Why Find The Right Gemstone And Wear It By Your Weight?

Why Find The Right Gemstone And Wear It By Your Weight?

When you want to wear gemstones for using their astrological powers, you need to heed to the right weight of the gemstone just as much as your birth chart. Wearing stones by weight is important because it regulates appropriate energies without conflict. If you don’t have an astrologer close to make that right calculation, just scroll. I have listed how to find the right gemstone and wear it by your weight based on a secret formula. Ready to unlock all the metaphysical powers you are missing?  

What is Carat of a gemstone?

While most of us end up buying gemstones based on the price or popularity, Vedic astrology differs in advice. If you want the metaphysical attributes of the gemstones to influence your life, bring luck and bless you, you need to choose the right weight of it.

The weight of a gemstone is determined in carats. One carat consists of 200 mg. It is used especially for the diamond to pearls and other gemstones while karat is used for gold alloy.

What is ratti that my astrologer keeps saying?

Natural Morganite Beryl Gemstone Bracelet

The older way to assess the weight of a gemstone is in ratti, especially in India. Derived from the Sanskrit word ratika, ratti was the oldest measurement object with one ratti coming to 1.75 to 1.80 grains.

What does my astrologer mean by Savaa, Saadhe and Pauna carat weight of gemstones?

Besides the ratti, based on the decimal point weight of the stone is divided into three quadrants called savaa, saadhe and pauna.

  • Saava: 0.1 to 0.35
  • Saadhe: 0.35 to 0.75
  • Pauna: 0.75 to 0.99

How many carats is one Ratti?

I told you the weight of carat in milligrams above. Do you remember it? 1 carat is equal to 200mg while 1 ratti is equal to 185.25 mg. While a good number of gemstones are processed after cutting through India, you might hear ratti as a common term for the weight of the stone. But, we suggest you check the weight in carats as it is the standard measurement all over the world.

How to decide on the weight of the gemstone by your weight?

According to the Indian scriptures from Vedic Astrology, gemstones must be worn with respect to your weight. The formula or equation to determine the carat of gemstone you must wear based on your weight are two.

  • Ideal weight of stone= One ratti per 12kg of Weight
  • The ideal weight of stone= 10% of your Body Weight in KG

For example, if your body weight is 120 lbs., your body weight in KG will be 54.4. The total carat you must wear is 4.5 to 5.4-carat gemstone by your zodiac sign.

Why Select a Gemstone by your Body Weight?

When you go shopping for shoes, do you select it by price or size? If you go by the price alone, your shoe won’t fit. On the other hand, when you go by size, the shoe is usable. The same is with everything in life. We buy vegetables by the quantity we need, and drink water by the amount we need.

That’s why selecting the gemstone by your body weight is important. It will help in adapting better to your body. Ergo, it will work faster and easier on your body!

·      To Fully Influence your Body

When you wear the right carat of gemstone, it will connect with your body ideally. You won’t experience side-effects and unexpected horrors or negativity. Gemstones chosen by your body weight can cover your body without leaving patches of unprotected space.

·      Fitting Energies

For those of you wearing or using gemstones based on your body weight, you will experience balance in life. The energies within the stone will reveal itself to you. Moreover, you will find out how perfectly it solves all your problems.

·      Astrological Purposes

Part of the reason why correct carat of gemstones can resolve your problems in life is that it pushes away the malefic planet properties. On top of it, if you choose the right birthstone, it will awaken your strengths to bring out more potential from you.

What is the popular carat weight of gemstones used today?

While it is important to look at the carat weight of the gemstone, there is no law that states you need to stick to it. For example, when you buy apples, no two apples are the same size. If one apple contains double the nutrients, you don’t need to go for two apples. One will do.

The same way, even if your astrologer said you need a 15 carat (impossible!) flawless ruby, getting a good Burmese ruby of 2-3 carats will not hamper your destiny. Perhaps that’s why the trend of weight in gemstones vary from 2-5 carats today.

What else should I look for when selecting gemstones perfect for me?

Natural Crystal Fluorite Stones

Besides the weight of the stone, the next most important factor is Clarity. A flawless or high-grade clarity stone is equivalent to or better than a low-grade high carat gemstone. When selecting the gemstone with your astrologer, remember to share your age. When buying the gemstone, ask about its age too.

When you’re wearing any gemstone as jewelry, you can compromise the carat weight. It’s alright! Another reason to reduce the carat weight of a gemstone is if the healing crystal is flawless and excellent. Better clarity of crystals makes it more powerful according to Vedic Astrology.

@Iyn, unfortunately your birth date isn’t totally clear; depending on how you’ve formatted it, it could equally easily be March 2nd or February 3rd.

