  • Estwing Geo/Paleo Pick GP100

    Estwing Geo/Paleo Pick GP100

    The famous Estwing Geo/Paleo Pick GP100 has made a grand reentry after being out of production for several years. The handle has been beefed up to make the unit even stronger. It is 25 inches long with a total weight of 3 pounds. Painted steel with a soft vinyl grip. The light weight but great strength of this makes it a great field tool for any geologist or rockhound.

    Not only is this a great digging tool but I use mine to help me navigate the steep slopes of mine tailings. Jab the tip in and pull yourself up then use the hoe end to cut a quick shelf to work from.

  • BelOMO 15x Triplet Loupe Magnifier

    BelOMO 15x Triplet Loupe Magnifier

    The BelOMO 15x Triplet Loupe magnifier has a viewing area of 0.38in (9mm). The 3 elements making up this achromatic triplet provide a bright and clear view. The 15x power magnification provides a nice level of magnification, good depth of field (the area that appears in focus on an object having an irregular surface like a rock or mineral). The lens glass isn't as large, wide, as the famous BelOMO 10x Triplet Loupe Magnifier but there's still lots of light for a very bright view when you need or want just more magnification than the BelOMO 10x Triplet Loupe Magnifier but not as much magnification as the BelOMO 20x Quadruplet Magnifier.

    The housing and cover are coated with a matte black finish and assembled using flathead screws. Screws allow you to adjust the swing tension to your liking. Belarusian Optical and Mechanical Association (BelOMA), makers of sights for guided weaponry, camera lenses, and other optical components manufacturers these loupes.

    We highly recommend this loupe! The BelOMO loupes are the loupes we always use though it's the 10x that we typically carry in the field. The 15x has a more magnification with a good field of view. But the magnification is just too much for the field so it's the BelOMO 10x Triplet Loupe Magnifier carry.

    Don't let this price fool you. The BelOMO loupe is a FANTASTIC buy. These are quality lenses that stand on their own against the higher priced competition. Take advantage of the recovering Belarus economy and a military supplier finding other revenue streams in a capitalistic market.

    Each BelOMO loupe we ship is custom treated to prevent the screws from coming loose with usage.
