    Jaya,

    Since the saffron is very costly ..and one gram of it will cost around 450 bucks..there are high chances of duplicating it....
    The original saffron will have very good aroma and also the colour. To test it ..put 2 strands of saffron in hot water and leave it for a while ...The colour can be seen and smell the aroma.
