sealing lepidolite bookends

I have made a pair of book ends of medium grained lepidolite with interesting inclusions which are very attractive when wet. No use wasting time on trying to polish a medium grained lepidolite. However, doing a med-coarse grind on a lap
to remove saw marks and then using a sealer would seem to be a reasonable approach. These pieces are for my own library, but if I could seal these with a safe,long lasting, and non-yellowing finish, it might make sense to sell a few.

Any suggestions on what would be the best long term sealer and process to use?
