Organic gemstones are found in the plant and animals primarily in the sea-water. Gemstones are identified through their hardness, crystal, and optical properties, however, it is not possible to judge them without advance examination techniques.

If these colorful stones really help, the answer is yes, they definitely do. If you will carefully observe the colors of gemstones and their corresponding planets, you will have the answer. For example, blue sapphire & Saturn are Blue, emerald & Mercury are Green, yellow sapphire & Jupiter are yellow, red coral & Mars are red, pearl & Moon are white and so on. If you put a prism in front of the Sun, it reflects seven color spectrum along with two invisible infra-red & ultra-violet, which make it nine colors of the nine planets and present you the cosmic matrix of the energy system.

As they have written:

Colors are not only a delight for the eyes and soul, used skillfully they have the  powers of an unseenwitchIt is proven that our body can be affected in specific ways by surrounding colors.

Stones absorb the cosmic energy from celestial bodies and use it on your body to provide the relevant help. Gems receive the cosmic energies of the planets in the form of color-coded frequencies through our solar system and infuse it into our body through a ring or pendant.[pullquote-right]Most of the stones are worn as a ring on the finger, and stone should touch your finger beneath the ring, this works as an entry point for the cosmic energy into your body.[/pullquote-right]If you are wearing a wrong gemstone, you will start feeling trouble within you and your life as it will be absorbing wrong energy into your body. However, planets show their real effect with genuine and natural stones only, which could be a challenge, as most of the gemstones in the market is synthetic or man-made.
