Artificial and plastic stones heat ‎up with a little touch. Wet a cotton ball with acetone and hit the rock surface. This material ‎dissolves the artificial color in itself. Check the color difference in the cracks of its surface ‎with the magnifying loop. As a destructive test for azure reconstructed with plastic material, ‎the hot tip of the metal rod gives off an unpleasant plastic odor. These specimens also sink by ‎pressing under the tooth. Be careful when buying azure that has a uniform color without streaks ‎or spots and is very colorful and looks like artificial colors. With the Chelsea Filter ‎Gemological Tool, you can distinguish original azure from synthetic and laboratory. Under ‎Chelsea Filter (Chelsea filter), Natural Lapis lazuli reflects a faint reddish-brown light, while a ‎synthetic lapis lacquer reflects bright red light.‎

Tips to remember when buying natural azure!‎

When the ‎color of the stone you want is dark blue-gray, it is probably not lapis lazuli and it is sodalite. ‎They usually paint low-quality sodalities and sell them as azure! Many imitation lapis lazuli is ‎found in Taiwan. Artificial azure specimens made of golden mottled glass are not visible but ‎are less common in Gilson synthetic specimens. Physically, natural azure rough has a light blue ‎sand color on the glazed porcelain surface. If it's not too pleasant smell half of sulfur smell.‎

‎ Obtained a guarantee from the seller that in case of a negative answer, the gemology ‎laboratory will take it back.‎

Jewelry like Lapis Lazuli is something that gives a sense of perfection to a woman because Lapis Lazuli is one of the most widely used stones that people are using in jewelry for several 100 years. It is not easy enough to differentiate between a fake lapis lazuli and a real lapis lazuli because the world is changing rapidly and people are becoming smarter enough to make the fake copies and trap their customers. The techniques used for making the fake copies of lapis lazuli are becoming truly exceptional with every passing day so it is not easy to tell whether the lapis lazuli that you are wearing is in actual real one or fake. So let’s go through a proper procedure by which you will be able to distinguish a real lapis lazuli with a fake one. This is one of the primary tests that you can make to check whether the lapis lazuli that you are using is real or fake. Make sure that the product you are buying is not cheap in price because lapis lazuli never ever comes in cheap price even an ordinary necklace of lapis lazuli is like above 40-50 dollars and even higher than that. So if you see any product of lapis lazuli which is quite reasonable in price then this is one of the first-ever indications that the product you are buying is not a real one. This is one of the widely used techniques that people are using for several years to make the fake copies of lapis lazuli. In order to check whether your lapis lazuli is dyed or not, all you need is acetone or alcohol. Now wipe your lapis lazuli with alcohol or acetone, at this stage of cleaning, if your stone leaves its original color then it is definitely a poor quality and fake product and if it does not change its color at the time of wiping, then that means it is an original and quality lapis lazuli. An indication of the fake lapis lazuli is that you will find it in a too much uniform blue color and it will obviously be cheaper in price. A real lapis lazuli is found in two types of colors, either it is in a pale blue color which is commonly found but still not in a cheaper price or it is found in a royal blue color which is rare. If you want to know that your lapis lazuli is real or not then this is one of the most important steps to check the quality and authenticity of your product. The original and quality lapis lazuli will surely have Golden flecks and Swirls of White Color as its beautiful pattern whereas the fake lapis lazuli is completely different from that of the real one due to the reason that it is greyish blue in color and the pattern of this fake lapis does not contain any golden flecks and white swirls on it. This test can be termed as the hardness test for assuring the quality of your Lapis Lazuli, so in order to validate your product, you must perform this test. An original lapis lazuli stone gets easily scratched by a knife or any other sharp object whereas a fake lapis lazuli stone does not get scratched by a knife or any other sharp object when applied on its surface. You can simply test the quality of your Lapis Lazuli by testing it with Acetone.  You can perform this test by simply rubbing acetone on your Lapis Lazuli stone. The color of an original lapis lazuli never fades away. While rubbing acetone on your stone, you will feel the changes in color, if the color of your stone fades away then that means it is a fake and copy of lapis lazuli stone whereas if it’s color does not fade away then that means this is an original lapis lazuli. With the help of the above-mentioned tips, you will be able to tell if the lapis lazuli that you are using is real or fake. Every user must consider these tips and techniques while they purchase a Lapis Lazuli product because you should never compromise on the quality.
