We use a rotary tumbler for a week for the first grind with 80 grit silicone carbide . This will shape the stones and take sharp edges off.
The vibratory tumbler tends to keep the general shape of the item being tumbled
We then use a vibratory tumbler with 220 grit silicone carbide for two days. With a vibratory tumbler it is best to use ceramic media as a filler rather than plastic pellets as the pellets tend to float on the top in a vibratory tumbler. Switch to 600 grit silicone carbide for a further two days. Now its time to polish. We have ceramic media that we only use for polishing to make sure there is no cross contamination. We use a number of different polishes depending on the type of rocks to be polished. The stones are run in the polish for 1 – 3 days.
