Donating Gems to Appease Harmful Planets
Most astrological practicioners agree that gems should be used to enhance a person's good (anukul) planet, but some are unsure what should be done to appease harmful (pratikul) planets. We began searching the ancient esoteric books for the preferred method by which jyotish quality gems could be used to appease debilitated or otherwise harmful (pratikul) planet(s), and found that there is indeed one method that has been prescribed. It is the practice of Ratna-Arpana, or DONATING a fine gem for a harmful planet to a specified recipient at a specific time with a specific seed mantra.
Using this system greatly simplifies the prescription of jyotish gems:
For a good (anakul) planet, a gem is to be accepted
It is amazingly simple - gems are appropriate in all cases, but must be used in entirely different ways. Everyone already understands that gems for favorable planets are to be worn, but were uncertain what should be done to appease harmful planets. The ancient texts point the way - donate the gem to a specified recipient, and solve the problem of the harmful planet.
Following is the information needed to pacify harmful planets by donating a gem:
Om hram hrim hraum sah suryaya namah. ---7 times.
RESULT: The planetary deity Surya is pleased increasing courage and notoriety. Relief from any solar problems caused by Surya, the Sun, when he is ill placed.

MERCURY: Propitiation of Mercury (Wednesday). Donate emerald (or another fine green gem like tourmaline) to a poor student on Wednesday at noon, while reciting Budha seed mantra:
