    I got a rock tumbler for Christmas from my FIL, and this is the stone I want to tackle. I am not sure if I should try to break it, so I am dealing w/ smaller pieces, or just leave as is & see what happens.
    I got this piece of Lepidolite at my local Rock Shop…see

    Hi Alice! Thanks, & Happy new Year!

    It’s a machine that you can put rocks, gems, finished jewlery in(not all at the same time — LOL) to polish them. I got mine from Fusion Beads. They come in different sizes depending upon your needs, Nicole. Hope that explanation helped. :D

    Lynn, I finally am….I cant believe it! I have been waiting for the kiln for almost three years, ever since I began working with glass!
    The tumbler is from Harbor Freight- it has not arrived yet- I got the card in the mail yesterday, so I will let you know!
    The Kiln’s Paragon Firefly from Rio Grande and it is a tabletop/countertop model! :) :D 8)

    Alice the rock is roughly 2inches by 1 1/2 inch,
    and I have a whole lot of unpolished smaller stones on my desk, including some amethyst, and the other large stone is garnet

    Btw, Lynn- how big is your tumbler, and do you get to play with it often?

  20. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Lorrie, mine is the 3-pound size by Lortone that uses 1-pound of shot. I really love it! It does a great job on stones and on polishing jewelry/metal when I’m done creating something. :D

    Mommykat Bubbly Chick says:

    Thanks, Lynn! I hope mine will be great for polishing my silversmithing pieces too! Glad to hear you use it that way, I was thinking I couldnt ask cause it was a silly question! :P

  22. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    It is great for polishing silver & other metals and helping to remove tool marks when you’re done. :D

    Remember, there are no silly questions, just silly beaders! LOL
