This is the perfect "carry-with-you" magnifier-microscope. Just 5 1/4" x 1 3/4" x 3/4" with a built-in light source and optics to let you see objects 30 times their actual size. Uses two "AA" batteries (not incl.) and features a center focus wheel for precise one-hand operation. Ideal for inspecting gems, photos, stamps, coins, and learning about plants and insects.
