However the charges personally feel costlier the charges for colored stone (blue sapphire) you can check from this link http://giionline.com/charges_for_lab_service.html from the same place they are going to get you certificate. GII is an “Indian Gemological Institute”. However, charges mentioned by them are costly as members get good discount from those labs also, so you can also ask for some discount.

I have some other remedies which are quite powerful as well like astro puzzles which can control planets effects if performed whole heartedly.
