As per Classics:
MahaPuranam Srimad Devi Bhagavatam by Maharshi Veda Vyasa
(Book IX Chapter VII))
The presiding Deity of the six faced rudraksha is Kartikeya.
(Shiva Purana Chapter XXV)
71. A Rudraksha with six faces is Kartikeya. A man who wears it on the right arm is certainly absolved of the sins of brahmin-slaughter
and the like.
(Shrishti Kand Chapter 57)
A Brahmin wearing six mukhi rudraksha is worshipped by Kings, a Kshatriya (warrior-class) obtains victory and Vaishya-Shudras remain full
with wealth & luxury. For these people Gauri (Parvati) is blissful and remains available like mother. Therefore, the male wearer of six
mukhi becomes a victorious person of the world by his physical power. He becomes great in oratory and keeps patience. In an assembly,
at King’s place and during discussions he remains a great articulator (& debater) having patience. He never becomes pitiful or remains
a weakling. He definitely does not get broken. All these virtues and other similar virtues are in six mukhi rudraksha by wearing it.
Lord Kalagnirudra said: The bead with six faces is of the form of the six-faced Kartikeya or Ganesha and the devotee wearing it attains
the grace of wealth and health, clear intellect and wisdom, and purification.
