My mother passed along a few pieces of jewelry to me recently, and I wondering if there is any way I could determine whether or not the 'spinel ring' I have is natural or synthetic. She has no idea. Are there any properties that I could easily look for and would determine what it is? If I take this ring, which I would *guess* is synthetic, in to be evaluated by a professional here in Perth, more than likely the cost would be higher than the actual value of the stone!
