Hi! A russian lab diamond is a cubic zirconia (CZ) stone. They are the same.

Thanks, Irish. Aren't there any categories in color or clarity or cut? Are they all the same?

In CZ the clarity is all flawless because it is a created material. As for color, I assume you're asking for colors that match diamond color grades, the answer is yes, it comes in 'some' diamond colors.
If you click on the link in my signature it will take you to SimsTalk where there is lots of info about synthetic materials.
