                                   Names Hindi

There are so many people I have found who get confused when asking for gemstone (specially
the Indian community). The general population in India buy gemstones for astrological/vedic
use or as color therapy but I have found in 100's of occasions they not knowing the actual
names of the precious and semi precious stones. I would hate for anyone looking to wear a
birthstone out of faith or advice from an astrologer and later found its found out to be something
that was not advised.
