Man made gemstone refers to materials that duplicate their natural counterparts and share the physical and optical properties of the natural varieties. In many cases, distinguishing natural and synthetic stones is quite challenging. Synthetic stones can offer uniformity and intensity of colour at a much more affordable prices. We have sourced a selection of high quality synthetic stones for you to choose from. On our website we add the term “hydro” to these stones in order to disclose that they are lab-created rather than natural.
