    Hmmm, another deep thought into what is real and what is not. And boy today Tom Foolery is all around us.
    I guess in my mind If I am The Designer, Master of my God Given Creation whether lab grown to the Specs of Nature and Science or the Natural from the wonders of the Earth I guess there is a slight difference.
    Disclosure is what I understand is what makes the difference. I guess then we can say that the lab being flawless is ascetically more pleasing to the eye than a natural with a flaw. Here again I guess it is in the eye of the beholder. But to the appraiser, to the certified may I ask what they may think of the difference?
    A Gemologist from what I have read can tell the difference, is this true?
