A polariscope uses polarized light for gem identification. It consists of two polarized filters, one on the top and one on the bottom of the instrument. Both the polarizer and the analyzer have their own vibrational plane. Gems can be tested to determine if they are:

  • isotropic
  • anisotropic
  • anomalously double refractive or an
  • anisotropic aggregate
