Cleaning things up around here and I came across an old Lortone tumbler that died on me some 40 years ago. I clean up my rough in my tumblers so I can see what it looks like without all the dirt and crud. The barrel of this one had a bunch of something in it but it was not clear what it was so I added a bit of water and let it roll a couple of days... treasure from a hunt as a teenager!
I am very happy!

How nice it must be!  My little stash of Holley Blue rough was stolen some years back and I can't replace it.

Memory is weak at best these days and I had forgotten. :dontknow: Looks like about 2 lbs of AAA and 3 or so of lower grade stuff.
I think the last time I was in the agate beds up there was in 1979.
Great fun.
