How do you use this thing!The instructions which are included are hilarious. A couple of pretty big typos and I think since the product was made in China, probably the translation was done there as well. I'll have to do some on line searching to figure out exactly how it helps id various gems because it certainly didn't include enough info for a novice to use. March 10, 2013

just okawkward to use & no info in packaging about battery size ( AA) I will keep it though. June 26, 2012

Dark field loupeJust received today. Easy to use. Helps you to really see the quality of the stone that you have. The flashlight is poorly made though. I wouldn't say it helped me identify any stones. Just helped me see them more clearly. June 26, 2012

My wife thought she had all the gem tools she needThen she spotted this one, upon checking her inventory of gem tools she found that she did not have this one. So now she does, that is until she spots another one. LOL. Thank you JTV for providing all the tools she needs to help her with her love of learning and gemstones. December 29, 2011

Play and learn.I was excited only after I got it home and started to play. This product gives you several advantages in having loose stones. No matter where you buy stones, this product will help you see the truth about a stone faster than a regular 10x loupe, any day. Love having this and being able to map my own stones and find the truth about colors within any stone. Yahoo, great toy and tool to own. Learned all about it from the host that day, she was spot on.

I Waited Until I Gave This a Real Test-DriveOkay, this tool works. I'll give it that much. Getting it to work had to be done without the use of the mostly-useless instructions -- no mention of which batteries, or how many, to use. Part of the instructions regarding lateral lighting: "....makes it easier to identify CETAIN types of INCLUSION and WHEATER or not a stone has been treated in SOMEWAY." (I typed the problems in Caps.) Furthermore: The instructions give you a very basic idea of how to use the dark-field loupe, a mere hint of why you might need it, BUT it relies on the user possessing much more information on colored stones. I'd agree with the reviewer who suggested reading "Gem Identification Made Easy," by Antoinette Matlins. So, I'm luke warm on this instrument. If my information helped you, please click "yes" -- I write so many reviews, and I always have the JTV customer in mind. Thanks so much, Cindy in FL February 09, 2014
