We do not mix Rudraksha beads with any stones to make the mala become a piece of fashion jewellery, Rudraskshas can not be mixed with any gems as they loose their energy and function.
All our Rudrakshas are put together the tradional way as mentioned in the scriptures to give maximum benefit. In the SKANDA PURAN it mentions the only additions allowed are pearls, ruby, spatikam crystals, silver, gold and vaiduryam (lapiz lazuli).
Often the higher expensive could end up being fakes. Certificates have no meaning, as they are often created by the seller. Be aware when purchasing 10 mukhi and above. If it sounds cheap then it often faked by cutting extra lines. So 10 mukhi could easily become 16 mukhi by carefully cutting 6 extra lines.
This rudraksha looks impressive being 38 mukhi, first test it failed to float in a glass of water. Close examination the mukhis look unnatural, too precise. It is constructed using many segments of the other Rudraksha beads to create one large bead and held together with glue. When sliced this fake Rudraksha, once can see the join of a different piece placed carefully to match the contour of the bead.
To reveal the glue these two beads were boiled for 15 minutes, the genuine bead on the right did not change colour while the fake lost its colour and revealed the white deposits of glue.
The miraculous properties of the Rudraksha are mentioned in the ancient Indian scriptures such as Shiva mahapuran and Jabal Upanishad. The fruit is blue in colour but can be green or turn purple with age. The trees originated in South East Asia, namely Java, Borneo, Sumatra and later the seeds were planted in Nepal and other parts of India.
