I have a refractometer w/a scratched ( measuring glass ,or hemi filter ,  prism )
I've seen a few different names for this piece of polished glass that the gem sits on.
My ? Is is it worth getting it re- finished or polished out

On a slightly different subject would anybody know where to find geodes that have not been split
