Know the difference between bhadraksha and rudraksha . 

Sacred seeds and their trees are referred to by the names Bhadraksha and Rudraksha. The purple olive Elaeocarpus genus of trees, and more especially Elaeocarpus angustifolius, are the source of the rudraksha, a fruit nut. The Elaeocarpus species has more than 500 variations, but only a small number of plants bear fruit, and the Rudraksha nut is made from these fruits. The Elaeocarpus Ganitrus species found in Indonesia is the world's largest producer of Rudraksha beads; the beadsrudratre are referred to as Biji Ganitri in the local tongue. These smooth, tiny beads have an average size of approximately 8 mm and range in size from 2 to 14 mm.  

The most widely used species of bead in Nepal is Elaeocarpus Sphaericus, which has thorny protrusions, deeper ridges, and larger size proportions, averaging 18 mm over a range of 14 to 35 mm. In Hinduism, rudraksha beads are revered, and strings of them are frequently used for chanting and meditation. In addition to their many other uses, they are also employed in the preparation of spiritual jewelry for both physical and mental healing. They are highly prized because of their healing qualities and spiritual importance.  

The beads have the characteristics listed below, which are the sole reason why ancient scriptures highly praise them and value them for prayer, meditation, yoga, and healing.The fruit's skin is a vivid blue color. Rather of pigmentation, it is linked to a natural phenomena known as "structural coloration."The center hollow of the beads becomes a hole after cleaning.The surface of the beads has several faces or facets called mukhis that can change. These faces appear as ridges on Nepalese beads and as white lines on Indonesian beads.Every face represents a seed that is hidden beneath it in a compartment.  

In general, bhadraksha beads resemble Rudraksha beads in appearance, but they are bigger in size and have more thorny protrusions on their surface. The Elaeocarpus Serratus species includes the South Indian and Sri Lankan variants, which yield gritty, elongated oval beads resembling cashew nuts. They're commonly offered for sale as one mukhi half moon (Kaju dana). These trees also contain 2, 3, and 4 mukhi elongated beads, or chapata dana. The giant beads produced by E. grandis species trees, which are native to the Papua New Guinea and Southeast Asia, range in size from 25 to 60 mm. Elaecarpus Oblongus trees are found in Uttaranchal, India, and they yield bhadraksha beads, which are usually sold in quantities of one, two, or three. In contrast to Rudraksha beads, Assam trees yield two mukhi bhadraksha beads, which are heavier and more prickly.  

Unlike Rudraksha, the bhadraksha beads have the following characteristics:  
Brown skin or no skin at all on top of the fruit  
no opening in the middle. It pierces through the bead's center seed when drilled.  
The number of limited/fixed ridges on a tree's beads can range from 1 to a maximum of 9.  
Most of these Bhadraksha beads are just decorative and lack the potent qualities of the Rudraksha beads; the ridges do not correspond to a compartment containing seed within the bead.  
There are two widely recognized variants of Elaeocarpus angustifolius: Elaeocarpus ganitrus, which is found throughout the Indonesian region, and E. sphaericus, which is found in Nepal. It's a big evergreen tree with wavy-serrated leaves, creamy white flowers, and bright blue drupe fruit that's almost spherical in shape. It frequently has buttress roots. It goes by several names, including the blue marble tree, genitrix, Indian bead tree, wooden begar, and utrasum bean tree. The cleaned pits of this tree's fruit are called rudraksha in Hindi (from Sanskrit: rudrākṣa, meaning 'eyes' or 'Rudra's teardrops') and are commonly used as prayer beads, especially in Hinduism.  
Ancient literature like as the Jabala Upanishad, Srimad Devi Bhagawatam, and Shiva Purana make extensive reference to them and extol their virtues in terms of healing and spiritual advancement.They are particularly attractive and suitable to wear as jewelry beads because of their smooth yet prickly structure, unique Mukhi lines that are visible outside as lines or grooves, and natural hole.
