The Beauty Of Collector Nepali Rudraksha Beads
Rudraksha beads are highly revered for their divine and powerful healing properties that bring about a sense of balance between the mind, body and soul. These have been worn since times immemorial for health, spirituality, peace and for mantra japa. But did you know that there are different kinds of rudraksha beads out there? Most Rudraksha beads are seeds of the fruit that grows on Rudraksha trees, found commonly in Southern Asian Islands of Nepal, Java, Sumatra, Bali, Iran, Timor and Borneo. When it comes to rudraksha beads, around 70% come from Indonesia and only 25% come from Nepal, while the remaining 5% come from India. Not only are Collector Nepali Rudraksha Beads rarer, these are also larger in size and believed to be more potent, faster to act, and have a more beautiful formation.
What Are Collector Nepali Rudraksha Beads?
Large size Rudraksha Beads from Nepal are beautifully formed and come from 1 Mukhi to 21 Mukhi. “Mukhi’ means the number of seeds present inside each bead. The Rudraksha beads from Nepal are larger, well thorny with several projections and have clearly grooved faced. They have well formed, clear mukhis lines embedded deep in the outer surface, and their size can vary from 14mm- 40mm, with 20mm considered to be average size. On the other hand, Java beads are much smaller in size with smoother surface and mukhi lines visible as white lines from one hole to the other, very close to the surface and not etched deep. Their sizes vary from 2mm-20mm, with average size 12mm. Hence, it is very easy to differentiate between the large size Rudraksha Beads from Nepal and their smaller Java cousins. Nepalese big size rudraksha beads have a natural hole in the centre of the bead which is a hollow cavity through which these beads are strung into bracelets and rosaries. These collector items require no manual drilling, hence are the most authentic, auspicious, strong and pious.
These beads are easily made into:
- • Japa Malas
- • Kalpavriksha Bracelets
- • Protection Bracelets
- • Healing Bracelets
- • Wisdom Pendants
Are There Any Special Benefits Of These Big Size Rudraksha Beads?
The Java Rudraksha bead is smaller and lighter in colour. On the other hand, the Collector Nepali Rudraksha Beads are darker and larger. Scientifically there is not much difference between the two varieties as they have similar internal structure, though the beads from Nepal are definitely more of a Collectors’ Item simply because they are rarer. However, many experts believe that due to lesser surface area and lesser projections, positive effects through Nepal beads start becoming noticeable much faster when compared to Java beads. On the other hand, the large size Rudraksha Beads from Nepal are clearer far more superior to the Rudraksha beads that are sourced from Haridwar, South India and Srilanka, as those beads found to have no natural hole, and are also produced only in a limited variety of mukhis. These trees closer to home only produce rudraksha beads with 1 mukhi half moon, 2 mukhi, 3 mukhis, and very rarely 4,5,6,7 and 8 mukhis, though never higher. Hence, these big size Rudraksha beads from Nepal are clearer far more beneficial. The rarity of these beads makes them a potent Collectors’ Item, as it is not easy to source them from anywhere.
