How can I tell if a coral branch is real?

1 Answer
The best way to test if a coral branch is authentic is to use the “lemon juice test.” Put a little lemon juice on the end of a cotton swab and then touch it to an inconspicuous part of the coral. If you see tiny bubbles forming, that’s due to a natural chemical reaction and means that your coral is genuine. Shop a collection of expertly-vetted coral from some of the world’s top sellers on 1stDibs.
