Product Description
The Gemvue Polariscope Is The Fastest Way To Test The Optical Properties Of Gemstones. Quickly Determine Whether Gemstone And Minerals Are Singly Or Doubly Refractive. Resolve Optic Character In Doubly Refractive Gems And Detect Pleochroism. Operates On 2 Aa Batteries (Not Included). Includes Zippered Protective Carrying Case.

The GemVue handheld polariscope is one of a series of tools that assist in gemstone and mineral identification. This tool is used in conjunction with other gem tools to narrow the range of possibilities when identifying stones and minerals. The primary purpose of this tool is to determine the optic character. Gemstones and minerals exhibit different structural forms. Some may be singly refractive, doubly refractive, or an aggregate of numerous microscopically small crystals. Each of these structures responds differently when viewed through a polariscope. This is a valuable tool for any gem enthusiast. Requires 2 AA batteries (not included). Includes zippered protective carrying case.

Review This Product
5 stars
I gave this product 5 stars because I just received it yesterday in the mail, but being a novice I have no idea how to use it. It would have been nice to have had a list of gemstones that tells if they are singularly or doubly refractive, after a search of the internet I found one. Most gemstones are doubly refractive..now just to figure out how to use it...LOL..I guess if I am going to keep buying parcels a refractomertor is in the future...but I know from all my research that this tool is supposed to really help in identifing gemstones. So I gave it 5 stars because of my ignorance.....

Works well
I like that it's compact but still does the job. It helps in identification but I'm still learning.

Before I Goop up my Refractometer, I Use This
I meant "Goop", meaning with RI fluid. Some stones you just don't know by the eye, no matter how many carats you've bought of JTV's mixed facets. If I have a question on ANY stone's basic character -- single or double refracting -- I crank up this easy to use tool. Hey, if you know that a stone is singly refractive, then you've narrowed the field by a whole LOT. I've used every tool JTV offers. I do better with some than others (the dicroscope makes me feel like a spaz), but this tool will help me with gem identification. Plus, the flashlight portion takes normal batteries, and Radio Shack stocks the bulbs. If I still can't tell what stone I've got, then I bring out the refractometer. I hope this helps someone. Geesh, the price is terrific...so what could the harm be if you bought one? Sincerely to all of you, Cindy in FL.

GREAT to TAKE ALONG!!
This tool really is fun! If you don't take your Refractometer and RI liquid out with you, TAKE THIS TOOL! When looking at loose gems locally, this is a must. You can judge whether the stone is single- or double-refracting and can assess the colors in the stone. Get this!!!!!

Looks great!
I finally decided I needed some equipment if I was going to really collect gem stones. I have not used it yet, but I am happy with my purchase. I read the other reviews and bought the polariscope because of the price.

Great Value!
This came with perfect instructions and works like a charm. It was surprisingly easy to use - but make sure you follow the instructions! I highly recommend this, especially if you are just getting started. Pair this with a refractometer, along with a good gemstone identification book and you're on your way.

Good value
I haven't tried sorting loose stones yet, but I'm excited about learning how by using this polariscope. Good value for this tool to learn a new skill.

Great tool but needs instruction sheet!
This tool is great in assisting you in gem identification. However, when I received it, I felt I needed an instruction sheet. It was a very good price at the sale price. Full price, I think is too much for what I received. Please continue to present tools at an affordable price. Thanks JTV
