Re: Removing emeralds from Matrix
You don't seem to be getting any answers, so let me share my ignorance. While the "softer" grits in a tumbler might sound like a good idea, I have my doubts. The beryls will grind against each other to their detriment. I think I would stick to maybe end-nippers, small cold chisels and light hammers, and maybe quartz sandpaper.
