Red Coral is the primary gemstone for Mars in the Vedic Astrology tradition. All planets have a “higher” value and a “challenging” aspect to their natures. Mars is the planet of action, assertiveness, aggression and the martial spirit. The primary purpose of Healing Gems is to mitigate the challenging karmas of the planet and to promote the more positive or “higher” values of the planet. Not enough Mars energy in a person’ chart can manifest as low physical energy or stamina. Too much Mars can manifest as aggression or anger. A good quality gemstone can help to balance out these energies. A recommended size is 5-9 carats. The gem can be worn as a ring or pendant and should be set in 14kt or 18kt yellow gold.
