The Polarized Light Microscope is a principal piece of equipment used to observe the optical properties of minerals and study of crystals with birefringence properties. Our microscopes have indispensable applications for Petrography, Crystallography and Geology in University Laboratories and in other environments where a reliable practical polarizing microscope is required for teaching purposes.
