Gemstones are worn as a talisman or amulet to nullify or reduce the ill effect of adverse stars. Each zodiac sign (they are 12 in number) has been assigned a gem which is supposed to be lucky for the person of that particular sign. The following are the details:
The first sign of zodiac has its ruler Mars. If Mars is afflicted or posted in a negative place in one's horoscope, he/she should wear Red Coral. That will improve his/her position. Red Coral will promote mental strength and glands in the body will function properly.
This sign is ruled by Venus and its gem is Diamond. If Venus is debilitated or placed in enemy's house or in a negative position, it will cause negative results. Diamond may reduce the ill effect of that and bring in wealth, name, fame and prosperity.
