Gem Polariscope

The gem polariscope identification may be one of the most underestimated tools in gemology. Most gemologists use it to quickly determine if the stone at hand is isotropic or anisotropic or, at best, to determine the optic character of gemstones. It is used to determine if a material is singly or doubly refractive and to ascertain its optic sign. The reflection polariscope gemology will also show strain and twinning, which will occasionally help to distinguish between natural and synthetic materials. With some small additions, one can determine both optic character and the optic sign of a gemstone. It is also the preferred tool -- next to the microscope -- for separating synthetic amethyst from its natural counterparts (although with recent synthetics that may prove difficult). In addition, the portable pocket sapphire polariscope may be very useful for distinguishing solid inclusions from negative inclusions as well as for spotting polysynthetic twinning. 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 diamond polariscope for you, please don't hesitate to contact us.
