Characterization and identification of gems by the use of color filters has always been an appealing approach because of its affordable simplicity and the ease of examining multiple specimens.
For those who want the entire body of Dr. Hanneman's life work on Gem Filters - a tremendous value!
Using these filters is simple. Just place the stone on the included viewing surface, illuminate it with incandescent light, and hold the filter close to the eye. Observe the apparent color of the stone and match that up with the identifying chart that comes with the filter.
Please note: Actual set contains about 50 "luggage tag" cards.

If you like using a Chelsea filter for gemstone identification you will love these...
A very useful set of filters for gemstone identification and can be used for both rough and faceted stones. The Aqua filter makes Aquamarine glow a strong green colour which easily distinguishes the difference between Topaz and other blue gemstones.
Apart from assisting you to identifying Rubys, the Ruby filter has many other uses for red gemstones including Garnets. Pyrope garnets will appear brown through the filter and Rhodolite / Almandine garnets will appear grey.
A gemstone filter set, definitely worth having in your tool kit! Jason Sidney on May 17th 2023
