Technical Data for SYNTHETIC.
The Synthetic stones are commonly of the corundum (Sapphire)type
or the Spinel type. These are grown inside a
flame, from their relevant chemicals. The
resulting stone is termed a "BOULE". In recent
years more stones are simulated by laboratory grown
"NATURAL" crystals. In other words they are grown
from the same chemicals as nature uses, and are
therefore almost impossible to tell from the
Cubic zirconia comes in so many colours that many
stones are now also imitated by this synthetic.
You can usually tell because they are just too
brilliant for the type of stone being imitated.
