Ttantalum are more oval and likely to be shiny. Ceramic are almost a perfect circle and have more of a matte finish. As far as circuit schematics go I'm not sure how they are represented. I usually just check to see if polarity is called for and if not find one with the proper farads/voltage.

That's what I thought too. I thought the ceramic ones looked like this:

And the tantalum ones like this:

BUT...then I saw THIS (also a CERAMIC cap):

Which looks more like a tantalum than a ceramic to me. So...back to square one for me :)
