"The D2 is the best dichroscope in the world!" Bill Larson, Pala International
Unlike old-fashioned calcite dichroscopes, which only provide fuzzy colors, Professional Gem Tools dichroscopes contain high quality optics that allow the user to actually examine the stone.
Professional Gem Tool's patent pending design eliminates secondary internal reflections. This provides a clear and sharp image when viewing the stone.
Both the D1 and D2 dichroscopes feature 6.35X optical magnification, allowing the user to view into a stone to see flaws as well as to determine pleochroism. With this feature, gemcutters can easily orient the stone for best color rendition. Both dichroscopes come with a leather storage pouch.
Model D2 Dichroscope: $159.95
Experienced users can even identify the growth lines in verneuil corundum with the D2! Overall dimensions are 39.6mm long x 14.8mm diameter. An adjustable neckstrap with holder is available for the D2 dichroscope (pictured at right) for $12.95.
Model D1 Dichroscope: $79.00
GemologyPro/Harald Schneider L1 10X Loupe
OUT OF STOCK
This is the finest loupe available. It is prized by diamond graders and discriminating professionals. Those who use a loupe all day long will rarely get eyestrain with the L1 loupe. The wide 20mm diameter provides a bright image. The German designed aplanatic/achromatic lens is astoundingly sharp. The depth of field and edge to edge sharpness is unsurpassed.
A neck strap is easily attached to the loupe for ease of use. Shown to the left.
