Can you tell the difference between colored glass and a gemstone just by looking at it?
Determination depends upon gemstone type. You can not tell from photos, esp with PhotoShop experts. With some training, many stones can be determined by a 10X loupe examination. However, some require other additional tests such as a refractive index.
