For amateur use – 20X Microscope/Magnifier with UV Lamp + White LED Light (2*LR44) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
- Good price point
- LED light helps under poor lighting, great for on the road use
- UV light comes in handy
Cons:
- lens clarity could be improved
- size too big, very hard to maneuver
- magnification definitely not 20X, only 10X
Other:
Bottomline:
If you're an amateur trying to spot inclusions in your gemstones, having an idea of what clarity means, then go with it. If you are a professional gemologist, appraiser or grader, go with a professional loupe. It's not design for professional grading purposes.
