Combination Loupes & Magnifiers For Coin Collecting
The lens--which was named for its look-alike, the lentil--is an optical tool used to channel and refract light, curving its beams and forcing them into a focal point. Indeed, the magnifiers available at Provident Metals contain this ingenious discovery, one with roots traced to ancient Athenian playwright Aristophanes, who developed the first known magnifying device for writing his famous comedies. The Nimrud Lens, first used 3000 years ago, is an Assyrian rock crystal used to harness sunlight and ignite invaluable fires. Furthermore, Viking excavations in a harbour town in Sweden revealed rock-crystal Visby lenses, also used for fires a millennia ago. Sixteen centuries later, eyeglasses were devised in thirteenth-century Italy, an invention used by millions to this day.
The multi-use Combination Magnifiers available at Provident Metals come in a variety of sizes, shapes, styles and powers. Indeed, finding the ideal Combination Magnifier for all your collecting needs has never been more simple.
