A triplet hand lens with ultraviolet (UV) capabilities, this magnifier boasts triplet optics (3 pieces of glass) to enhance the viewing quality along with excellent x 10 magnification and a generous 21 mm field of view. The loupe has a body made of stainless steel and a plastic housing, on which there is a ringe LED UV light but also a ring of white LED lights too (for viewing in low light conditions).
