Identification Of Rudraksha

The Ruraksha is a naturally bead. Hence here is demand of Rudraksha day by day increases. Due to this brokers have started built-up rarely faceted beads such as the one faced Rudraksha body. The Beads of Areca nut, Nutmeg or Tulsi are to craze for making Rudraksha Beads. Some brokers have a branch rooted in them synthetically to give a real look. Except this, suppliers sell fake one Mukhis which have Serpent, Trishul, Lingam etc imprinted on them. Hence identification of Rudraksha is must.

Fake Rudraksha:

Before purchasing the Rudraksha bead, it should be kept in mind-

Five Mukhi Rudraksha are easily found in nature and in rich amount.

  • The 2,3,4,6 and 7 Mukhis Rudraksha is found richly hence no much costly.

  • One Mukhi Rudraksha in round variety has never been found till date and is thus a myth.

  • Half Moon of One Mukhi Rudraksha is genuine and their price is low.

  • One Mukhi Round Rudraksha is extremely selling bead and is faked in more forms by dishonest suppliers.

  • Some of the beads have a stem rooted in them synthetically to give a real look.

  • Seller sells fake One Mukhi which has the sign of serpent, trishul, lingam etc. while a real Rudraksha bead does not have these markings.

  • The Gauri Shankar Rudraksha are faked by attach together two Rudraksha beads.

  • Some of the fake Rudraksha are complete by carving extra lines in lower Mukhi beads to get the rare and expensive higher Mukhi beads.

Methods for Identification of Real Rudraksha:

It is very simple to identify a real Rudraksha. The version of it increases the importance and price. It is made synthetically and the artificial Rudrakshas are also being sold in market.There are many methods of testing a genuine (or fake) Rudraksha:

Cut Test:
It is most reliable methods and for this cut the Rudraksha bead horizontally. When it will be cut one can find the same number of section as the number of lines. If it is not then drawback of this method is that bead gets damaged.

Properties Test:
This test gives information that whether the beads show properties like inductance, capacitance, conduction of electric current etc.

Copper Coin Test:
Generally it is believed that when a Rudraksha bead is placed between two copper coins it will slightly rotate either clockwise or the anticlockwise direction. This phenomenon occurs due to physical and magnetic properties of the Rudraksha beads. Only expert people are good for it.

Eye test:
Some times the fake or the artificial Rudraksha may seem same as real one but these fake Rudraksha facets can not be made as real as those present on the real Rudraksha. This is a natural partition on Rudraksha which just like the closed lips with deep natural. See these deep linings (facets) with the help of a magnifying glass (Lenses) and thus can be easily distinguish a real Rudraksha.

Water test:
Some of the rare Rudraksha beads like Gauri Shankar Rudraksha or a Trijuti can be made by synthetically joining two or three Rudraksha with help of paste etc. if here is any of hesitation this Rudraksha bead, kept in boiling water for some minutes. A sharp streak will take place at the joint in case of synthetic Rudraksha.

Here is another water test which is conducted as well-

  • Boil it for some hours; if it is a real Rudraksh then it will not have any effect on rudraksh bead. If it is synthetic or two Rudrakshs are joined together synthetically (in case of Gauri shanker bead), they will get divided.

  • If a raw but real Rudraksha may float in the water, and a non real ones made out of wood soak with lead or by interfere a real Rudraksha may go down. An unripe but genuine Rudraksha will also float in water.

Hence none of these tests are perfect. The best way is to purchase a Rudraksha from a trusted approved supplier.
