About Lab Created Gemstones:
"Lab-created" gems are grown in a laboratory using the identical chemical ingredients as natural stones. They are more affordable since it is easier to get a large, lab-created gem with good color. Also, they frequently have greater clarity (fewer inclusions) than natural gemstones. Due to technical advances, only a trained professional can tell the difference between many high quality lab-created stones and natural ones. Although emeralds, rubies and sapphires are the most common, almost any gem can be created in a laboratory.
The Federal Trade Commission is very clear on the use of the term Lab or Laboratory Created. The stone must be identical to the natural in every way. Here's the quote from the FTC guidelines for gemstone sales for your reference
"It is unfair or deceptive to use the word "laboratory-grown," "laboratory-created," "(manufacturer name)-created," or "synthetic" with the name of any natural stone to describe any industry product unless such industry product has essentially the same optical, physical, and chemical properties as the stone named."
