Gemstones are recommended based on your horoscope. It is also very important to wear the right Gemstone as per your natal chart, a gemstone is a stone that is beautiful, rare, and durable. All gemstones have some characteristics. Performing remedial measures and wearing stone for a particularly planet helps increase the positive aspects of the planet in the horoscope.
