Gemstones and minerals exhibit different structural forms. Some may be singly refractive, doubly refractive, or an aggregate of numerous microscopically small crystals. Each of these structures responds differently when viewed through a polariscope. This is a valuable tool for any gem enthusiast. Requires 2 AA batteries (not included).

Here is what some of our customers have to say about this item:
Great Value! - This came with perfect instructions and works like a charm. It was surprisingly easy to use - but make sure you follow the instructions!
I highly recommend this, especially if you are just getting started. Pair this with a refractometer, along with a good gemstone identification book and you're on your way.
Great price and very useful - I got this because my wife and I just started our first collection with two JTV mixed facet parcels. The plus about this one over a desktop version is being portable. If you plan to shop for loose stones at fairs this is a must. If you want to learn how to use a polariscope, YouTube has a couple of really nice tutorials. I highly recommend this item.
