I just finished it. It was sent to me to be repaired.  This is what it looked like. It was pitted no polish and had a soft spot in it. Made sure it was clean and dry, I coated it with bond optic wrapped it in plastic wrap and put it in a vacuum chamber for a few hours. Than refinished it after the resin was cured.

You are doing God's work on the fix it up job!  Beautiful workmanship.  Really gotta love the lace agates, the intricacy of the banding says it all.
