A 10X, 18mm Loupe with darkfield. A small instrument that provides 10x magnification as in a standard loupe, with an important added feature: it is combined with a specially constructed area that enables you to view a gem against a black
background with strong lateral lighting. This is called darkfield illumination, the reason why this instrument is called
a darkfield loupe. It allows grading of loose diamonds and colored stones as well as assists in detecting fracture filled
stones. Perfect for the traveling jeweler.This type of lighting environment makes it easier to see certain types of inclusions
and to determine more precisely colored gemstone.
