Review This Product
Small,, no instructionsAs the other reviewer said, this dichroscope is very small. It's about the size of a lipstick tube and comes with a leather case.There were also no instructions with mine, although the shipping paperwork and the web site both said that instructions were included. I think I figured out how to use it but instructions sure would confirm my guessing. Place the dichroscope over the gem stone under good light. You will see two small "windows." If the same color is in each window, it's single refracting. If there are different colors in the windows, it is double refracting. For example, a purple gem may have one red and one blue window. (The color differentiation may be very subtle.) I won this at auction so I'm betting that it was returned because there were no instructions. Sigh... January 22, 2014

Great ToolThis is a must have tool if your learning about colored gemstones. I use this tool quite a bit when separating different gemstones. Easy to use and easy to see through the scope at the gem just use a bright light on the gemstone that your looking at. May 27, 2013
