Real or Fake Philips D1S 6000k Ultinon

Is there anyway of telling if these are fake or real. I have been reading on here that these are very hard to come by. Ebay is really hard with all the shit that can be sold on there.

From what I remember the way to determine them is the crystal color. I forgot which color were the real ones though lol.

Look at his feedback, one buyer claims fake bulbs. Buyer beware.
