Gems and stones contain healing energies that can be activated by wearing them as rings or necklaces or by placing them in water and drinking the water the following day. Gems enliven the chakras and have a direct effect on the doshas. They may be used to pacify or activate specific organs of the body or enhance or neutralize the effects of particular planets in the birth chart. Gems tend to absorb the qualities and energy vibrations of their owners. It is beneficial to purify any stone before using it. Soaking it for two days in saltwater or milk should be sufficient.
