Great little tumbler for kids to learn about mechanical "weathering" (polishing) of rocks. Just like in a stream the rocks are rolled over and over in a grinding powder. In a stream or river the grit would be sand and fine dirts and clays. In this kit the grit and polish are provided. And it only takes about 6 weeks to polish the rocks unlike months and years in a stream!Refill kits available.

We sell a lot of loupes to customers who have lost their loupe in the field. Using a lanyard keeps the loupe handy and with you rather than sitting near that last rock you examined. Now.... where was that?
Here is a heavy duty 3/4" nylon loupe lanyard with a quick release buckle and a split ring. Disconnect the buckle when you don't need the neck lanyard. But don't set the loupe down and walk way!
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. Remove the split ring, remove one screw on your BelOMO loupe, swivel the frame out of the way and slide the end over the support shaft. Do not use the split ring to attach the lanyard to the loupe. (We suggest that you purchase the loupe with the lanyard already installed.)
