BelOMO 8x Doublet Loupe Magnifier

The BelOMO 8x Doublet Loupe magnifier has a viewing area of 14mm. The 2 elements making up this achromatic triplet provide a bright and clear view. A doublet lens is cheaper to produce than are the triplets and quadruplets. The lenses are of high quality optical glass but they won't provide as sharp an image from edge to edge as will a triplet lens. The 8x power magnification provides a nice level of magnification, outstanding depth of field (the area that appears in focus on an object having an irregular surface like a rock or mineral) and the large lens size captures lots of light for a very bright view. 

This doublet is an extremely good compromise over the cost of more expensive triplet lenses. We won't even get into how much better the BelOMO lenses are compared to the cheap Chinese imports many vendors sell as quality magnifiers. They sell their's at a much higher price to get you to believe they're high quality. While we pay more for each loupe we sell than do those dealers the price we receive allows us to make a profit and pass the savings on to our customers. You're on the net. If you have any doubts about the BelOMO loupe quality just do an Internet search on BelOMO loupe and see what others say. The housing and cover are machined metal and coated with a matte black finish and assembled using flathead screws.

Belarusian Optical and Mechanical Association (BelOMA), makers of sights for guided weaponry, camera lenses, and other optical components manufacturers these loupes.

Highly recommended by the Amateur Geologist. The BelOMO loupes are the loupes we always use though it's the 10x triplet that we typically carry in the field.

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.

  • Floridas Geological Treasures

    Florida is a land of geological wonders, from its little-known earthquake history to the rich new fossil hunting grounds constantly being revealed by commercial development and quarrying activity. Much more than a fashionable resort or retirement destination. Florida ranks fifth in mineral production among all the United States. Florida's surprising mineral wealth ranges from commercial mines to coral islands; from valuable industrial metals like zirconium and titanium to such collectible treasures as chalcedony, ivory, petrified wood, and stunning crystals. You can gather Florida's mineral riches from the waters of the state's 34 major rivers, or find them waiting in the darkness of its 375 dry caves. Alongside a wondrous number of fossil remnants of such prehistoric creatures as jaguar, tapir, and mammoth, you will unearth arrowheads, stone knives, and other relics of the tools early man hunted them with. This book will tell you where to collect every type of mineral and fossil in Florida, and explain how they got there. Maps of the collecting areas, tips on carving, collecting, tools, and techniques for identifying and preserving your finds will help you prepare to uncover the remarkable variety, beauty, and wealth of Florida's geological treasures. Iris Tracy Comfort is the author of eight previous works of fiction and nonfiction, including two other books about rocks and minerals. She has worked as a reporter and scriptwriter, and has published numerous magazine articles and syndicated features. A frequent lecturer and seminar teacher on writing, she lives in Orlando, Florida.

  • Firefly Guide to Minerals, Rocks and Fossils

    A detailed and extensively illustrated handbook.

    The colors, shapes and properties of minerals vary from the bland to the magnificent. Guide to Minerals, Rocks and Fossils is a practical and authoritative handbook that is both comprehensive and easy to use.


    Each of the 600 specimens is shown in full color, sometimes in two or more forms. There are also drawings that show the structure of the crystalline specimens. It covers the basics like granite, as well as oddities like meteorites and tektites.


    Fossils include sponges, corals, arthropods, brachiopods, and fossil land plants.


    Each is described in detail, with notes on: - color and transparency - grain size - hardness - structure - occurrence - mineralogy - distinguishing features - habit - cleavage - texture - alteration - luster


    Mineral names, chemical formulae and structural data accord to international standards. This is a very complete, but attractive and useful volume in a respected series.


    Amateur Geologist note: This book originally was published by Cambridge under the title of Cambridge Guide to Minerals, Rocks and Fossils with this description: Whether hiking along a mountain trail, setting up camp in the field, or working in a garden, this is the definitive resource for anyone interested in identifying the rocks, minerals, or fossils they come across. Easily portable and with nearly 250 illustrations, with 145 in full-color, Cambridge Guide to Minerals, Rocks and Fossils is an indispensable handbook for amateur collectors and specialists alike. For each mineral, the authors explain and list the physical and optical properties, from crystal systems, hardness and fracture to color, transparency, and luster. They also discuss the occurrence of each mineral, as well as handy tips on their distinguishing features. For each type of rock, the Guide lists the color, color index, grain size, texture, structure, mineralogy, and field relations. In addition, for each fossil, the authors provide their corresponding type, age, and geographical distributions, along with detailed descriptions of their sizes and shapes. The clear, informative illustrations help elucidate technical concepts that often befuddle amateur collectors.

  • 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.

  • Lanyard, Plain Black, 3/4in Nylon, with Quick Release Buckle and Split Ring

    Lanyard, Plain Black, 3/4in Nylon, with Quick Release Buckle and Split Ring

    Heavy duty 3/4'' plain black nylon loupe lanyard with a quick release buckle and a split ring. This lanyard may be used for any purpose but we've had it custom manufactured specifically for use with the BelOMO loupe.

    Important: We offer this lanyard for no additional charge when you buy the combo package of the BelOMO loupe with attached lanyard. Attaching the lanyard requires a screw to be removed so let us do it. We've been doing it for years and you save money!

    Use the split ring on loupes with a mounting hook. To use the lanyard with a BelOMO loupe remove one screw on the support shaft of your BelOMO loupe, swivel the frame out of the way and slide the end over the support shaft then install the screw again. Don't use the split ring to attach the lanyard to the loupe. (We suggest that you purchase the loupe with the lanyard already installed.)

  • 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.
