You may wear this gemstone if it matches with your needs. But one thing that you should do firstly is to consult with your astrologer. He will read your horoscope and will recommend an apt gemstone for you. It will not go smooth if you wear a talisman of your choice as it is not necessary that all the gems suit every person.
