Rotary Rock Tumbling Moonstone – Process & Techniques

This is one in a series of Rock Tumbling “How-To” videos that I have been posting on YouTube. This video features me tumbling Moonstone! Moonstone is a beautiful gemstone that comes in many different colors. It can have a shimmery effect in the light that is called ‘adularescence.’ This cat’s eye effect makes the moonstone a pleasure to watch and look for the shimmer of the stones between each tumbling stage. The challenge with Moonstone is its perfect cleavage that makes the stone a little fragile and prone to chipping during tumbling. Making sure you have enough cushioning media in the tumbler is key! Tumbling Moonstone is an Intermediate level project.

Check out the video below to watch my entire process and see the gorgeous multi-colored batch of Moonstone!
