There are two types of rudraksha orgin. Rudraksha from Nepal and Rudraksha from Indonesia. Rudraksh is available from 2 heads to 27 heads. The five chief Rudrakshas are easily and abundantly found. The round type of one-sided Rudraksha has never been found till date and thus it is a myth. In its place is sold a Rudraksh named Arkhchandra which is genuine and belongs to the family tree of Rudraksh. This bead is easily available and does not cost much. However, there are suppliers who take advantage of the rarity of 1-headed Rudraksh and sell this crescent variety at exorbitant prices. Round 1 head Rudraksh, however, is the best-selling bead and is counterfeit in many forms by unscrupulous suppliers. Many of these beads are made from berries and betel nuts and betel nuts. To give them a real look, a stem is artificially attached to them. In addition, some suppliers sell fake 1 head with Nag, Trishul, Lingam etc. written on it. A real Rudraksha does not have these marks. 2,3,4,6 and 7 Chief Rudrakshas are found in abundance so they are not expensive. Imitation Rudraksha is made by making extra lines in these lower face beads to get the rare and high priced high face beads. Besides, some honest people make Gauri Shankar Rudraksh fake by sticking two Rudraksh beads together. But with a little experience and awareness, they can be re-identified.
