STUDENT REFRACTOMETER

I often get questions about identification of gem materials, and there are many tricks of the trade. But, sometimes, a Refractometer is the tool of choice for identification - even though it requires a polished facet to measure from.

A Refractometer, is that they're relatively expensive bit of kit for a faceter, though - given that we don't use them that often. So, I'm always on the lookout for a source of a "student level" but serviceable unit.

Recently, I found a source that I think is ideal for the faceter or student.


Refraceometer Student Version


This student model has a built-in light source, so is very compact, and is only $130 at this vendor.

NOTE: I have no financial interest or connection to this company or this product. I don't get a commission if you buy them. This is just an alert about a product that I've had a look at and think is a good deal for the kind of use we need.

COMBINED ACADEMY HAS ONE OPEN SEAT

Due to an emergency cancellation, a seat has opened-up in the COMBINED (9-day) Basic + Advanced Faceting Academy event in May. If you are serious about getting a strong start in faceting - or taking your faceting to the next level - contact me directly ASAP to put your seat in this ONE seat. It's the LAST CHANCE you'll have this year!

ADVANCED ACADEMY has TWO SEATS LEFT

There are ONLY TWO seats left for the ADVANCED (only) Resident Faceting Academy to be held in May, 2014 in Klamath Falls, Oregon.

Students in the Advanced Academy are already beginning some study experiments, and have already begun their 12-week Fast Mastery bonus training. There's still (a little) time for you to take the brakes off your hobby or career working with precious gemstones. And, this is the best opportunity you're going to get. There are ONLY TWO SEATS LEFT in the Advanced resident training event. Act quickly to PUT YOURSELF IN ONE OF THEM! This is the LAST CHANCE to enroll this year!

I'm looking forward to seeing you here!
