How do you test to determine if tarzanite is real?

I have some that is supposedly real but I am having doubts.

One of the best way to tell if it is real or not, is to take it to a jeweler. They have a machine that can show the weight.

The correct name is Tanzanite. The only way to be sure it is indeed natural Tanzanite is to take it to a certified gemologist to be identified.

The best way to test your tanzanite is to purchase a tanzanite filter kit. This kit will contain the tools (tanzanite filter, dichroscope, etc...) and instructions for testing your tanzanite for authenticity.

Most likely you'd have to take it to a jeweler or someone who specializes in gemstones. Keep in mind that untreated or heated gemstones are often a very different color from ones that are treated. Certain stones are often treated to bring out a stronger color. Any good jeweler should be able to tell you what you have.

It is a one kind of alloy mix with the gold, in general company will added with gold on 8-9% for 22K. Accordingly less than 22K they will add the tanzanite with standard proposition. However now a day every gold shop is having carat gold machine through that they will find the quality of gold in percentage wise.
