Review This Product
QUALITYThe polariscope is a well made professional tool. The accompanying video is 17 minutes long. Well done by Jerry Sisk in easy to understand language along with gem termanology. He explains what the equipments is for in the case and its use. I followed along with the video using one of my mystery gems from a faceted parcel. There is a small key used to open the battery compartment on the bottom of the polariscope that needs to be about half inch longer to make it easier to use. May 04, 2013

Wonderful addition to my tools!!A polariscope is the only gem identification tool I had not gotten yet from JTV. Now I have one that is not only great quality, but so easy to use. The fact that I don't have to worry with pen lights and batteries any more for my refractometer is a fantastic plus!!! May 03, 2013
