Hand Held Spectroscope


Has anyone played around with one of these?

Supposedly they can be used to observe rain bands, absorption or emission lines in lights etc and identify gems.

Similar devices were very popular in Victorian England when amateur science was at it's height.

And here are some spectra obtained with a similar instrument
