Review This Product
This product was a dissapointmentI just received the refractometer today. I cannot tell you how dissapointed I was. The pen light does not work, after putting two triple A's in it, and it makes a clinking sound every time I pick it up or move it. It was also sent without directions, so I really don't know which number I am looking at I should use. I will have to go on line and find out how to use it. I find that very frustrating. Its not like I spent pennies on it. Please check your items more closely before you ship them. February 22, 2013

I rated 3 gems only as it was on saleI know the market price for these are expensive and I eagerly awaited this, some mystery stones among the multiple trays I have filled from a parcel awhile back. I went online and throughly read directions. Waited until next morning so I could go on the porch (well ventilated area), excited....Did the head bob....Checked the first stone....Flashlight crapped out! Now have to go buy a minimag to use this. Also the handle to the case has no pins so it keeps coming off and I'll have to repair it too. Even on sale I'd think the flashlight would have lasted a little while and the handle would stay on the case. The refractometer seems ok but I didn't use it for very long. February 21, 2013

Very DisappointedI purchased two Refractometers and in each case the flashlights did not work. Yes, I put batteries in them, but no light. Sent both back and am reluctant to try another. February 21, 2013

no too happy right nowReceived my refractometer yesterday and was so excited to try it out. I have purchased many mixed parcels and was curious about a few of the stones. I also received the RI fluid. I had AAA batteries in my drawer and loaded up my flashlight. Read the instruction manual took out my Gem vue tray and was already to go. Unfortunately the refractometer I received was chipped up---paint was missing in several spots and it was dirty! I turned on my flash light but it didnt work. I think I got someone elses return that was damaged. I paid for a new one and thats exactly what I expected to receive. I sent this one back for exchange and hope to be able to write a better reveiw, but it is impossible to give a good review to a product that came in poor condition and you didnt even get a chance to use.

Flashlight is better than the old batteries & bulbThis refractometer isn't my first (I've had 3), but I really like it because the flashlight is a convenience, and the RI readings are much easier to see (they're also accurate). I like the flashlight. As I said, I can see the RI readings much easier than with the older model with the dim bulb. I can always change out standard alkaline batteries in the flashlight. PLUS, I can go to Radio Shack if the flashlight bulb needs replacing. I know this because I did it with the flashlight bulb that came with the Polariscope (one of my other favorite tools). What's the worst that can happen with this new arrangement? Remember to keep the hemicylinder clean! The instructions remind us to do that. If you think that the RI list of gems is too short (doesn't cover enough gemstones), just do a web search for "Refractive Index Chart" and you'll see Lots of places where you can print out a more comprehensive list. I hope this helps anyone who's not sure about this new Instrument. I've found it to be very accurate. February 21, 2013

Haven't Even Been Able to Try it Yet!It would really be nice if the Gemvue Refractometer came with the fluid needed to use the device. Hours later after the tool was for sale, the fluid came up for sale for $65 USD. You also have to supply the 2 AAA batteries yourself. If you have a lot of knowledge in gemstones and still need this tool, then go ahead and buy it - it's supposedly the best you can get. But if you are still learning and still want to know what you have, I'd suggest getting one of the lesser priced and lesser complicated tools. February 21, 2013
