Molded Hematite question


#1

I’m primarily a bead worker - has anyone considered that these
pieces may just be coated glass? It has a ‘nickely’ look when it’s
right next to the real thing, and since it’s glass it’s lighter
weight, but otherise you can’t really tell the dif. Has anyone tried
the scratch test?


#2

Glass has a very different “heft” - hematite is very heavy. Yes, I
often use the scratch test - but on a porcelain shard.
