Would there be any other source for the round diffuser glass in the dark field of the Gemolite VII? I accidentally cracked mine during a bulb change. I've emailed the GIA store for the part but they're yet to respond.Thank you!

Thanks! I've actually emailed them as when I filter their optical diffusers for 34-35mm (more or less the size), nothing comes up.

Here's one that's 35mm from eBay: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Ground-Glass-D ... 1376686355 I ordered one of these a while back for a different project and it is good quality.

Thanks for this link! I'll probably order one as a temporary measure, while waiting for the other stores' reply :D
