Polishing Agates

After tumbling for a week with medium grit (stage 2) These will now go through one week of pre polish then 10 days of polishing grit (stages 3 & 4)

#first stage (grit)  Tumbling Lake Superior Agates (5days)

Ya got to wet them to look shiny after this stage

Rough Superior Agates before stage #1 grinding grit tumbling

Oh my 3:30 AM now ‘W̲a̲t̲e̲r̲ ̲W̲o̲r̲l̲d̲’ is on ❗️

Perspiration can Polish Stones 💎

But a rock tumbler with different grits is a lot faster and more efficient ❗️

Especially if ya have a rock saw with grinder / buffer  lab like I had in the ’60’s 😉
