Re: Re: Re: Galena
Actually, John, I do not know a lot about polishing. But I do know that ulexite is quite soft (2.5 Mohs). If you have some white toothpaste, you might try some on a soft cloth and manually polish the ends of your specimen. White toothpaste usually contains a finely divided mild abrasive (Check the contents). And a few minutes rubbing followed by a thorough rinse should both clean and polish the mineral.
