Rudraksha Found In Nature: Seeds, Leaves and Trees

Rudraksha plant scientifically are called as Elaeocarpus which is a large genius of broad-leaved evergreen trees. The trees are almost 50ft to 200ft in height growing in the North Indian River Plain of the Himalayas to South-East Asia, Nepal and Indonesia. Once the seeds are planted, they grow into trees (15 to 16 years) that start giving fruits similar to ‘Blueberries’. In its original form, a Rudraksha is this fruit with a blue husk covering the seed (bead). The blue color is not caused by pigmentation but evolves as the trees grow, bearing the fruits in around 3-4 years. The fruit is kept in water for a number of days and then Rudraksha is taken out after peeling off the pulp. Rudraksha beads contain 50.031 % carbon, 0.95% nitrogen, 17.897% hydrogen and 30.53% oxygen. The tree has nearly 36 sister species, including Rudraksha. Rudraksha, being a plant, is specially worn without contact with metal; thus on a cord or thong rather than a chain. In the single tree Rudraksha beads comes in all different mukhis (faces) at the same time but higher Mukhis or faces are very rare to find where most of Rudraksha beads are Five Mukhi. The beads come in seasonal pattern every year around mid-August to mid-October.

Science of Rudraksha: Modern Research and Studies
Rudraksh Bead have Electromagnetic, Paramagnetic, Diamagnetic and Dynamic Polarity or the ability to change its polarity. Rudraksh also have Anti Ageing Properties based on their Electromagnetism. Have certain Electromagnetic and Inductive properties and when worn over the heart they send out corresponding signals differing for different mukhis to the brain, activating or controlling certain brain chemicals and neurotransmitters thereby inducing states of mind as described in ancient scriptures.
