Authenticity of relics

Greetings! How does one go about authenticating a relic? I have some relics and am hoping to figure out if they are legitimate. Both reliquaries have seals. I do not have paperwork or any documentation.

Thank you!

Thomas J. Serafin is an American lay Roman Catholic author and Christian relics advocate, collector and expert. Contact him. He should be able to help. I’ve contacted him in the past about relics.

Thank you!

Look at the fourth link from previous post.
