ROCK TUMBLING TIPS
Best rocks to tumble?
Some types of rocks do not tumble as well as others. The best rocks for tumbling should be as solid as possible, have a somewhat smooth texture, and be free from large cracks. Jasper, Agate, quartz, and obsidian rocks are usually excellent choices for rock tumbling and will produce good results.
What can you do with your polished tumbled rocks?
Many people make neat jewelry items with their new tumbled stones. Some easy to make items from tumbled stones include: earrings, key-chains, rings and tie-tacks. Tumbled stones also have many decorative uses. Try placing some in your potted plants, or perhaps craft one of a kind refrigerator magnets. Putting a bunch around a place setting or candle can make an otherwise boring item look great. Don't forget the endless gift possibilities too.
