2.00 LBS
  • Product Description

    A spectroscope is used to reveal a colored spectrum of a gem by passing artificial light through it.  This spectrum is a unique pattern of rainbow-like colors and dark lines or bands for each species of gemstone, so can be used as an identifying criteria.

    This large OPL Diffraction Spectroscope comes with a larger eyepiece to allow easier observation of spectrums.  The spectroscope is supplied with a Rotating Stand so as to observe spectra easily in loose gemstones, and to provide hands free operation.

    This item is best used with a fibre optic light.

    1. Easy to use

      This spectroscope is easier to see the color spectra, than my handheld spectroscope. The view is so much larger. on Dec 1st 2020
