  • 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.

    Estwing Supreme 14 oz Pointed Tip Rock Hammer E3-14P

This rock hammer has a 14 oz head and a narrower and shorter handle. This is a great rock pick for the young geologist, those that prefer a lighter rock hammer, or those times when you want a smaller rock hammer. Lighter to pack or wear on longer hikes.

  • BelOMO 20x Quadruplet Loupe Magnifier

    BelOMO 20x Quadruplet Loupe Magnifier

    The BelOMO 20x Quadruplet Loupe Magnifier has a viewing area of .28" (7mm), much larger than the Bausch & Lomb Hastings 20x Triplet Magnifier. The large .5" (17.5mm) 4 elements gather lots of light to provide this quadruplet loupe with a bright and clear view. 

    The following details are true of any lens such as a loupe magnifier, microscope, telescope, camera lens or other high magnification lens.

    A 20x magnifier should NOT be the only magnifier you own. It's just too much magnification for normal usage. For instance, if you're using it to look at newsprint you would see at most a 4 letters at a time.

    Must you have such strong magnification?

    You'll be incredibly close to the object you are examining. Almost touching. For a 10x the focus distance is around 3/4'' but for a 20x it's about 5/16''.

    The 20x power magnification provides a very strong level of magnification which works best on flat objects like coins or stamps or surfaces of objects. However, only a small area (field of view) will be visible. Think of examining a quarter and all you can see is the date but it's highly magnified.

    The stronger the magnification means the less depth of field the lens will have. Depth of field is the vertical relief that appears in focus on an object having an irregular surface like a rock or mineral. You'll have to ''dance'' the lens around more on rocks and minerals but the portion of the object you're viewing will be highly magnified. The limited depth of field also make a 20x the most magnification you'll want to use when hand holding a loupe. With a higher magnification the slightest movement in you hand will cause the image to continually move in and out of focus.

    The high magnification works well when you need to closely examine the surface of a rock or mineral, the surface of a gem for minute scratches, small areas of coins and stamps or any other object where you need to examine a small area under high magnification. It's great for reading laser inscriptions on diamonds.

    The 20x power is a favorite of sharpeners of knives and razors, examining phonograph needles and pen nibs because you can see such edge detail.

    The larger size of this lens compared to other 20x loupes means it will capture lots of light for a very bright view. This is also a loupe that you can hold comfortably in your hand unlike the smaller than a dime lens from Bausch & Lomb.

    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 that we typically carry in the field. If you MUST have 20x power then this is a great lens to have.

    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.
