The Early History > Indian Jewellery > The Early History  |  Print  |  E-mail a friend
More than 5,000 years ago, the civilizations of the Indus Valley employed architects with great interest in minerals and gems. We find discussions about the laws of energy in space, the Earth's magnetic field, the planetary system, and even gravity in their writings on geomancy in the famous Vasati.

The application of these ideas to architecture involved the use of minerals and precious stones.
1400 BC the Indo-Europeans refined the ideas in the Vasati and they collected their knowledge in the Vedas. In the oldest of these

Sanskrit documents, the Rig-Veda (after 1300 BC), the priest-poet refers to the power of precious stones to influence subtle energies and to connect the Earth to the other planets and stars in the solar system.

In the Jatak Parijat, they even assigned precious stones to the various gods. Based on these convictions the Vedic Indo-Europeans developed the medical teachings of Ayurveda.

These revolved around activating the self-healing powers of the diseased body with mineral powders, among others, which were superstitiously believed to restore harmony between the soul, body and mind.

The Indians were even able to pulverise the diamonds mined in Deccan in southern India. The oil-bound diamond powder was sold as an abrasive as far away as Europe.
