Real Vs. Fake Rudraksha

In the interest of consumer protection and public education Rudradweep presents these pictures of Counterfeit rudraksha beads that have been purchased in the past and kept. These beads are sold in large quantities in India and outside by unscrupulous people taking advantage of the craze of the customers to procure them . The typical price at which they are sold ranges from $100 to $50,000. Rudra Centre does not trade in round one mukhis as they are not available at all . Even if you buy them for several 1000 dollars or from any ashrams or any reliable person , it would not be genuine as it has never been produced till date by any Tree in Nepal or Indonesia. It advices the people to not go in search for this Rudraksha , just because it is rare. Half moon 1 mukhi is available easily as a low cost substitute . Hence it is sold at low price from Rudra Centre although there are people who sell this same bead for price as much as $1100 . For 1 mukhi round enquiries , we sell 1 mukhi from Java which exhibits similar properties as glorified for One mukhi in Puranas.

UNDERDEVELOPED 3 OR 5 MUKHI with One Natural mukh

Below pictures are of underdeveloped 3 Mukhi and 5 Mukhi Rudrakshas which are having only one Mukh on the outer surface. On seeing the X Ray pictures of these beads one can see very clearly that they have actually 3 or 5 seeds inside. These types of Rudrakshas are available in Nepal for around USD 45. Please note that these beads are absolutely natural and no tempering has been done with the bead, but these beads cannot be considered as Eka Mukhi Rudraksha because in X Ray pictures the seeds inside these beads are more than one. In some case it is 5 seeds and in some case it is 3 seeds.
