What is the best vessel to store or condition Rudraksha in?
Since Rudraksha are natural seeds with a unique composition, it is best to store them in natural vessels. When conditioning, using mud, glass or wooden bowls are best. Alternatively, gold or silver bowls can be used, if available. When conditioning, it is important not to use copper bowls as the ghee and milk can react to the copper. But it is fine to store Rudraksha in copper when not conditioning. Using plastic to store or condition a Rudraksha is not ideal because plastics can react and leak harmful substances. When wearing Rudraksha, silk thread is the best natural option to use due to its quality and strength. Thin gold or silver chains can also be used if malas are threaded with utmost care to ensure no seeds are cracked or harmed in the process.
