Dear HVZ, It really depends on what you mean by fake or legit. They are not fake in the sense that no one really forges these GGL certificates of authenticity. So, in that sense they are perfectly legit. However, they are fake in the sense that they provide misleading, fake information. For example, the certificate you have here states it’s a natural, heated ruby. In reality, it’s a worthless composite ruby. I have seen numerous GGL certificates of authenticity where it’s said “natural emerald”, whereas it’s a fracture-filled, dyed quartz (fake emerald) in reality. Thus, in this sense these GGL certificates are as fake as a three-dollar bill. They are happy to print anything on these certificates as long as it helps to sell their stuff.5 Share ShareShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedInShare on WhatsAppFreddie 0 Questions 12 Answers 3 Best Answers 185 Points View Profile Freddie Explainer 2020-02-19T22:48:07+00:00Added an answer on February 19, 2020 at 10:48 pm I have seen at least a few hundred of these GGL ” certificates of authenticity”, and I don’t remember seeing anything except one of these: 1. Dyed quartz certified as natural emerald; 2. Composite ruby certified as natural ruby. Thus, if you see a “gemstone” that comes with one of these GGL certificates, run away! There is no easier way to tell if a stone is a fake than the presence of a GGL certificate.2 Share ShareShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedInShare on WhatsAppEmmy07 1 Question 1 Answer 0 Best Answers 14 Points View Profile Emmy07 2020-07-01T12:57:00+00:00Added an answer on July 1, 2020 at 12:57 pm Hi!I noticed that many of the fake gemstones mentioned in this post https://www.shopperlib.com/catawiki-proudly-selling-you-jewelry-with-fake-emeralds/ also come with the globalgemslab (GGL) gemstone certificates. I think that tells a lot about their certificates.
