The Spectroscope was great to use for identifying stones. It was easy to learn how to use it. I highly recommend it if stone identification is something you plan to do a lot, especially for locating a garnet among other similarly colored stones. The Garnet having so much Carbon, blocks out huge areas of the spectrum. A case and point was that I used my new Spectroscope to ID a wrongly labeled Pink Garnet that had been sold as a "Tourmaline". If I hadn't had the Spectroscope I would not have caught the error and therefore would have been wrongly charged for the cost of the stone.
