The Eyepiece Pointer: A Useful Microscope Accessory

The eyepiece pointer is a very useful microscope accessory for the gemologist. It is always in focus and points to the center of the microscope's field of view regardless of the magnification or plane of focus within the stone. The eyepiece pointer simplifies the task of pointing out microscopic features on or in any gemstone, whether mounted or unmounted. It can be fashioned easily for use on virtually any microscope.
