There are many duplicate or of cheap material available in the market so make sure you buy from a genuine source. You may have to pay more but you know it is genuine. Always perform a cleansing of remedies to remove old energies – clean with Holy water, offer Diya/incense/flowers and chant your favorite Mantra before installing them.
