The current PROMINAR product range from Kowa is characterised by the use of special optical lenses made of pure fluorite crystal. The pure fluorite crystal used by Kowa is artificially grown and moulded into a lens shape and polished in a very complex process. Lenses made of pure fluorite crystal are used in Kowa's current TSN-99, TSN-88, TSN-66 and TSN-550 PROMINAR spotting scope series and in PROMINAR High Lander large binoculars. You can find more about PROMINAR here.
