{Applications / Quality}
Generally, loupes are used by jewellers and antiques traders for looking at very small marks; by horologists and engineers for inspecting very small parts; by stamp and coin dealers; as a basic field instrument for biologists and geologists.

Specifically, this is the best quality large 20X loupe. My personal opinion is that 20X is too powerful for most applications and you will never get good quality with such a large (21mm) lens. This said, the quality is quite useable, the lens is spectacularly large (for a loupe). !

{Alternatives}
For gemstones and jewellery, stamps and coins, plant and insect samples, it's better to get a really good quality 10X loupe than one that is "very powerful", the quality will be better, the image will be crisper, the focussing will be easier, click here.
The most powerful loupes are never the quality of a microscope, click here. Or try a top quality and hands-free surgeon's-type magnifier, click here.
