Identifying A Real Pearl/ Moti From A Fake Stone

Here are some effective ways to verify if the Pearl is genuine or a fake:

  • The Touch test: A real pearl is always cooler than the surrounding room temperature, provided it is not worn on the body. Even during warm weather conditions, real pearls will feel cool when touched. This differentiates them from fake pearls, which will not be colder than room temperatures & adapt to the surroundings.
  • The tooth test: Rub the pearl against your front teeth. If it is real or natural, you will feel a light irritation or roughness across your teeth. Fake pearls are too smooth & you will not feel much friction while biting them.
  • The Weight test: Fake pearls are lighter. Real pearls are much heavier. Pearls are made of multiple layers of nacre, which is very dense in nature and weighs more than the plastic or raisin material used for making synthetic or fake Pearls.
  • The Bounce Test: A natural Pearl bounces higher on a glass surface when compared with a fake one. If a real Pearl is dropped on a glass from 60 cm of height, the rebound height is around 35 cm. Under the same test conditions, fake Pearls display much lesser rebound heights.
  • The Light test: When light is put on Pearls, real Pearls reflect more light & thus, appear shinier than fake Pearls. Moreover, a real Pearl will reflect light differently when light falls on different areas of the same Pearl. This makes it hard to capture the real color of a natural Pearl on camera. Fake or synthetic Pearls reflect lesser light but reflect it evenly, no matter which part is under consideration.
  • Shape and Size: Real Pearls are not perfectly round or spherical in shape and size. This makes every Pearl unique, as no two Pearls can be of same size or shape. Fake pearls are almost perfectly rounded and spherical. They have overly smooth surfaces & have identical sizes.
  • The fire test: If burnt for some time, a black coating appears on every Pearl, whether real or fake. However, upon wiping off the black burnt coating, if you can still see the pearl inside, it is a real Pearl. A fake pearl would have nothing other than coal after being burnt.
  • The Knife test: Scrape off the top layer of a Pearl with a knife & collect the powder. In case of real Pearls, the powder will feel smooth & the Pearl will still possess its luster. If it is fake, the powder will be rough & you will see a plastic, lusterless inner layer.
