How to identify a real gemstone?

It is important to identify whether or not the Gemstone is pure. Follow these simple steps to identify:-

  1. Have a close look at it with naked eye, (preferably in the daylight. You don't have to use microscope during this time) Make sure the stone has no crack or impurity.
  2. The easiest way to identify a real gemstone is through its color. It is a combination of hue, tone and saturation. You just need to make a general observation. Look if it is shining or if it is dull. In case you can see the shine with the naked eyes, it is not pure.
  3. Feel the surface of the stone. A rugged stone should not be identified as a gemstone.
  4. If a stone is flexible, i.e. if its shape can be changed, it would more likely be an ore than a gemstone.
  5. There are synthetic stones, which exactly looks like a gemstone but they do not have the properties of a gemstone. Fingerprint patterns can be observed on these stones,which shows that they are not gemstones.
  6. Check whether the stone is transparent or not.To check the transparency of a stone, check whether the light passes through it or not.
  7. Damage tests can be done to identify whether the stone is real or not, but if you want to \ preserve the shape of the stone, you can avoid the tests.
