Gems are being widely used as a popular astrological remedy as a remedial measure to counteract adverse planetary effects. Gems have their own power of attracting an individual by their brilliance and beauty. The ancient seers of India called them as ratnas (jewels) and used them to help an individual native.
Planets radiate their energy and influence through color. The astrological powers of gemstones are derived from the special cosmic influences of their associated ruling planets. The ancient gemological texts of India explain that white light is actually composed of nine colors, symbolic of the nine planets.
Each of these 9 planets exerts a particular influence on you, depending on their position at the time of your birth. Some planets have a strong influence on your life, while others have a weak influence.

Fantastic collection with room for improvement
If you know the stones you want to learn about, this guide has the best collection of the few apps I've found for stone descriptions. The interface is basic and intuitive and allows bookmarks (which helps me keep track of the ones I have in my growing collection).
It would be nice if the search feature could pick up aliases for stones that have nicknames (Cat's Eye is Tiger's Eye) and organize stones with multiple kinds (such as Opal / Agate) into a top category with subcategories (Fire, White, Yellow / Moss, Botswana, Blue). This app would be greatly improved with headers and emphasis in each page of the different features, such as chakra points, healing, related, and so on, perhaps even with symbols or related colors?
Its Ok But not as good as it could be
The first thging I noticed was the openning page,what the app relats to is the smallest thing on it the reast of the page trys to get you to buy some body building technic App and also to start your crystal App the start button is not very visable all this my seem trival but I did pay for a crystal app and I would think the mian them from the start woud be just that and any advertisments scendary ,But once you get through all thaat the rest of the app is good
A Good Guide
As a Crystal Resonance Intuitive and a Gemstone Aficionado, it's sometimes really difficult to lug around all of my books and personal Crystal Diary on a day-to-day basis, so it's nice that there are developers out there, trying to make it a little easier in getting the information I need. The Gemstone Powers Bible App is a pretty large list of most commonly found crystals, and it's nice that it also lists a few newish stones that are currently circulating in the market. It's not really the most comprehensive guide and it looks like the information is from multiple sources, written in short form, getting the basic info most commonly agreed upon by a majority of Crystal Resonance Intuitives. (Sources for this app appear to include info previously written by Judy Hall, Melody, Robert Simmons and Naisha Ahsian, though there is no bibliography or online references).
Currently, the App does not list any scientific properties, chemical composition or hardness. It also does not reference any astrological properties (for example, there are no ties to Zodiacs, or references of planetary influences on stones.) In its current state, The Gemstone Powers App serves as a quick reference guide, with options for bookmarking your favorite apps.
It would be nice if the developer continued to work with the App, to add a few key features that would make this THE mobile app for Crystal Aficionados. Some of the features needed include options for notes, uploading photos of our own personal collection. It would be lovely if there was a way for contribute information on stones, chakras, gridding, elixer recipes, meditations and healing layouts that could benefit other users.
If you are a crystal hound that wants a short guide you can carry in your pocket, this App is definitely worth a look.
