In this mechanical world, the life is full of stress and strain and these often disturb us. Every body desires peace, good health and prosperity in life. There are various options for the control of disorders such as allopathic medicine, homeopathic medicine, ayurvedic, holisticpathy, yoga, various kinds of natural methods etc. Of these, the gemstone therapy, one of the most ancient & natural science followed in India million years ago but lost in transition, is now gearing up with better understanding. This therapy is harmless and has no side effect, and may resolve many forthcoming issues for the control of problems aroused. The disappearance of this science in the last few centuries appears to be associated with two reasons: - the leaders in each society knew the concepts but did not pass on to others for one reason or the other and the cost of gems and their rare availability. Therefore, this science remained in the hands of limited people.
Conceptually the function of gem therapy is associated with color energy hence it can also be called as color therapy. Modern science has observed the significant influence of colors like blue and red rays on the human body. Nearly 2000 years ago, color halls were made in many countries where patients used to take color bath for cure of their diseases. It can be said that the colors have a great influence on the system of human chemistry. But, how they exactly function is not well understood.
Presently it is known that white light/sun light is composed of seven colors that can be seen with the help prism. The seven colors red, yellow, green, blue, violet, indigo and orange of different wavelengths have different governance on the system of body. The significance of color energy affecting the human system is:

Red color 1st Chakra (Base)

A person suffering from mental disturbances, torture, high blood pressure, loose temper needs the energy of white color. This color protects against widowhood and accidents. It also helps for wealth.

Present theory of color: The theory of colors in affecting the humanism is not well known. However , it is known that the white light/ Sun light is composed of seven colors visible through prism light spectrum

Author’s view: The author thinks that a different phenomenon of light color energy occurs. Alternatively, it is hypothized that all the seven individual color energy mixing together forms the white light. The basis of this assumption ought to have the question of existence of seven sources of color energy entering into existing plane. In order to trace out the concept, the ancient history defined by the Omni Lords about the whole system of the universe was surveyed. It appears that the planets are the source of energy because they emit self-generating rays similar to the Sun. Hence it can be inferred that the planets are those which emit self-rays. Seven planets are defined in each solar system and these are the sun, the moon, the Jupiter, the mercury, the Venus, the Saturn and the Mars. These planets posses their own rays of different intensity and color. For example, the sun emits red and warm rays where as the moon emits white and cool rays. Further the Saturn emits blue, the Mars-orange and the Mercury emitting green rays. Similarly other remaining planets emit their own rays of different colors other than the defined. All the rays emitting from planets are spreading over the entire solar plane and make the formation of white light. Therefore our Earth being the part of this solar system also receives all the color rays in the form of white light which is a mixture of seven basic colors.

Further it has to be borne in mind that each solar system has 88 planets and out of which seven energetic planets and two shadow planets were considered in astrological system.
Furthermore, each planet is associated with the designated gemstones which are based on the color contribution such as ruby for the Sun, pearl for the Moon, topaz for the Jupiter, emerald for the Mercury, diamond for the Venus, blue sapphire for the Saturn and coral for the Mars. This concept is being followed from the ancient time till date. It has a significance to support the views presented.

The above hypothesis also signifies through the observation of formation of seven centers/ Chakras in the human body, a same planetary system. This is an important aspect which shows the value of color energy and their effect on the behavior of human chemistry. In view of this, a small quantity and intensity of color energy obtained through a small piece of gemstone works wonders to stimulate the body’s own healing processes.

Seven centers are connected with the whole body and more particularly with the specific fingers. It is thus, the finger functions as the receiver of color rays and transmits to their respective centers. These centers, although independent, are bridged with the main center known as center of Saturn, which is receiver of blue color ray. Therefore, the blue color ray has the most powerful healing capacity and any malfunctioning may cause serious disorders.

All the planets are moving with respect to the earth at different speeds. As a result, at any moment, all the planets will have a definite position in relation to the earth and the relative position is very important which tells about the blueprint of person born during that specific time including the kinds of disorders. The accurate calculations through the well-defined astrological parameters and their interpretation may speculate the kind of good and bad events. For healthy and happy life, it is inferred that all the colors are to be balanced with each other in specific ratio for one self. Any imbalances, disturbances and deficiency of color rays would cause disorders. Hence, the balancing of centers is important which can be provided through outside help.

The color rays are available all the time around us and on the entire plane in the form of white (mixed) light. To get an individual color as per need, the required gems are to be worn in order to block the other color rays available at the same time. A number of gemstones are available which tap the known forces of planets in form of color energy and transmit the required energy to human beings. For obtaining the required energy, gems are to be sported in many different ways either to a particular chakra or to whole person or around neck. But the best way for the increased efficiency is to sport at the fingers, which have direct channels to the centers of the human body. Each finger is specific to certain planet. Therefore the selection of the proper finger and type of gems to be used is of prime importance. The selection of gemstones, although, appears to be simple but for obtaining full benefits, a wide experience and clarity for analysis of requirement regarding size, color potency and analysis of center requirements would be a utmost need. Any disease/problem is not due to one planet and several planets may be associated with the cause. Both, excessive energy and the deficient energies would result in the formation of real cause. For exact balancing of the negative and positive energies of centers, different kinds of gems are to be worn. Therefore, for one specific problem; several stones can be utilized at the same time.

Color/Stone radiation therapy: It is an accelerated process of gemstone therapy in which the color light or light through gemstone is projected on the human body. The light so obtained can be projected directly on the malfunctioning parts for the acceleration of healing process. The experiments conducted in this direction for the control and aid to affected parts such as chronic pains, have shown a better improvement at an early time. The process is useful for the prevention of hair loss and hair growth, facial glow with the reduction of wrinkles and control of pimples/acne with better skin elasticity.
The application of gemstones/ light therapy seems to be scientific and aids the people for control of their problems and diseases with no harmful and side effects as no oral medicines are given. It is a holistic and non invasive therapy and is a part of every day life. With this concept, it may be inferred that gemstones/light therapy are capable of curing any kind of disorders. Experiments conducted in this direction show that the chronic diseases like Migraine, Asthma, Heart, Tumors, Spinal & Backaches, Blood pressures, Stomach, Kidney & Kidney stones, Piles, Arthritis, Epilepsy, sexual aging etc. may be treated with the help of gemstones.

It is a low cost technique and even poor class people can afford using any stone of good quality. Further various metals referred to planets are also effective and perhaps they work on free electrons available at the outer orbits of metals. It helps you to look and feel younger and enables you to have new life style.
