MM-007  Magnifying Glass with Brass Case   The optic of this lens folds into a brass case for protection against scratches while in your pocket, haversack or hunting bag. It is a lightweight, portable magnifier typical of the kind in common use for several hundred years. This magnifier is suitable as a burning glass when used to ignite charcloth.    $6.00

MM-008  Burning Glass   The use of a glass or crystal lens to ignite combustible materials has been in use since the time of the ancient Greeks and Egyptians. Vikings and ancient Celts in Ireland also used burning glasses to stat fires. With this being said, this is another type of technology that does not have a clear origin in mankind’s history – in other words, it is a very old tool in mankind’s toolbox. To this day, a burning glass is used to light the Olympic torch carried by the host country before the start of the Games. Our burning glass will light your torch or campfire on any sunny day.    $3.00