If it’s March, then Aquamarine is the top gemstone for you. Cool, calm and mysterious, soothing yet invigorating, Aquamarine, named by the Ancient Romans for seawater because of its blue to blue-green colouration, is the fix for a number of ailments like Asthma, and is also – particularly when teamed with its sister Beryl, Emerald – excellent for inflammatory disorders. Aquamarine worn around the neck, preferably on a short chain so it’s at or near the throat chakra), or mid-breastbone, gives it access to the two chakras it’s most effective on: the throat and the higher heart. Aquamarine promotes clear, logical thought, calm, concise speech and relaxation. It also makes an excellent team with your other possible birthstone, Amethyst.

If your birthday is in February (and if so, yours is only one day after my father-in-law’s and my late grandfather’s as well), then you’ll be best with the is indomitable, eternal gem. The beautiful sentinel, as I call Amethyst, is a highly spiritual stone which, before the discovery of mass deposits in South America, right up there with Diamonds, Sapphires, Rubies and Emeralds for rarity. Amethyst will promote calm, sensible behaviour, sober thinking, and will protect against negative energies in any form. It’s also, strangely for such a powerfully spiritual gem, a grounder, allowing contact with Mother Earth and the Angel Realm! That’s one powerful stone.

In either case, anything between 3 – 7 carats, clarity depending, should be good.

Love and Light.

Ceida, that Emerald has been so helpful that, when I lost it last month, I was absolutely panic-stricken! I hauled the bed and mattress about, dragged out all the junk that was stored under it, tore a load of muscles, got my back and shoulders desperately inflamed, and caused myself a giant Asthma attack because of the dust I stirred up. I was content to do all that and more to myself, if it would reunite me with my baby. Of course, as it turned out, it wasn’t under there at all; but it did lead me to my Cornish Amethyst pendant for the first time in a decade.

One of my other most special pendants is my Sky-Blue Topaz. It’s a princess cut, 6mm x 6mm (which apparently makes it about 1.25ct), and as clear as a cloudless summer sky. It’s doubly special because I found it instead of buying it, while waiting for a bus on the day my husband was hospitalised with septicaemia; the nurses told me he was within eighteen hours of losing his life! That crystal was my strength and sanity during an almost year-long period, while I nursed him slowly back to health with virtually no help at all from the medical profession. Obviously that Topaz was meant to be mine – the midsummer Sunlight (it was June, only a few days past the Summer Solstice) reflecting off the Sterling silver bezel setting, nearly scorched a hole in my right retina to get my attention – but given the gem’s size and extreme clarity, how compatible would it be from the Vedic viewpoint?

Love and Light.

@Nemelyn, from your details, I can say that Tanzanite would be good for you: it’s a December birthstone which works on the heart, third eye and crown chakras. The carat weight might be something of an issue, however, because if – if – you can find anything over a 0.5ct solitaire for sale, it will cost a fortune! As a matter of fact, your only chance for a solitaire Tanzanite bigger than that, would probably be a laboratory grown crystal like mine. I think mine is about 10ct; it’s a pear facet, 25mm x 12mm. I suppose a cluster would be okay (my Peridot cluster totals 3.5 carats, and they’re of excellent clarity), and they are available from The Jewellery Channel, which organisation has a one-eighth share in Tanzanite One, the mining claim which produces the finest specimens of this gem; but I don’t know if you’re in the UK, and if not, I don’t know whether The Jewelley Channel does international shipping.

If you can’t obtain the right natural Tanzanite and can’t work with lab-made crystals, then I think a faceted Rose Quartz of 3-5 carats, clarity depending (the clearer the stone, the dmaller it can be under Vedic Astrology rules and still be auspicious) would be helpful for your heart chakra. I also have one of those – I think mine is about 7ct, but my IGS chart only goes to 5ct in the seven most popular facet styles (round, princess, marquise, emerald, pear, oval and heart), and it may only refer to Diamonds, so I’m only guessing based on its dimensions and the highest extremes of the chart.

You might also like to try Turquoise, which looks like a throat chakra stone but can influence the heart via the higher heart chakra (especially true of the green variety). Turquoise being what it is, it’s usually cut en cabochon, and you’d need to ask the seller about the carat weight in this case. Again, I think – though to be honest I really only know the bare minimums about Vedic Astrology – that 5ct and up would be fine.

Love and Light.

Hi Maya, the right stone for you is Blue Topaz in 5 carats. But, if you find a good quality topaz of 3 carats, that will do too.


February 23, 2019

You know funnily enough, when I was looking to buy an Emerald pendant last August, I could have bought anything between a one-carat and a seven-carat gemstone; but for some reason the only one which called to me, was the five-carat. Obviously I wasn’t meant to have a seven-carat one, at least not yet, but I wonder what Vedic Astrology would have had to say about that? (Just for reference, I was born in 1977.)
