The reason for these Gemstone recommendations lies in the fact that over a period, gemstones have proved themselves as the fastest in producing results and various gemstones have proved their ability to sustain those results as long as they are worn by native. Many people have got rid of some very annoying diseases, problems and other issues after wearing a specific gemstone or a combination of gemstones.
Many others have achieved very good things in their lives after wearing a specific combination of gemstones, which these people were otherwise not capable of achieving. Hence, the use of gemstones as an astrological remedy is increasing day by day and more and more people are benefitting by wearing the gemstones recommended to them by their astrologers. Many astrologers who practice around the world, in various forms of astrology, suggest to their clients various types of gems, while Vedic astrology strongly recommends the use of the gemstones they belong to a planet among navagraha only.
For this reason, Vedic astrology is only 9 gems, one for each planet between Navagraha. These nine gemstones are called Ruby, Pearl, Yellow Sapphire, White Sapphire or Diamond, Red Coral, Emerald, Blue Sapphire, Hessonite and Cat’s Eye, and they are worn for Sun, Moon, Jupiter, Venus, Mars, Mercury, Saturn, Rahu and Ketu respectively. Through this series of articles we will look at certain characteristics possessed by each one of these gemstones and in the present article, we will discuss some important things about Ruby, which is the gemstone associated with Sun.
Sun as we know is a fiery, dry and hot planet and Vedic astrology considers it as the king among navagraha. Sun is the giver and promoter of every kind of life on earth the importance of this planet in our lives cannot be described in words. The strength of Sun can vary from horoscope to horoscope, which means that in some horoscopes, Sun may be very strong, it may be having average strength in some horoscopes and it may be weak or very weak in some other horoscopes. The strength of Sun is measured by various methods available in Vedic astrology though some astrologers and people interested in astrology still think that the presence of Sun in a particular sign is the only factor that can affect the strength of Sun in a horoscope.
This is not true as there are many factors, which can affect the strength, or weakness of Sun in a horoscope and the placement of Sun in a particular sign is just one of them. If you go forward, the sun may become weaker in a horoscope because it is on the mark of weakness due to the pain of one or more bad planets in the horoscope, due to the weak placement in some houses of the horoscope and many other factors. When the sun becomes weaker in a horoscope, it is unable to protect its generic and specific concepts, and therefore the native may see bad results or fewer good results related to the significances of Sun.
When such a weak sun functions as a benefic planet in a horoscope, an extra force must be applied to a sun that is so weak that it can begin to function properly in the horoscope and it may protect its significances. This results in good things happening to the native in various spheres of his life.

It should be noted that the different colors of the Ruby may be suitable for different natives and therefore every native must use a Ruby belonging to a color belonging to Sun and this gemstone is not capable of changing the working nature of Sun in a horoscope.
It means that if Sun is working positively or Sun is benefic in a horoscope, wearing this gemstone will increase the strength of Sun and as such positive Sun gains strength, it will start producing good results for the native with increased quantum and frequency. On the other hand, if Sun is working negatively which means that Sun is malefic in the horoscope, wearing the gemstone for Sun will provide additional strength to this negative Sun and as it gains strength, it will start causing problems and losses for the native with increased strength and quantum. Hence, utmost care should be taken that only those people should wear this gemstone, who have a benefic Sun in their horoscopes whereas the natives having a malefic Sun in their horoscopes should not wear a Ruby as wearing this gemstone can cause serious problems related to many spheres of their lives.
