How to Calculate Gemstone Weight

gemstone weight calculator will give you precise and essential information concerning which gemstone you should wear. This calculator will provide you with results based on your birth ascendant.

Gemstones are very significant in one’s life if they have faith. They are precious and useful. Astrology believes in gemstones strongly and advises people to wear it on proper days with proper process.

These gems are used to reduce the effect of unlucky and damaging circumstances. If taken with a well-organized system, one will prosper and grow.

 

Let’s get to know more about the calculator:-

 

Using a gemstone calculator will help to know gemstones for astrological remedies based on one’s date of birth and name. It’s an important aspect to calculate the weight of a gemstone. The importance of a gem to be worn by a person can be determined based on:

  1. a) Their current body weight (in KGs) 
  2. b) Their current age. 

Usually, the age factor is avoided by many astrologers because it has a minor influence on the effectiveness of a gemstone as compared to body weight.

The idea following taking the bodyweight of a person as the denominator to calculate the weight of a gemstone to wear is that anything that we wear on our body or we take into our body such as Food, water, garments, footwear, etc. need some time to adapt or to satisfy the necessity of our body.

 

The formula for determining the weight of the gemstone

 

A commonly trusted prediction for gems is the carat equal to 1/10th of the wearer’s body weight, i.e., if a person weighs 60 KG, then the least weight of his gemstone must be 60 / 10 = 6 carats or slightly more.

 

What is the carat weight of the gemstone, and how to calculate it?

 

A carat is a unit of weight, commonly abbreviated as “ct.” It is often used to express the importance of diamonds and other gemstones.

An essential point to keep in mind is that carat weight is not the same as size or volume, and to conclude that importance, a carat weight calculator is used.

One carat is equal to 200 milligrams or 0.2 grams.

Different gemstones have different densities, and this is why a 1-carat diamond will not necessarily be as big as another gemstone that is also 1 carat in weight.

Let’s discuss what does a  gemstone carat weight calculator consists:-

 

1.) First off, one should decide the form and substance of the gemstone they prefer. Down below, you can see several shapes into which the gemstone will be shaped and assembled

  •  Round
  •  Oval
  •  Heart
  •  Cushion
  •  Princess
  •  Baguette
  •  Radiant
  •  Marquise
  •  Pear

 

2.) Then one should measure the length, width, and height of the gemstone.

Weight in carats = Length x Width x Depth x Coefficient

The length and width should be marked along the outer edge of the stone (its band).

 

L/W Ratio 1.25 = 0.0080

L/W Ratio 1.50 = 0.0090

L/W Ratio 2.0 = 0.0100

L/W Ratio 2.50= 0.0105

 

If the length-to-width ratio of the stone you’re marking is not precisely equal to one of the conditions above, apply the nearest value.

Keep in mind that all these methods will give you raw estimates.
