    All:

    I finally got my AmScope 20-40X set up to take pics. While I still have to figure out the image optimization software, the image shows the potential value of the tool to someone like myself with less than average eye sight. I like the way the back lighting reveals the actual crack versus a suface blemish.


    Thanks!

    great pictures tmac, how did you take those thru the amscope???? Bob, where do you draw the line with natural jewels, am I right in saying that a natural jewel can have flaws, I am under the impression that as long as they are not damaged in the pivot area then they may be alright even with cracks/ flaws throughout the jewel, am I wrong about this??? is there anything else to be looking at???? thanks guys, William

    William,
    If you are an NAWCC member your can pull up a video made by the Illinois watch company that covers the complete manufacturing process of watch jewels.

    I bought this little camera that fits into one of the eye pieces – it comes with software too.

    Reagrding this jewel… its the one that was replaced and where the “botchmaker” gouged up the case in order to hold in the jewel. Additionally, it appears to to be at a different Z dimension than the original. I don’t know if it’s a natural or a man-made jewel.

    Thanks!
