Fake Sapphire

No view

If you 're not an expert, it is very hard to tell a real sapphire from a synthetic or something relatively new to the market, "Lead Glass Filled Sapphires". Below are some examples of each of these, so you can determine whether the sapphire you have is natural or not..Gems of equal hardness can 't scratch each other, so if both are real sapphires then nothing will happen. If the real sapphire leaves a scratch on the second sapphire, then the second one is not real, or is at least of lower quality. This test can damage a synthetic sapphire, so be wary .
