cut lead glass filled ruby under a loop and white light will give off a blue flash I believe. Move the stone around at all angles and where if has filled a crack or whole it will flash blue. Natural Ruby wont give off any kind of blue flash. Takes a keen eye to spot but once you see it you will know for sure.
