Love With Crystal V – How to Identify True and False Crystal?

There are many methods to identify or check a piece of crystal jewelry was made by natural crystal or false ones...


 (1)  Through Eyes:


In the forming process of natural crystal, they often have been impacted by the environment and contained a few impurities, in which when viewing in the sun we can see a touch of small and symmetrical across strips and catkin shape materials, while false crystal jewelry are generally smelted by defective quartz and glass residues, and produced through a polishing and colored up process, so in which there are no symmetrical across strips and either catkin shape materials.


(2) Licking with Tongue:


Even if in the hot dog days of summer, licking the face of natural crystal with your tongues, you can feel the cold and cool feelings, while there no such feelings about false crystals.


(3) Method of illumination:


View natural crystals erected in the sun, you can see their beautiful sheens and luster regardless of which point of view, while false crystals are incapable of.


(4) Hardness:


The hardness of natural crystal is excellent, there will no marks left on if you use a gravel scratched on it gently, if streaks were left on, it must be a fake.


(5) Checking with a Polarizer:


Showing value variations when rotated by 360-degree under a polarizer are natural crystals, while showing no changes are false pieces.


(6) Two-Color Identification: 


Natural amethyst has two colors, while false amethysts have no.


(7) Checking with a Magnifying Glass:


Checking the crystal with a 10-times magnifying glass, in which if bubbles could be found, it can be judged basically as a false one.


(8) Checking with Hairs:


Putting the crystal jewelry on a hair, in which if a double shadow of the hair could be seen through your naked eyes, the crystal can be judged as a true one for natural crystal embodies with the character of birefringence namely double refraction.


(9) Detecting by a Thermal Conductivity Analyzer:


When checking the natural crystal with a thermal conductivity analyzer regulated to its green 4, the instrument's indicative frame will rise to the yellow 2, while using it to detect false ones there won't show any rising. When the detecting area of the checked natural crystal added, the analyzer's indicative degree will rise to yellow 1.

How do i clean my amethyst crystal cluster?

I have recently acquired a amethyst crystal cluster. The crystals are formed on a rock base measuring about 4 inches in length. It is in fairly good condition and the crystals have obviously been treated/polished in the past. However it is very dusty and some of the crystals have a thin layer of dirt on them due to sitting around for a long time. I was wondering what the best method of cleaning the dust out of all the crevases between the crystals is and also cleaning the crystals themselves so they are shinier again. anyone help me out? i dont know if there is a particular way to do this e.g with certain acids or equipment. also what not to do would be a big help, and how to keep it in a good condition from now on would be great. much appreciated

Our son cleans his with soap and water, but he does it fairly regularly so the dirt doesn't build up. He has a pretty sturdy cluster and the soap and water never present a problem. A bit of alcohol might get off some of the heavier dirt on the amethyst. Good luck. I bet it will be beautiful!
