We have two types of Rudraksha i.e. Special Fine Quality andExcellent Quality. Both these types of Rudraksha are Genuine and Pure NepaliRudraksha. The aforesaid qualities of the Rudraksha are determined on the basisof their size and clarity of faces (Mukhas). The Special Fine QualityRudrakshas are classified based on twin criteria of their bigger size andbetter clarity than the Excellent Quality Rudrakshas.
