Gemologist accept Lab Created Stones as Gemstones. Stones created in a lab are chemically, physically and optically identical to those mined underground but they have fewer flaws and cost less.
They have the same hardness of Natural gemstones. They will not change color in the sun or pools. The human eye cannot tell the difference of a Lab Created Stone or a Natural Stone from those mined in the ground. This is why many people are attracted to them as an alternative.
