According to Ancient Sacred texts –

As per Shiva Puran (Ref. 1), Rudraksha of the size of embolic myrobalan (Dhatriphal or Amla) is the best and the one having size of fruit of jujube tree (Badriphala) is of medium quality. The meanest (Inferior) variety of the bead is the one having the size of a gram. Rudraksha of even size , glossy, firm, thick and with many thorn-like protrusions yield the desired results. Six types of Rudraksha are to be discarded: those defiled by worms, are cut and broken, have no thorn like protrusions, have cracks and are not round. The one having natural hole is the best and the one in which it is to be bored through human effort is of medium quality. Shrimad Devibhagwat (Ref. 2) states: "A rudraksha with the size of embolic myrobalan is highly meritorious and is the best of all. A rudraksha bead of the size of ber (Jujube fruit) is of medium quality and the one the size of a gram is of mean quality. Lustrous and thorny rudraksha of equal size are the best ones. Thornless, worm eaten, uneven, non-spherical beads are forbidden. Rudrakshas having natural hole is the best and the one which requires human effort for making a hole is of medium quality. Rudraksha should be of spherical shape and if rubbed against any rough surface it should leave a gold-colored streak." Rudrakshajabalopanishad (Ref. 3) mentions that Rudrakhsa the size of Amla (Embolic myrobalan) is the best. The one having the size of jujube (Ber) is of medium quality and the smallest the size of a gram (Chana) is the worst. Therefore, one may conclude that the bigger-sized beads are better than smaller ones. It is clear from these three ancient epics that only round variety of Rudraksha having large size that of amla (15mm to 30 mm in diameter) are better and they should have a natural hole. Its surface should be thorny, hard and glossy. Due to the increasing awareness of the immense benefits and healing powers of Rudrakshas its demand is increasing day by day but, due to less availability of higher mukhi rudrakshas (11 to 21 Mukhi) and certain rare Rudrakshas like Ganesha, Gauri-Shankar and Sawar, various means are being followed to fake them (Like tampering with the outer shell to create artificial extra mukhis or joining pieces of cheaper Rudrakshas to make it into a higher mukhi fake rudraksha. Totally artificial Rudrakshas are also very commonly being sold now-a-days). It is also very important to check the internal seeds, magnetic energy, Temperature test and Aura of the Rudrakshas to differentiate between ordinary and highly potent and effective rudrakshas.
