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?
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?
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.
