  • 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.

  • BelOMO 8x Doublet Loupe Magnifier

    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.
