Finding the Imperfections Using Magnification Test

Well, if you find the imperfections, then it's perfect. What's one of the particular thing of a diamond? That it's a naturally occurring rock and so it comes with its unique imperfections. The irregular shape and uneven shine are a mark of its originality. However, these imperfections are not visible to the naked eye. You must use a high-powered magnifying glass or a jeweller's microscope to find them. If a diamond is perfectly shaped, has rounded edges without any inclusions (the microscopic imperfections), then you can deduce that it's not a real diamond.



Abrasion Test Using Sandpaper

Diamonds are the hardest stones available. And, hence it's said that only a diamond can cut another diamond. This is another way of authenticating your diamond - using sandpaper. Scratch your diamond with the sandpaper and if it results in any abrasions on the rock, then it's not a real diamond. An original diamond will shine clear and bright like before.



Dazzling Effect Using Reflection Test

When you hold the diamond against the sunlight you will find it to dazzle with white and grey reflections but a pretentious stone will reflect with the rainbow sparkle effect. A simple method that can be tested in daylight.



Reading Test Using Newspaper

If you hold the diamond stone above a newspaper and if you can read the paper, then it's definitely not a real diamond, as a real diamond is so strong that a ray of light cannot pass in a clear path. It reflected multiple times before passing out. And thus reading anything through a diamond cut is next to impossible.



Condensation Test Using Fog

Being an excellent conductor a real diamond does not fog up. Hold a diamond and expose it to a whip of warm air, this you can do with a blow of warm air through your mouth. If the stone catches a layer of fog over it then it's not a real diamond. This is one most the easiest and effective way to recognise a real diamond.
