Thanks Frank.

Knowing how to cut this Jade- or at least realize it's not written in stone ( no pun intended) how to- might be the game changer alone.

Fortunately the knife making trade has made SIC belts more available in finer grits.
Presently I have 400 through 5000 ( although I think the 5000 might be aluminum oxide).

I do have a flat lap with diamond laps up to 3000. But I have found the softness of these stones makes the process with diamond happen too fast for me, so I've been grinding on a diamond 360 and then moving over to the SIC on a belt sander.

It's a steep learning curve, and I do appreciate the advice.
Thanks again,
Patty

Now that is sweet.  Does "GT390" mean it has the 30ci engine?

I have 20 pounds of these agates that I bought some years ago at Tucson.  I know they came from the mideast but for the life of me I can't remember the name.
