This golden brass dragonfly loupe pendant contains a 26mm lens (5x magnification). The lens is protected by a domed decorative grill featuring a handsome dragonfly. The grill is held in place by a gentle magnetic clasp. Overall measurement of the framed lens is 30mm in diameter (roughly 26mm for the lens alone). The chain is approximately 24 inches in total length, offering a drop of approximately 12 inches.
The Dragonfly has been flitting about planet earth for about 300 million years fascinating humankind across the globe. Irish myth tells us that the “little people” ride Dragonflies as a horse to travel in the blink of an eye. The Celts connect the Dragonfly with the ability to see truth; with the sight of the ancient, powerful Dragons who were guardians of the Sacred Stones and magical wells.
The lens offers excellent clarity for close examination of jewelry or fine paint strokes…Things of that nature. The lens is less useful for anything you would do at a greater distance from the eye. From my personal use, I can tell you this: I found wearing this dragonfly loupe pendant to be exactly as handy as I hoped it would be.
