HOW TO WEAR A GEM
Before wearing, the stone should be kept in unboiled milk, gangajal with some tulsipatra, for some time. Than it should be taken out & washed with clean & fresh water & than some flowers, sandalwood & agarbatti should be placed before it.
Always wear unused new stone. Used stone can be reused by blood relations, say husband-wife, bother-sister or father-mother etc. close fiends can also wear a used stone, but it should always be tried before wearing. Because a used stone imbibes the nature, habits & qualities good or bad of the person who has used it before, and one who wears it afterwards is likely to be effected.
