One BRAND NEW RGM-700 Portable Gemological Refractometer in a Black Vinyl Zipper Case in a sturdy hardcase. This handy little piece of equipment tests a gemstone's ability to slow down or bend light. The amount of slowing down it does to a beam of light is called the refractive index. THIS UNIT WILL HELP YOU DETERMINE WHICH GEMS ARE REAL AND WHICH ONES ARE FAKES!
THIS UNIT HAS IT'S OWN INTERNAL LIGHT SOURCE! NO FLASHLIGHT NEEDED!
This unit is helpful in Testing for Cabochons, as well as, testing for Double Refraction!
How does it work?: The refractometer works by the use of a glass hemicylinder inside that has a flat surface extending into the body of the refractometer. When light is introduced into the back of the unit, it travel through the glass hemicylinder and up to the gemstone, where the stone is in optical contact with the glass by use of a refractive index liquid. This liquid keeps air from between the stone and the glass hemicylinder and allows light to travel at the same speed through the glass, gets refracted by the gemstone, and then back through the glass hemicylinder to the viewing lens. The amount of slowing down or bending of the light that the gemstone does to the light beam, causes a light and dark area joined by a thin green line. This green line is the refractive index reading of the gemstone.
