Rotary Rock Tumbling Labradorite – 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 Labradorite! This was a highly requested gemstone, because it’s extremely difficult to tumble well. The fragile cleavage planes tend to chip and fracture during any stage of tumbling. Labradorite is Mohs hardness 7, but is extremely fragile so this tutorial includes both a rotary tumbler and the Raytech Tumble-Vibe 5. It you do manage to get a pretty shine, the rainbow flash of the Labradorite is well worth the effort! Due to it’s fragile a finicky nature – Tumbling Labradorite is an Advanced level project.

Check out the video below to watch my entire process and see the final shine of this flashy Labradorite!
