it. Sunday is Sun's day, Monday is Moon's day, Tuesday
is Mars day, Wednesday is Mercury day, Thursday is Jupiter
day, Friday is Venus day and Saturday is Saturn's Day. Rahu
is akin to Saturn and Ketu is akin to Mars. These two days can be used for
Rahu and Ketu. The first hour of the day after sunrise is the ideal time to
wear a Gem. When the Gem is ready for wearing it must be kept in raw cow's

altar. The concerned deity to be invoked and incenses shown and some small
offering of Milk sweets made. After this formality it can be worn. This
gives best effect. Gems are said to lose power in 5 years time. There is no
authentic evidence to support this theory. A good gem should last forever as
we see it with diamonds like 'Kohinoor' or the 'Hope diamond'.
