Natives faces problems when Mercury gets weak in birth chart due to the debilitation or conjunction with the malefics – Moon, Rahu or Jupiter, due to it’s weak conditions in the birth chart it affects life in various manners because it’s significations get affected.

  • It gives intelligence and good communication capabilities.

  • Success in love relations and happy married life.
  • Success in trade or stock market business.
  • Helps to cure the health issues related to skin, nerves, dental, heart etc.

Suggested Finger:

As there is contradiction for wearing emerald, some says it should be in small finger, but in my view that, little finger is denoted to Moon and Moon is enemy to Mercury, so despite of good results it won’t be effective or may give bad results also.

So, wear it in the ring finger because it is a finger of it’s friend Sun also and Sun will provide better support to Mercury. Summarily for emerald ring finger is best.

Emerald is suggested to worn studded in Gold or Panch dhatu only. Whereas wearing in neck is also suggested if someone like to wear in neck also.

Finger for Emerald

In case planet goes to 6, 8, 12 house

Since 6, 8, 12 houses are the Trik houses, whenever planet occupies the positioning in these house it gets weakened, so it is must to strengthen the supportive planet through gemstones. But in case of non supportive or enemy planet gemstones should be avoided, in this case it is better to perform remedies through donation, jap and puja only.

Some Important Instructions

In order to get the good and actual results from any gemstone, it is must that the stone should be natural, non heated, non treated, should be ideal in weight and free from any blemishes or major spots in it, however natural gemstones may have some natural marks or inclusions in it but these can be used.

The another most important factor to get the good results is energization or “Pranapratishtha” of gemstone, therefore energization through Vedic process by following the suitable Muhurat for wearing any gemstones is must.

Ratti or Carat

Ideally as per astrological uses an astrologer suggests the weight of any stone as per the strength o any planet, if planet is more weak or afflicted then go for the more than 4 to 8 carat in weight.

For your reference: – 1 carat is 200mg and 1Ratti is 180mg, so if you are purchasing any gemstone then it should be from 4.5 to 5.5 ratti gemstone, since ratti and carats both are ideal as per the astrological uses and both can be used for strengthening the planets.

Note: for Males it is suggested to wear gemstone is odd Ratti or Carat and for females it should be in even ratti or carat, for eg. for females even ratti are 4, 6 and for males are 5 or 7.

Some Important Lab Testing Parameters

Refractive Index

Refraction is the bending of light as it passes in or out of a gem. The angle of refraction in the stone determines its RI. Gemstones with a high Refractive Index are more brilliant than those with a low Refractive Index.

Specific Gravity

Specific gravity is the ratio that indicates the weight of a given object compared to that of an equal volume of water at a specific temperature. So it is must that any gemstone should have ideal specific gravity to get results.


Now a days in large number there is a heat treated stones are available in the market, so avoid to buy any heat treated gemstones if you want to get natural and best effects from any gemstone.


Weight of any gemstone should be ideal, low weight may not give you actual results. Understand with the example, if someone is having fever and taking the half table for fever then hey may get partial or incomplete relief from the fever, but full dose of medicine will give complete relief from the fever, therefore always wear gemstone of appropriate weight.

For any gemstones related query you can freely raise your query, I will be glad to clear your confusions related to the gemstones.
