Identifying A Real Red Coral/ Moonga From A Fake Stone

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

  • The Color: The color of a natural red coral gemstone should not be too dark or vivid. It is usually a sober shade, with very little shine to it.
  • The Temperature: A natural Red Coral gemstone is cool to touch even at room temperature. Place the gemstone in your hands for some time and feel them. If a stone feels hot or warmer after some time, it is most likely a synthetic or a fake stone.
  • Scratches: Always check a red coral gemstone for any existing scratches or dent marks. Any inclusions or scratches in the stone mean that the stone is either fake or damaged. Using it in either cases can bring malefic effects.
  • Hardness: Red Coral is a fragile gemstone & hence, very prone to scratches or breakage. Hence, if the stone in your hand feels too hard & strong, it is likely to be unnatural & synthetic.
  • Bubbles: Scrutinize a red coral under a magnifier & check for any bubbles inside the stone. If any bubbles or smudges are present inside the stone, then the stone is likely a low quality product & will not give the desired results.
  • For gathering more knowledge about whether your coral is an original or fake, visit to a gemologist or gem expert.
