Microscope and tools

I am living on low budget
Can anyone help please?
I will buy an average quality but useful to gem testing and I need a microscope too. Do you have experience with average quality tools and brands, please

I have my first used microscope I used for gemology I will sell for same. I paid $75 USD + shipping. It’s a Wolfe and did a good job and still does for a student level.

I found a GemOro Elite with a grading light at a pawnshop. I threw him 200 in scrap 14K and used the scope to knock him off of a natural Aqua 4cts for 80 in a filigree mount :face_with_raised_eyebrow:
