Gems and Doshas

Gems and precious metals are used in Ayurveda to balance planetary influence and to act directly on life force. The ancient Ayurvedic researchers studied healing properties of gems, and found that different stones created different effects in the human body. Healing stones absorb and produce specific energies that are related to the frequences of the light that they receive. These frequencies can be seen as colors and are related to planetary energies that go well beyond the visble light frequencies. Having the capacity to both attract and dispel positive or negatives energies, their healing energies are received through wearing them in jewelry or having them in some way close to body, placing them in water overnight and drinking the water the next day; drinking water from vessels made of specific metals such as gold, silver or copper, or taking gem tinctures  in water. In the case of metal drinking vessels, gold is good for vata while silver is good for pitta and kapha.
