While buying a sapphire one should be sure that it is original and not a fake or synthetic one. The difference between synthetic and fake gemstones is that fake ones are basically glass, whereas the synthetic ones are grown in a lab under the same chemical makeup and same conditions in which the real sapphires grow. Nowadays, a lot of fraud dealers of gemstones take advantage of the naivety of the buyers and sell away the fake ones. A layman will not be able to make out the difference between the fake ones and the original ones.
If you hold a sapphire with a pair of tongs and dip it in water then the colored as well as the uncolored parts of the stone will be clearly visible. The color of the blue sapphire will appear exactly as it is. This is an easy home-test that can help one make out whether the sapphire is an original or fake.
If you want to make out a Blue Sapphire from a man-made blue glass then remember that a glass is a good simulant for all gemstones. All types of man-made glass have "gas bubble" inclusions which are visible as round, oval or elongated. A layman might find it tough to identify these "gas bubbles" and make them out from crystal fingerprints initially. However, with practice they can easily differentiate between the gas bubbles and crystal fingerprints.
In order to test a white sapphire you should observe its interior color. A pure, naturally-occurring white sapphire can possibly be slightly cloudy, even off-white, or it may have a slightly yellow tinge. However, a synthetic one may be completely clear.
