If a stone is dichroic (transmits two colours at once) you will see the two distinct colours when viewed through a dichroscope.
You can see the two colours by viewing the stone from different directions, but this often impossible if the stone is set in jewellery, it's easier to use a dichroscope.
Is it easy to use?
