How to distinguish a fake
Rubies are stones of the first order, therefore, scammers have achieved such good results in their counterfeiting that it is rather difficult to distinguish a real stone from a false one.
First, a natural ruby is never perfect in shape. Natural stone almost always has internal defects. Ruby is one of the most durable gemstones. Therefore, if you take a stone of lesser strength, for example, a garnet and run a ruby over it, then scratches will appear on the garnet.
Secondly, the natural gem becomes darker in very bright light. If UV light is directed at a fake, the color of the stone will turn orange.
