    20-30 minutes to polish on the wheels seem like a long time. Would it take less time if you got a 3000 wheel and went to that from the 1200?

    I collected some stones on the beach, some of them are jasperish orange, very dark green, black, and some purple. I want to know what mineral are those, are they valuable enough to keep (or even sell), and want to shape them like shown in the thumbnail, shiny nice stones. But I have no experience in cutting, grinding, even polishing. What should I do? Should I bring my stones to gemstone specialist? (Someone who cuts, and sells gemstones) or just keep my stones as it is? They are already smooth since they were found on the beach (erosion or something like that) but have no shape, very random)

    Hey Liz. Jeff from Tassi here. I watched a video on polishing using different grits of sandpaper, finishing up with diamond polish (for cars). Do you think this would work for the ribbon stone l purchased from you? Also is your website up and running yet. I know it was down for a while, due to unforeseen issues. I hope you & Wal hd a great summer.
