We're very selective on which labs we use to perform analysis of our stones. No one that sells gems or jewelry should be certifying or appraising their own material, it's considered an industry bad practice. If you find a vendor that does,  insist on an independent 3rd party certification prior to purchase.

There are so many fly by night labs that exist either only on paper, or in a corner of a desk that produce pretty looking certificates with no real value. Generally they don't have the equipment or expertise to produce a valid certification.  If you buy ANY certified stone, make sure the organization doing the certification is reputable. In my opinion among the best US/Worldwide are:

 USA
