Bausch & Lomb 20x Coddington Magnifier

Correction in the Coddington magnifier is achieved through the use of a single thick lens with a central groove diaphragm. This provides for sharp, crisp images.

A swing-away, nickel-plated case protects the lens and serves as a handle.
  • focal distance of .5"/1.3 cm
  • 80 diopters
  • 12.5 mm lens diameter.
The Bausch & Lomb 20x Coddington Magnifier has extremely strong magnification for a hand held loupe but has limitations too. Make sure you need this much magnification.

The information below is true of all high magnification lenses including cameras, telescopes, and magnifiers. It is NOT a unique characteristic of the Bausch & Lomb 20x Coddington Magnifier.

The strong magnification comes at the cost of a very small lens. The lens diameter is what collects the light. With a small lens diameter it doesn't collect much light. A larger lens would really have to be larger and much more expensive. A 10x power loupe gives very nice magnification with a lot brighter image.

The lens has a very short focal distance, the point at which the image appears in focus. The distance at which the object appears in focus is one half inch (0.5''). Your hand will be one half inch away from the object and your hand will be blocking much of the light available to this small lens.

The lens offers very little Depth of Field. Depth of Field is the vertical relief that appears in focus. The focus slop if you will. The more magnification, the less Depth of Field. If the object you're viewing is rough, like a rock or a mineral, you'll have to keep moving the object towards and away from the loupe. A 20x loupe is good for looking under high magnification, at the surface of rocks and minerals, the faces of gemstones, coins, stamps, cloth thread counts and other objects where you must have high magnification.

This much magnification would not be useful for reading.

A 20x loupe should NOT be the only loupe that you have.

  • Photon I Ultraviolet (Convert)

    This special-purpose Photon light produces a powerful beam of ultraviolet light, which will activate fluorescent minerals (long wave), fluorescent ink, strips, & fibers that are used as anti-counterfeiting measures in bank notes, credit cards, casino chips, passports, checks, securities, cryptographic papers, etc. These key-chain sized UV lights are also great for checking fluorescent hand stamps at clubs, or curing UV-sensitive glue. The UV Photon features an extended housing to protect your eyes from direct exposure to the UV light.

    The beam has a fairly narrow focus and unlike a traditional blacklight, most of the light produced by the UV Photon is just outside the visible spectrum (370 nm). In full darkness it will cause objects to fluoresce at distances of 20 feet or more. In bright daylight the effectiveness is greatly reduced, but is still usable at about 6-12 inches.


    CAUTION: Intense UV light can cause eye damage if viewed directly. Keep away from children.

  • Deluxe Moh's Mineral Hardness Pick Set

    The Deluxe Moh's Hardness Pick Set now comes in two case types. The wooden case is small enough to carry and the top screws into the base to make a perfect desk stand. The plastic case is longer but the thinner size makes it easier to carry in your field tool set.

    Hardness is an important and quantifiable physical characteristic of a mineral and in your effort to identify an unknown mineral, the hardness, if known, combined with other properties, can narrow your search to just a handful of possibilities. Simply scratch a smooth surface of your unknown mineral with the picks of various indicated hardness. As an example, if a No. 5 pick scratches the mineral, but a No. 4 pick does not, then your mineral hardness is 4.5. Then compare this against a table of minerals listing hardness values to aid in identifying the unknown mineral.
    The Deluxe Mohs' Hardness Pick Set from Mineralab is unique in that, unlike other mineral hardness test tool that use minerals or crystal points, Mineralab picks are made of metals and alloys of hardness values equal to 2 through 9 on Mohs hardness scale. Because the picks are made of metal, they are easily ground to sharp points which will not break off and which can be easily sharpened.

    What is included in the Mineralab's Deluxe Mohs' Hardness Pick Set?

    • Four double-ended picks with eight points comprising 2 and 3, 4 and 5,
      6 and 7, 8 and 9 on Mohs’ hardness scale.

    • High quality brass pinch vises.

    • A glass plate (hardness of about 5.5) which, when scratched,
      quickly distinguishes hard from soft minerals.

    • A second hardness plate with a hardness value of 3.5.

    • A streak plate for testing a mineral’s streak color.

    • A magnet to test magnetic rocks such as magnetite and pyrrhotite.

    • A 100 grit polishing stone to keep the points sharp.

    • An attractive, mahogany-finished and compact wooden case.

    • Complete usage instructions.


    Other Features:

    • All points are stamped with the indicated hardness value, and each double-ended
      pick body is color coded for quickly finding the desired pick.

    • Hardness points can be easily and inexpensively replaced without having to
      replace the pick bodies.

    • Compact. The wooden storage case is only 7" tall by 2.5" wide.

    • Also use to test hardness of various materials encountered in the industrial,
      excavation, and archeological fields.

    • 1 Year Warranty
    If you are ordering only a Deluxe Moh's Hardness Pick Set you can save money on shipping by choosing USPS Priority Mail. We will use a USPS Priority Mail Small Flat Rate Box and I'll adjust your total to pass the savings back to you.
