How to differentiate between real and fake emeralds?

How to differentiate between real and fake emeralds?

08 Apr, 2022 | Gemstone | Gem Selection

The emerald gemstone is one of the most beautiful gemstones you can ever own. It not only provides the wearer with numerous good benefits, but it also bestows considerable insight and wisdom.


Any onlooker can be attracted by the vivid green colour of emeralds. When purchasing an emerald stone, however, you must ensure that you are purchasing an original emerald rather than a fake emerald, as this would indicate that you have squandered your money. Let's look at the differences between natural emeralds and synthetic emeralds.

 

These are some things that you should consider while buying an emerald to keep yourself from getting hoodwinked.

 

Colour


The first thing we see about any gemstone is its colour. Though it's just a hue it speaks volumes for itself. The colour can greatly help in measuring the authenticity of the stone. When held up to the light real emeralds radiate a pure green or blue-green colour, on the other hand, a fake emerald will show yellow or brown undertones. 

 

Clarity

Keep this point in mind that an emerald is never 100% clear. People tend to believe that emeralds with no inclusion are better, but that's not the case. If an emerald stone is free of any kind of inclusions, it is likely a fake.

 Seamless edges


Authentic emeralds feature good hardness and can't be shattered easily. If your emerald shows brittle and damaged edge it is most likely a fake one.

 

Price

Don't be tricked by sellers who try to sell emeralds at low prices. Emerald is one of the most precious gemstones and is highly expensive. No authentic shop will sell it at a cheaper price. If the seller is willing to offer great discounts just move out of there immediately. 

 

Store these points in your mind, and no seller would be able to trick you ever.
