# Relation between position of stars and locations of gemstones? [closed]

A theory has been said that the patterns and positions help identify where valuable gemstones are hidden. I am wondering if this has any truth in it.

No truth at all. Where did you get this? –  TheBluegrassMathematician Apr 24 '14 at 15:26

@RyanMcGaha: A mass that large that close is actually rather unreasonable, but let's roll with it anyway. Take the gravitational tidal forces on the Earth due to the Moon (orbital distance $R$) as the standard of comparison. The ones due to the Sun are $(M/m)(R/1\,\mathrm{AU})^3 \sim 1/2$ as large. Say the "size" of the solar system as roughly the heliopause distance $120\,\mathrm{AU}$, so that the tidal forces of this hypothetical mass are at most $3\times 10^{-7}$ of the Moon's. –  Stan Liou Apr 25 '14 at 5:17
