Also Known As: Neelam
Corresponding Planet: Saturn
The Blue Sapphire gemstone is considered as the strongest of all the gemstones. This gemstone has supernatural powers that may eliminate & counter even long term misfortunes.
However, due to its extreme effects, the wearer has to be very careful before choosing to wear this gemstone & should test for about a week to see if indications of any adverse effects are present.
Neelam is associated with planet Saturn. Saturn is one of the most dominant of all the astrological planets & when it is ill-placed in the birth chart, one has to face many hardships in life. Being placed in a positive position, it brings unprecedented & overly satisfying rewards.For a badly posited Saturn, Blue Sapphire works to mellow the effects of Saturn & bring peace of mind to the wearer. If Saturn is positively placed, then this gemstone strengthens its position & enhances the positive results.
A person with weak Saturn in the birth chart should wear blue sapphire. If Saturn is weakly placed or debilitated in the birth chart, or if malefic planets are posited with Saturn, then wearing blue sapphire can greatly benefit the wearer.
However, before wearing a gemstone, the horoscope & birth chart of the wearer must be analyzed by an expert astrologer.
Blue Sapphire helps in curing ailments & developing body immunity against the following health issues:
Inclusions: Inclusions are almost always present in any stone & increase their luster and appearance. A blue sapphire stone that does not show any inclusion and tremendous shine is likely to be a fake or synthetic stone.
However, the quantity of inclusion can only be analyzed by a specialist like Gemologist. You should always have the gemstone checked by an expert before use.
Temperature: Blue Sapphire is warmer to touch. If while holding the gemstone in your hand, you feel warmth then it means that blue sapphire is real. A cold stone would be fake.
