Calcite Dichroscope

Calcite dichroscope is a small pocket-sized instrument used for transparent coloured gemstones to differentiate genuine stones of the same colour from synthetics. It is one of the most useful instruments for anyone buying coloured gemstones. It is a quick and easy way to separate stones such as sapphire-blue colour synthetic spinel from genuine sapphire, or such sapphire-blue colour synthetic spinel from genuine sapphire, or for separating green garnet from chrome tourmaline or emerald. The dichroscope allows you to actually see the pleochroism in a gemstone, in other words it allows you to see the multiple colors that many gemstones produce. There are two types of dichroscopes existing: calcite and polarizing. Calcite dichroscopes for sale are a better option than polarizing dichroscopes, as calcite is colorless while polaroid filters have a green tint, which could distort a stone’s true colors. Therefore, it is widely used in jewelry stores, gem workshops, museums & collections, auctions, laboratories and etc. If you have any questions or need help to decide which calcite dichroscope is better for you, please don't hesitate to contact us.

Calcite Dichroscope Review
  • New Polarizing Dichroscope Gemstone Inspect the Pleochroism and the Dichroism Gemological Testing
    Product is very small making it difficult to use properly. The lenses scratches very easy. Probably a descent product, I'm just getting to old and clumsy to use it as intended. Would still recommend.

    Purchased this to get an idea of what gems are in my antique/vintage collection. This is the first one I've owned so I don't have anything to compare it to, but I think it's great. I own the book Gem Identification Made Easy which has a dichroscope color chart and explains how to use it. I've also found plenty of online resources.
