Stick it in your microwave oven and see if it heats up.  Be careful, 
start with 5 seconds first.  You may also want to start with a cup of 
water as an additional load.  But as you gain some experience, you 
can lose the water.  The material that heats up the least has the 
least loss.

Use caution.  I have been testing dielectric materials like this for 
years.  Had some real flame throwers too!
