Laura Sudweeks:
Ordered 100 magnifying glasses for a marketing project. First I started on Amazon, but they only allowed me to order 10 at a time. That was a waste of my time and a complete pain...

Plastic Frame/Glass Geology Hand Lenses

Plastic cased magnifiers are the most economical and come with relatively large lenses (30mm/1.25") and are good for insect, plant or spider identification. The basic model has a 5X lens. Two other models come with 2 or 3 5X lenses that when lined up form compound lens of 10X & 15X respectively. There is also a 10X 50mm (2") if you prefer a larger lens. All models have glass lenses.

Metal Frame/Glass Geology Hand Lenses

Lens are a bit like prisms, they refract white light into its constituent colors. For many objects, this doesn't matter but for highly colored objects like minerals or even insects this can distort what you are seeing. Doublet & triplet lens loupes are cemented together to correct for this. Doublets for two colors & triplets for three.
