Rudraksha Mala’s and the seeds used to make them have been steeped in well sprung mystery for ages now. Its supernatural powers have been debated by spiritualists & non-believers for a while… However, one thing that has never been debated is how rare these seeds are. The rudraksha seeds in question are distinguished based on the number of mukhis present on the seed. These mukhis are commonly known to range from 1 to 24 mukhi rudrakhsa’s. Recently however, 27 mukhi rudraksha seeds were discovered. But more on that later.

rarest Rudraksha Seeds

The seeds can be found growing on a tree known as Elaeocarpus ganitrus roxb. There are about 300 unique species of this plant and about 35 of these species are found in India. They are mostly found in Nepal, Burma, Thailand and Indonesia. The ones in India have slowly disappeared as these trees were used to make railway sleepers. Thus, depleting the source of these rare seeds and as a result adding to the rarity.

Now, without further a due, lets get to the rarity of these seeds. Starting with the cheapest & the most common. 4,5 & 6 mukhi rudraksha seeds are the easiest to find from the lot. These seeds constitute at least 70% of all seeds harvested in a year. As a result of this availability, these seeds can be found from as little as Rs 50.

Rudraksha benefits

Next in line are the 10 to 19 Mukhi Rudraksha seeds. These seeds are not nearly as common as the ones stated above. They are found in relatively low numbers and hence, they can set you back anywhere between 10,000 to 50,000. It’s important to note that prices vary based on demand as these seeds and the knowledge of them is not that common.

Last, but definitely not least, we can come to the rarest mukhi rudraksha’s on the planet. 20 Mukhi rudraksha onwards, the seeds are near impossible to find. These seeds are found each year in extremely low quantities. Another seed that falls into the extremely rare category is the 1 Mukhi rudraksha. This is considered to be a form of Lord Shiva himself and some say it’s even harder to find than the mukhi seeds starting from the number 20. However not as rare as the recently discovered 27 Mukhi rudrakshas seeds that were found in Nepal. The value of these seeds cannot be comprehended due to the extreme rarity. One could say they are priceless.

Fun Fact: The “Nakshatra Mala” is a mala that has been made using all the mukhi rudrakshas seeds in the world. This ranges from 1 to 27! The value of this mala has been estimated at 35 Crores and is easily the rarest & most expensive mala in the world.
