SYNTEST StereoZOOM Microscope

  • Horizontal immersion microscope for examination of coloured stones in immersion liquids of corresponding refractive index.
  • Horizontal arrangement of immersion cell, illuminator, and optical system for comfortable microscopy without surface reflections and free rotation of the specimen.
  • Ergonomic design for comfortable and enjoyable work and best results
  • Binocular StereoZOOM optics by LEICA for most magnification tasks
  • Trinocular StereoZOOM optics by ZEISS for digital photo- or video-microscopy
  • Adapters for most cameras, digital type available
  • High-end precision quality Made in Germany

Article on horizontal microscopy

This article describes how to reduce the reflections from a gemstone by using horizontal microscopy.

"How to reduce the surface reflections from a gemstone."

Rotating/swinging lamp

The character of light varies from transmission to incandescence by rotating the illuminator around the specimen.

Illumination

Light source is a high intensity LED 6.000 Klevin lamp for powerful illumination. Iris diaphragm for adjusting light intensity and focusing.

Dimmable light

Turning knob for electronic dimming the illuminator light source.

Magnetic-Click® stone holder

Smart stoneholder for comfortable rotation and positioning of specimen. Mounted on magnetic ball socket on the vertical post.

Stage Mounting

Stage alternatively mountable on base for either left- or right-hand use.

Immersion cells

Two immersion cells of 40mm size included. Magnetically fixed on stage.

Immersion liquids

Immersion liquids of nD 1.57 and nD 1.66, each 100ml included. Liquid with nD 1.74 optional.

Polarisation

U-type polarizer, both filters rotatable, with magnetic fixing on the stage.

ZEISS or LEICA optics
