Re: Re: Polishing Sonora Sunset

I just bought a slab of this on eBay.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=300206321802

This material is solid and I didn't have any problems with pits or fractures.
I used my normal system for soft copper based minerals. Tin Oxide on soft leather at slower rotational speed. Spray a bit of water on lap to keep up the normal friction to polish. I would think Linde A would also work.

This material is really nice. Bright red cuprite against robin's egg blue and black.
