A 10X, 18mm Loupe with darkfield. A small instrument that provides 10x magnification as in a standard loupe, with an important added feature: it is combined with a specially constructed area that enables you to view a gem against a black background with strong lateral lighting. This is called darkfield illumination, the reason why this instrument is called a darkfield loupe. It allows grading of loose diamonds and colored stones as well as assists in detecting fracture filled stones. Perfect for the traveling salesman and jeweler. Battery operated and with LED Flashlight.
This type of lighting environment makes it easier to see certain types of inclusions and to determine more precisely what they are. Especially valuable for colored gemstone buyers because seeing inclusions clearly plays an important role in separating one colored stone from another.
The darkfield loupe is an important and essential tool in examining colored gemstones, for anyone buying diamonds or diamond jewelry and in viewing many fracture-filled diamonds that are currently circulated worldwide. A fracture-filled diamond also known as clarity enhanced diamond, is a diamond which contains a crack or cracks that have been filled with a glasslike substance to improve the overall appearance of the stone.
