    Can smoky quartz as clear as clear quartz & colourless?

  3. T1na Ba1ley on September 1, 2022 at 9:27 pm

    I would like to do this !

  4. Paul Carder on September 1, 2022 at 9:37 pm

    Thanks for this video. It came along just in time for the 2 lb of clear quartz rough I’ve been wanting to tumble. Keep the timely videos coming!

  5. IncompetentISU on September 1, 2022 at 9:37 pm

    I’m shocked by how long it takes to tumble crystals! Never would have imagined it would be such a process.
    Also I haven’t a clue what you mean by surface imperfections – they looked so perfect after the first week to me! hahhaa

  6. Alex Jeanlouis on September 1, 2022 at 9:43 pm

    Also I have rocks that I’m not sure what they are, would you be able to help me if I could some how send you a video of the rocks I found, most are quartz but I think some have other stuff in it but I’m not sure, new to this lol but love it

    Do you take requests? I would love a ruby fuchite meditation and property

  8. Heather Connor on September 1, 2022 at 9:46 pm

    Interested to know at what stage you begin adding ceramic media, and how much. It looks as if there is little if any in the first coarse grinds. Thanks.

    I have been wondering about buying a rocktumbler, as it’s not uncommon to find quartz where I live. What would you say is the minimum size for raw quarts for it to be worth tumbling? (I usually find anything from the size of the first joint of my thumb, to bigger than my fist)

  10. Alex Jeanlouis on September 1, 2022 at 9:55 pm

    I have a few huge quartz rocks I got from a landscaper that are way too big to tumble, how do I break it into smaller pieces. I tried a hammer and it didn’t break.

  11. sayeh025 on September 1, 2022 at 9:55 pm

    Ohhh and your videos are greatly appreciated!!! I watch them often, thank you so much

  12. The Rock Diaries on September 1, 2022 at 9:57 pm

    Great information! I was definitely curious about the toughness of quartz, seeing how my rose quartz is coming along, I was definitely wondering about it, based on the chipping and it just looks a little bit more fragile than I expected for such a hard rock. Definitely will make sure we keep the ceramic media topped up through the rest of our finer stages! (Edit: can i say definitely one more time?)

  13. anthony suttles on September 1, 2022 at 9:57 pm

    Very nice.

  14. Peter R. Taylor on September 1, 2022 at 9:59 pm

    What do you mean by tumbling the stone?
