The Ruper 5024 is an excellent double hand lens, it provides you with both x 15 and x 8 magnification with 13 mm and 25 mm diameter fields of viewing. The body and lens housing are made from stainless steel with a matt finish which protects the glass for use in many environments as well as giving it a sleek finish, with the magnifiers located at either end which fold out. This loupe utilises quality doublet optics (not triplets as many may assume or as many sellers may suggest). The doublet optics work to clear abrasions when you view an object and are very versatile. Manufactured in Japan, this high quality loupe is another reminder of why Ruper are an industry best, accessories supplied are a faux leather pouch. The option to switch between two different strengths of magnification make this lens suitable for use in a wide range of professions and interests such as geology, sediment study, observation of insects, faceting, polishing and cutting of jewellery and gemstones, minute hobby and crafts and much more.
