Please check from a competent astrologer whether or not Blue Sapphire
suits you. Wearing a gemstone that does not suit you as per your
astrological chart is not recommended. Gemstones bring changes in your
natural energy fields and wearing a non suitable gemstone can be
harmful. Only upon verification of the above, move to Step 2.
Buy a Blue Sapphire on a Saturday during the Shukla Paksha (the
ascending moon cycle). Blue Sapphire may also be purchased when the
nakshatra (constellation) is Shravana, Kshatbhika, Purva Bhadrapada,
Uttarakshad, Chitra, Svati or Vishakha.
The ring should be set in Panchdhatu (Metal with five parts: 1 part
gold, 2 parts silver, 3 parts lead, 4 parts iron, and 1 part copper) and
the stone mounted in open backed ring such that it can touch the finger
that you wear on. The weight of the Blue Sapphire should be not be less
than 1.5 rattikas. (1 Rattika = 0.9 carats). A 5 rattika or 7 rattika blue
sapphire is better. A 5 carat Blue Sapphire is quite auspicious.
Upon receiving the ring, decide on the day to wear it keeping in mind
the rules given in Step 2. Best time to wear it in is the evening of
Saturday of the said nakshatras.
Sit facing West on a black asana. Keep the ring immersed in raw cow’s
milk. Then wash it with Ganga – water or water kept in a copper pot
overnight. After it has been washed, keep the ring on a black cloth on
which a Saturn Yantra (numerical yantra may be used) is drawn with red
sandalwood paste, rice paste or roli.
Offer flowers, incense to the yantra and the Blue Sapphire and chant the
following mantra 108 times:
Aum Sham Shanaishcharaye Namah Aum or "Om Namo Bhagwate Vasudevaya"
Wear the ring.
