Hello,

I understand that sugilite is a cyclosilicate mineral.
What category of polish would sugilite fall under?

What category of polish would Labradorite fall under?

thx much in advance....

I've used cerium oxide, tin oxide, Poly-Al-F (Polishing Grade Aluminum Oxide) and Linde A.
All work but I think I prefer any of the last 3 over cerium oxide.
