Malachite Rough

By admin  

How do you polish Malachite and other rocks and minerals?

I purchased some rough malachite speciments off websites, and i was wondering what i need to polish these guys to make them look nice and shiny?

Im not looking to purchase really expensive machinary, the cheaper the better.

Is it possible to get some sandpaper and go at it? Or will that just take way too much time?

Thank you in advane,

My only option for you would be is to buy a rock tumbler, which can be purchased at Fry's Electronics in the childrens section where all the science kits are, Toys R Us, or a D & J Hobby store which is located here in Campbell, Ca. Some of these rock tumblers are reasonably priced.

Shining your Malachite with mineral oil and a soft rag after tumbling would do the trick. If you prefer to use sand paper and mineral oil, it will take a very long time.

Have fun in your mineral collections!
