How can you tell if Larimar is real?

About 90% of Larimar that is sold on the market is fake. SoulKu has our Larimar regularly tested by a GIA-trained Graduate Gemologist to ensure our Larimar is genuine. Always ask about the source of Larimar. If it's from anywhere other than the Dominican Republic, it is fake. Also, check the opacity of the stone. Genuine Larimar stones are opaque, cloudy, and hazy. Light does not pass through a real Larimar stone. Lift the stone up to a light source (natural light is the best and most accurate) to observe if light goes through the stone. If it does, that is an obvious sign the stone is a fake.
