Gemology GEMS 'The mines of cosmic rays' Mankind has been always witness to the spectacular phenomenon of rainbows. A rainbow is composed of seven colors namely VIBGYOR â€“ Violet, Indigo, Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange & Red.
The importance of seven colors has been observed in Karma Purana (chapter 43 V-1-2) and also in the Holy Bible ( chapter Genesis IX, 13 & IX 16). The spectrum is the vital part of the God's framework of the universe.
The human body also consists of seven colors deficiency of any color will cause imbalances in the body leading to disease and other problems.

These gemstones pick up the particular cosmic rays and transmit them into the body, as a consequence of which the body starts functioning in the right way physically and mentally.
