Is my kyanite bracket a fake if it magnifies?

+1 vote

Hi- I have recently bought a kyanite bracket from Etsy, it was shipped from Canada. It has the translucent features however I am concerned it maybe a fake. Just a gut feeling. I have read that if it is made from glass then it will magnify when held over writing. If it is the genuine kyanite crystal it won't. When I hold it over the letters it does in fact magnify. I know this is the case with quartz (it won't magnify) however I am unsure if this is the same with kyanite. It has all the variations in colour and lines as expected. I would be so very grateful for your advice. Many thanks

Its hard to answer a question like yours without additional info and just a blurry picture. Though in general you can't really trust dealers from Etsy or Ebay in this field unless they are known to be reputable dealers.
