Nikon is one of my favs for around 50-60 range. you can find them online just search. (looking at diamonds as example) . The Belomo is also good. Rem I would choose the loop best for what time trying to do look at rough minerals or look at lots of different things as its fun the Belomo is my go to. Nikon I just love for diamonds and just works good for my eyes and its really up to you as how you train your self. On another note to jump up in the the pricey range like my Harald Schneider its all together different take more effort to use correctly and be quick with what your looking at / for. sorry if making it hard to understand but just some 2cents of my exploring. Just have fun with it and don't break the bank. ;)
