The only way I know of is to flick the edge (gently) with thumb and pointer finger. It should ring with a clear sound if it is real crystal.

You can also wet the end of a finger and run it around the top edge of the glass. It will "vibrate" with a loud ring.

You can wet your finger, and rub it around & around the top of the glass, it will make a ringing sound... the higher the pitch, the better the crystal.

Thank you all for your answers. I love the pic of the dogs! I have a fawn pug and want to get a black one someday. The picture is adorable!

Hello. Basically my boyfriend got me a massive crystal, which is used as an ornament. But how do I know whether it is real?
