The bracelet is made from the seeds of the sacred Rudraksha tree found in India and many parts of Asia. The seeds are thought to be the tears of the god Shiva, the creator. These seeds will bring on compassion, understanding and integrity. Strung with very dark and beautiful Amythyst beads, this bracelet is very beautiful and extremely powerful. Rudraksha beads bring equilibrium to the body and soothe the spirit. They may change colour slightly as they mix with your body oils. You can choose to oil them yourself with sandalwood oil to protect and nourish them. Rudraksha beads will not wear out and will only grow in power over time for the wearer. Yogis around the world and for many centuries have worn and loved these beads, enjoy!
