Birthstones are gems that you can wear all the time. It is your personal gemstone and can be worn without any hitch. What is attracts and makes you connected to your own birthstone? When you see it – there is some sparkle in your eyes, when you search it among other gemstones. It is well connected to your own energies.


Your birthstones are well connected to you because they are well aligned to your energies. They are represented by your birth month/date or your astrological sign. They enhance your energy level and make you align to the environment by inducing the perfect wavelength for you. This makes you well connected to the higher cosmic level of the world or you can say macrocosm [as then you are microcosm]. This makes you feel the way you are. As these birthstones are connected with your own astrological sign so they work on healing the mind, body, and soul. The connection with mind it brings clarity and helps to define your life purpose. When it relates to body- heal and provide energy to boost you up. Where it is related to the soul- it helps your soul to go deeper to know yourself.

When you are well connected to it then you feel yourself important. You are more precious – not to others but to your own self. When you feel yourself important then new confidence is felt within that makes you successful.

If you cannot afford costly gemstones then you can get their substitutes that are cheaper than the primary gemstones and also effective. See the list below and their effectiveness too that is assessed by my own personal experience.

  • Ruby can be substituted by Red Spinel or Garnet is known as Rabaha(රබහ) in Sri Lanka.
  • Pearl can be substituted by Moonstone that is very effective.
  • Emerald can be substituted by Peridot, Zircon, or chrysoberyl.
  • Yellow Sapphire (Pushparaga පුෂ්පරාග in Sinhala) can be substituted by Yellow chrysoberyl, Citrine, or Yellow Topaz.
  • Diamond is substituted by Zircon or Topaz.
  • Blue Sapphire is substituted by Blue Spinel, Iolite, or Tanzanite. Sri Lankan Blue Sapphire has the maximum universal power(both healing, attraction, and wealth).
  • Orange Sapphire is a substitute by Hessonite Garnet (Gomeda ගෝමේද in Sinhala)
  • Cat’s eye (Wairodi වයිරෝඩී in Sinhala)is a very strong and reasonably cheap gemstone.

Remember that all gemstones are not suited to all. Consult an expert(Astrologer) for the best results. No two combinations should be worn without an expert’s advice.
