  • Estwing Geo/Paleo Pick GP100

    Estwing Geo/Paleo Pick GP100

    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.

  • BelOMO 10x Triplet Loupe Magnifier with Plain Lanyard

    BelOMO 10x Triplet Loupe Magnifier with Plain Lanyard

    The world's best selling loupe: the BelOMO 10x Triplet Loupe with the Plain Lanyard attached.

    The BelOMO 10x21mm(.85") triplet loupe magnifier has a viewing area of 0.65 inch (17mm), much larger than the Bausch & Lomb Hastings Triplet Magnifier. The 3 elements making up this achromatic triplet provide a bright and clear view. The 10x power magnification provides the best magnification to depth of field ratio and is the most popular power for a hand held magnifier. The housing and cover are machined metal and coated with a matte black finish and assembled using flathead screws. Belorussian 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. This is the lens we use all the time.

    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. Over 10,000 other geologists, rockhounds, stamp collectors, botanist, surgeons, hobbyist and people from all walks of life have.
    Unsure? We encourage you to just Google BelOMO and peruse the rich praise for this loupe.

    Each BelOMO loupe we ship is custom treated to prevent the screws from coming loose with usage.
