Outside of checking a reference book, I do not know of any way to do this without being in a lab with a scientist measuring things.

This does not answer your question, but I found that it was very interesting. http://www.colorado.edu/physics/2000/isotopes/index.html

Gratitude as a discipline involves a conscious choice.....* Victims of circumstance owe it to fate. Victims of choice owe it to themselves.*One of the widest gaps in human experience is the gap between what we say we want to be and our willingness to discipline ourselves to get there.

If you are into some hardcore physics (mainly statistical mechanics and quantum physics) you can predict the natual abundance of an isotope by calculating the core stability and the probaility of such a core to happen. I think you can only estimate the probability and stability for most isotope but I'm not sure.
