This is probably the most common question we get asked when it comes to crystals. How can you tell the difference between a real crystal and a fake ‘man made/ lab grown’ crystal?
So we decided to put together this list, these are the 7 classic tell tale signs your crystal is a fake:
First start my simply inspecting your crystal and look for signs of:
- too much perfection
- too much of a saturated color
- signs the stone has been dyed like water marks
- no obvious natural signs like grains or itty bitty flecks of other minerals within the stone
- un-natural colors that just don’t seem real
- patterns that are too symmetrical and too precise
- authenticity of the seller
Authentic crystals grow deep deep beneath the earth, they are buried way down underwater, or in darkness for thousands and even millions of years. They soak up all of the powerful energies of creation all around them for longer than we can imagine before finally making their way to the surface and enriching our lives.
The authenticity of your crystals is vital to your spiritual healing ❤️🩹. It’s what gives your crystals their healing powers, not to mention their direct connection to Mother Nature and the divine Universe.
However, many people try to simply create “fake” lab grown crystals and you’d be unable to tell easily which ones are real and which are fake, making counterfeit copies of crystals.
These man made crystals are all-out fake crystals that just do not contain the energies and same healing qualities. Though they may look really really similar they are not at all the same as a genuine crystal. Fake crystals are grown in laboratories using chemical pollutants and industrial processes that allow the crystals to form in lightning-fast time. They’re man made and totally inauthentic.
