Take it to a jeweler. A lesser alternative would be to take it to a gem show. Good luck.

That's correct. Someone who can do physical tests or had good visual experience can distinguish them. There are also some physical test you can do such as hardness to tell them apart. Also - I assume you mean "Gaspeite", not "Gasbeite."
