two carat cut and faceted diamond would be prohibitively expensive.
Isn't there a substitute gem for the diamond?
astrologers advise white sapphire for Venus as a substitute stone
for the diamond. I feel that if the client is really serious
about getting an affordable and correct electromagnetic gem for
Venus, then it has to be a diamond crystal, as so far I have
not found any Puranic text advising white sapphire. I suspect
the unethical practice in India of astrologers selling white
sapphires for Venus influence began as a consequence of not having
any diamonds for sale. They suggested white sapphires as being
the next best thing. There is no evidence from any illumined
sages that white sapphires are viable substitutes for diamonds.
And thus, as it is not referenced in the Vedas by the rishis,
then individuals sincerely interested in improving their magnetic
karmic pattern should not be swayed by the cosmetic appeal of
the white sapphire. There are also other concerns I have over
experience has been that, of all the sapphires, it is most difficult
to detect heat treatment of white sapphire. Its crystal clear
quality prevents several gemological procedures from detecting
the violent heat-treatment process, potentially in excess of
1600 degrees Celsius. So common is the practice of heating the
milkier sapphires to clear transparent white (97% with stones
over two carats), that I am reluctant to guarantee any white
sapphire. Often when heating yellow or blue sapphires to bring
up the color, they go the other way and turn crystal clear. These
falsified gems are then sold as white sapphires.
many uncut diamond crystals of two carats and over which possess
all the desired electromagnetic properties as an alternative
which offers substantial savings.
