Pear shape or not, color zoning or not, it won't tell you much whether it's natural or created. Your pictures are not sufficient to identify a stone, you'd better off sending it to a gem lab.

With more information I might be able to help you make a blunt assumption. What's the weight of it and how much did you pay for it? Where did you purchase it from?

Had a gold buying business and it weighs 1.69 can out of a gold ring.

shot in the dark with pics provided. I would be suspicious of it as a composite or curved strata cant tell from pics just a guess no more no less
My suspicion is flame fusion (synthetic) corundum due to what I believe are curved striations and some gas bubbles.
