What a great idea to have a diamond forum, some may differ though. An ''uneducated'' consumer, I have an P.H.D. Fluid Dynamics-yeah I lack some educaton on that note. I have recently ordered both a 10X, and a 30X, loupe to "terrorize" the mall dealers, it has been long enough the consumer has suffered. The Gaurdian of the Loupe, shall be my shield.
