I’ve been moving shit around, trying to get organized, but mostly making a huge mess, while I try to sort and organize everything.
I found this foam box buried under a bunch of canvas bags full of stuff I was saving. (I hadn’t looked in any of them in several years, but it was all “good stuff.” –Really it was.)
At any rate, I pulled it out and put together the device inside.
It’s a desktop gemological spectroscope, by the International School of Gemology that I bought but never used.
I found it on eBay, so I guess someone else started learning, got all excited about the toys, and never finished the course. Or, like me, bought a bunch of tools, and then found out that they didn’t need all this fancy equipment for day to day dealings.
Ah, well. Back to it. I’ve got a bunch more “good shit” to sort through, including more gemological tools that haven’t seen the light of day in years.
