Blue Sapphire (Neela or Neelam)



The term “Sapphire” roots back to the sanskrit word “sani” , “shani”, or ‘saturn’. Shani is basically Lord of Saturday. In the history, Sapphire was used for the treatment of patients suffering from rheumatism, and those who exhibited demonic possessions. 

The most dreaded gem ever available on Earth is known as Blue Sapphire or Neelam. A person who would be asked to wear a Neelam being the Lover of astrology would create a question mark on the thought. The instable nature of Neelam needs to be dealt with care. Neelam would be responsible for the extremities. If this stone suites an individual, it would actually provide a very beneficial result. But if it does not suite, whole life of an individual would be destroyed. In many occasion, if the person wearing Neelam does not suites him, he may even lead to death’s bed.

It is important to get a trial of whether the blue Sapphire would suite the particular person or not. After wearing the gemstone for the trial basis, if this gemstone proved to be really beneficial, the native must wear the same. During the trial period, the incidents such as minor accident, headache, and pain in abdomen can take place. As soon as such negative effect takes place, the native must automatically put off the stone without much delay. The best way would be to try it by keeping it for three days under the pillow of the individual who would wear it. The observance of negative or positive effect would specify the utility of Neelam.

But wearing natural , clear and good cut stones gives good effect in life. Natural gem is something that was found in a mine and thousands of years old and not artificially factory made.

Be aware of artificially prepared colored stone. 80% gems available are not natural stone. This is indeed a big problem in the market now. They are either glass made artificially or gem stone colored artificially to increase its price. These stones are sometime capable of passing the laboratory test (like GII test) as well like the original.
