to possess immense mystical powers that can influence the wearer’s life in a huge way. Sometimes, according to the planetary positions in a person’s birth chart, it becomes necessary to combine two or more gemstones to reap maximum benefits. However, it is to be kept in mind that the gemstones being worn together should belong to friendly planets i.e. the planets they represent must be in a friendly relationship. Gemstones belonging to planets that are not compatible to each other should not be worn together.
