Check color

Like most Citrine Gemstone, tends to be relatively uniform in hue throughout. Therefore, a good way to spot a quality stone is to look closely at the color of the stone. If you notice sudden color changes in different parts of the stone, it may be a fake.


Check transparency

Citrine is known to cleanse the eyes. This usually means that there are no imperfections or imperfections visible to the naked eye. Place the gem under bright white light and examine it from different angles. If the stone has visible spots or inclusions, it may be a fake.



Find bubbles

Not surprisingly, tinted glass is one of the most common materials used to create fake citrine. The surest way to see the difference is to hold the gemstone up to bright light and look at it under a microscope or jeweler’s loupe. If you see tiny air bubbles in the stone, it’s probably fake. It is important to note that in most cases only experienced professionals can tell the difference between real citrine and counterfeit citrine with 100% certainty.
