Please check from a competent astrologer whether or not Ruby 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 Ruby on a Sunday during the Shukla Paksha (the ascending moon
cycle). If you have problems purchasing a Ruby on Sunday, then, purchase
it on a Monday or a Thursday. It is better still if Sun is in its own
sign, Leo. Ruby may also be purchased when the nakshatra (constellation)
is Pushya, Krittika, Uttara Phalguni or Uttarashada.
The ring should be set in a mixture of Gold and Copper and the stone
mounted in open backed ring such that it can touch the finger that you
wear on. The weight of the Ruby should be around 3 rattikas.
(1 Rattika = 0.9 carats).
Upon receiving the ring, decide on the day to wear it keeping in mind
the rules given in Step 2. The ring should be worn at Sunrise time.
Sit facing East or a Dark Red 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 red cloth on
which a Surya Yantra (numerical yantra may be used) is drawn with red
sandalwood paste or roli with some turmeric powder.
Offer flowers, incense to the yantra and the Ruby and chant the
following mantra 108 times:
"Aum Hring Hamsah Suryaye Namah Aum"
or chant Aditya Hridyam Stotram or Gayatri Mantra.
Wear the ring.
