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.
This packet contains 5 maps (17 1/2 X 23) printed on both sides. The maps divide the state into four sections and show the location of 47 gems in addition to gold and silver. The maps featured were chosen due to their clarity in spite of being printed in 1882, 1936 and 1900. This package is a must for both the serious or the part time rock hound.

The BelOMO 7x Triplet Loupe magnifier has a viewing area of 22mm, much larger than the Bausch & Lomb Hastings 7x Triplet Magnifier. The 3 elements making up this achromatic triplet provide a bright and clear view. The 7x 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.
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 7x has almost that magnification but provides a larger field of view. Of course the larger glass lens captures more light making the image even brighter and easier to see.
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.
