Gem Laboratory

Looking to put a small Gem Lab in my house. What would be considered the “essential” tools for start up?

Thanks

A Stereo Zoom Binocular Microscope, a Dichroscope, a Spectroscope, a Specific Gravity Kit, a Refractometer, a Chelsea filter, a Short Wave Long Wave UV Chanber, a Polariscope and of course s pair of tweezers and a good 10X Loupe would give a good beginning and make for a good Gem Laboratory.

Very nice of you. Thanks.

You are Welcome.

You might want to add an accurate and precise scale to make that “Specific Gravity Kit” functional. Also, Carat Weight is one of the 4 C’s.
