According to our scriptures like Shiva purana, Skand purana etc. the creator of Rudraksha is lord Shiva himself. The word ‘ Rudraksha’ is made of two words ‘ Rudra ‘ and ‘ Aksha’ . The word Rudra means lord Rudra and the word Aksha means eyes or Ashru. In this way Rudraksha is associated with lord Shiva and his tears. There is a <span>story</span> in context to the origin of Rudraksha in Skanda Mahapurana. According to which, Rudraksha is created from the tears falling from the eyes of lord Shiva himself. That is the reason Rudraksha is considered as the incarnation of Lord Shiva.

If we talk about the structure of this pious fruit, there are straight lines on Rudraksha which are natural. The faces of Rudraksha are counted on the basis of these straight lines on Rudraksha. For example, if there are five vertical lines on Rudraksha that is called five faced Rudraksha.

It is very difficult to identify the originality of Rudraksha . Now days everything is commercialized and Rudraksha is not an exception. What people do they cut the lines of Rudraksha and join these two Rudrakshas in order to look them one. This is called one faced Rudraksha. As one faced rudraksha is very expensive. One faced Rudraksha, Gauri Shankar and Tridev rudraksha are prepared & sold in market to make money. This Rudraksha is rare & very costly also.

It is said, to judge the genuinity of rudraksha, Rudraksha should be dropped in water, if the rudraksha is genuine it will sink in the water. But you should be careful while doing this experiment. As lead is filled in artificial Rudraksha to make it heavy, that rudraksha settles down in the bottom of the vessel. In this way, a genuine Rudraksha should not float on the water.

To know the purity of Gauri Shankar Rudraksha keep it in boiled water for <span>ten</span> or fifteen minutes. If it is artificial, it shall separate due to the temperature of the water. There is one more way to know of its purity. Try to separate two Gauri Shankar Rudrakshas, if they are artificially joined, they shall separate. Scratch the Rudraksha with a needle or with some sharp edged thing. If the fibers are seen on the skin of Rudraksha in that case Rudraksha is genuine.

Generally Rudrakshas are found from one faced to fourteen faces. But it can have more than fourteen faces also. Rudraksha is a fruit grown on a tree which has natural lines on it, so more than fourteen faces Rudrakshas also exist. Generally, 21 faced Rudraksha also exists but they are very rare and hardly found that is the reason they are worth seen & collecting.
