The recommended type of microscope for viewing and inspecting amber is the stereo microscope, as it allows microscopy and magnification of large subjects/specimens and is also excellent when used to analyze side-by-side specimens. Stereo microscopes with zoom capability and the digital varieties are fittingly designed for routine amber inspection as they offer high numerical aperture-- producing a resolution of 600 line pairs per millimeter allowing long working distances and with this resolution you can work more efficiently, more precisely and gain much more information from your amber samples.

The zoom stereo microscopes or amber microscopes provide high zoom ratios and feature the ability to perform continuous magnification changes by means of stereo-graduated zoom-lens systems placed between the objective and the eyepieces. Stereomicroscope/amber microscope designs are fitted with high numerical aperture objectives that produce excellent high contrast images. This is chiefly essential when viewing shiny three-dimensional surfaces like amber to reduce the amount of flare and geometrical distortion. The observation tubes of amber inspection microscopes will accommodate high-eyepoint eyepieces with diopter adjustment buttons that allow the image of the amber crystal and the focus line-grid to be merged into focus simultaneously. In addition, many amber microscope models sport high zoom ratios (of up to 12x-15x) that affords a wide magnification gamut (ranging from 2x to 600x) and reduces the necessity to change objectives during amber inspection.

Ergonomic features incorporated into the amber microscope design helps in reducing fatigue during long hours of operation, and new accessories enable modern stereomicroscopes to illuminate the specimens encased within the amber at different angles for better amber crystal inspection results.
