Synthetic gemstones are stones with the same chemical composition and properties as their natural counterparts, except that the synthetic ones were made in a laboratory. In other words, natural gemstones were created in nature many thousands of years ago, while synthetic ones are man-made using the same materials. A common misconception is the confusion between the terms “synthetic gemstone” and “gem imitation or simulant”.
