Planetary Gemstones are gemstones linked with different planets which are deemed the ruling planets at the time you are born. Ancient people believed that the location of major planets and astral bodies at the time of your birth determines your personality and life. If you are born on the days where the astrological bodies are detrimental for your birth signs, it is believed you could manipulate the fate to your favor by wearing a gemstone that could repel or block the bad luck that your birth-day may bring. Astrology believes that wearing the lucky stone appropriate to their zodiac sign will help strengthen the ruling planet and weaker planet in their horoscopes. For example, the ruling planets for Scorpio are Mars and Pluto, both with powerful war-like and dark energy planets. The ruling planet for Sagittarius is Jupiter which is the planet of wealth and rulership.

Talismanic Stones are gemstones that have been engraved with sacred signs and symbols, and gone through a ritual to be energized with magical powers to protect the wearer from bad luck, nightmares, negative energy, witchcraft and evil in general.
