- The BelOMO loupe is a single power 10x magnification lens composed of three separate high quality lens bonded into one with anti-reflection optics. For myself, 10x seems to be the best general size magnification to carry. In my experience, I prefer to carry just one high quality 10x lens over a loupe with a selection of lesser quality lens.
- The feature point of this loupe is higher quality lens manufactured by Belarusian Optical and Mechanical Association; who also manufacture lens for guided weaponry, cameras, and scopes.

One of the unsung heroes for rockhounds is the hand rock chisel. I've found myself in countless situations where the specimens I was after were only obtainable by chiseling away at the material around it. This has been the case for unearthing thundereggs, fossils and many other rocks and minerals.
This heavy duty flat rock chisel has an integrated hand protector which is going to serve you well when the rock chips start flying. (Don't forget to wear safety goggles!)
