Lovely work as always Michael, good to see you branching out from knives. Love the gem chrysocolla, what is the pink one of the 110? looks like very good quality thulite/ziosite.

That is Sonora Sunrise from Mexico..........

Holy crap, those are great! I don't often comment on peoples work here but wow. Whats the big green necklace made of? Looks very cloudy(in an awesome way) to be jade but I might just be used to lower levels of jade.

That necklace is Polar Mine Jade from British Columbia, the spendy stuff!

Thanks Jhon P......I can get the polishing pads up to 3000 .....just wondering....does anyone do final polish on spheres in a vibratory tumbler or would that not work?

14,000 will give you the best polish on most rocks
I go to 1,500 then 3,000 than 14,000 for polish

Hi again all:

Here are a couple of pics of spheres made from drill core on my home-made machine.  I had made polishing cups from cut up polishing pads...the finest was 1000 grit...should I make some 3000 grit and higher?

Hmm it is hard to see but the little fracture on the polished piece looks conchoidal which would not be the case if the material was feldspar. How does it break?  Do you have a streak plate  to see what color the powder is?
