It's not easy and takes some time to get use to, but here's what we recommend. Make sure you look out for unnatural colors (example: like dyed crystals) or patterns that are perfectly symmetrical. These patterns usually don't exists.

You can also try removing the color from the crystal, but be careful cause you don't want to damage a real crystal. 

If rare crystals are priced oddly, that is often a red flag. 

Be careful buying crystals online from China and other countries that are well known for scamming customers.
