Planets are also represented by various colours and gemstones, which can also
help strengthen the various tissues of the body they represent:

Surya (Sun) – Asthi (Bones) – Red / Orange colours, and the Gemstone Ruby.
This increases Pitta dosha (bile, heat) in the body, especially circulation around
the heart.

Soma (Moon) – Rakta (Blood) – White / milky colours and Pearl or Moonstone,
which increase Kapha (phlegm, coolness) in the body, especially lubrication of
the bones, joints and the mind.

Mangal (Mars) – Majja (Marrow or Nerves) – Red and Red Coral or Jasper,
which increase Pitta (bile, heat) in the body, especially related to eyesight
(alochaka pitta) and blood itself.

Budha (Mercury) – Rasa (Skin) – Green shades and Emerald or Jade, being a
balancing colour of the three doshas, and increasing Vata (dryness, coolness).

Brihaspati (Jupiter) – Meda (Fat) – Yellow hues and Yellow Sapphire or Topaz,
increasing Kapha (phlegm) and mildly increases Pitta (bile, heat). It relates to
building up the tissues or dhatus.

Shukra (Venus) – Shukra (Semen) – Clear / Transparent colours or Diamond /
Quartz. It relates to Kapha (phlegm) and mildly increases Vata (wind, dryness,
coolness), which is very calming and increases vitality (ojas) and seminal fluids.

Shani (Saturn) – Mamsa (Muscles) – Dark colours, specifically Dark (Navy) Blue
and Black. Gemstones such as Blue Sapphire or Onyx. It relates specifically to
the Vata dosha or wind-humor, but more specifically to Pranavayu (Vata in the
head region) and also Apanavayu (Vata in the elimination system). Proper
function of these results in good health – excess or deficient results in severe
psychological and health derangements, as we shall examine later on.
