OriginEdit

A magnifying glass (called a hand lens in laboratory contexts) is a convex lens that is used to produce a magnified image of an object. The lens is usually mounted in a frame with a handle.

The earliest evidence of "a magnifying device, a convex lens forming a magnified image" was Aristophanes's "lens", from 424 BC, a glass globe filled with water. (Seneca wrote that it could be used to read letters "no matter how small or dim"). Roger Bacon described the properties of a magnifying glass in 13th-century England. Eyeglasses were developed in 13th-century Italy.

TodayEdit

Artie managed to grab the artifact after there were reports of break in's at high class residential areas where locks and safes were broken into, but the marks didn't seem to come from a welder's blow torch. He did a little research and found that some hired help was always taking up work around the neighborhood and had worked at all the homes that were broken into. When he found the man, Artie noticed that the thief had his hand burned from using the artifact, and when he managed to get the magnifying glass (after figuring out that it was the artifact) he had the man arrested.

Artie theorized that the magnifying glass was probably used by kids to burn objects or bugs with the way the ability worked, and it just took on the "power" that little children expect it to have when used in such a manner.
