Checking Authenticity Of Gemstones

Authenticity of gemstones

People wear different Gemstones for different reasons. While buying gems, sometimes we feel very distressed that the gemstone we are buying is genuine or not? Because fake gems do not show any remedial effect and they are expensive too.

Gemstones are sometimes identified under sunlight, and sometimes under artificial lighting conditions. Quality check of gemstones can also be performed in chemical laboratories. It takes a lot of effort in determining the gem’s authenticity. However, monitoring quality at a few parameters may help you in choosing the right Gem.

Bubbles In Gemstones

Fake Gemstones have small air bubbles in them. When gems are examined under the light, bubbles inside them are seen in general. Fake and Genuine gems can be varied based on this property.

A few ways to check the quality of gemstones are mentioned below. You can perform these checks at home and surely it will help you a lot in picking out the right gem for yourself.

  • Put the pearl in a water glass. If the beam is coming out of the pearl, then that pearl is genuine.
  • If the fake pearl is rubbed with fodder, it becomes sawdust. But, the real pearl has no effect on it.
  • Putting real pearl in thick Ghee, result in the melting of Ghee.
  • Putting coral in milk reflects red light.
  • When real coral is placed on paper or cotton piece in sunlight, it results in a fire.

  • The presence of the doubling effect is a red signal while buying Blue Sapphire. While inspecting Neelam, if you one more layer of Gem inside then, it is Benitoite not Blue Sapphire.
