Hand lenses are an ideal piece of equipment for earth science sectors, also known as jewellery loupes, they offer users the ability to view objects, samples and fauna on a magnified scale with the ease and freedom of your hand. A hand lens comprises of 2 main parts, the optics (the glass lens which provides the magnification you require) and the body, which houses the glass. The majority of our loupes are housed in a metal body, bar the plastic ones for children, and offer a range of magnification from x 10 to x 20. They are suitable for use in a range of sectors such as earth sciences, geology, geography, analysis of sediments, botany, gemology, jewellery making, entomology and more. With such a range to chose from, we are sure we can supply to what ever your skill level, child, student, teacher, professional and amateur.
