PostPosted: Nov 24, 2015 03:22    Post subject: Fake silver crystals Morocco  

Hi,
I just want to warn the community that there are some fresh "home-made" silver in Morocco.
I have been offered one lot by email yesterday and I asked one of my friend supplier in Morocco to check it for me as I couldn't travel right now.
I trust this man 100% checking for me.

He told me they are fake... Real original matrix on one side, real BUT black silver crystals on the other side.
They melt some silver, they cover the black crystals with it and then they glue them on the matrix.

The final result is quite nice...
Cheers,

Christophe

Very useful Christophe, thanks!

To differentiate these from the other Moroccan faked silvers (wire silvers), I add the link to that other topic: Wire "silvers" from Imiter (Morocco)
