Re: Once a stone is tumbled?

Zac,
Sure, but be advised, typical recovery may be 20% to 30%. Alot depends on the shape and fractures, flaws, type of cut etc. Cost may be a major factor if your having it cut by an experienced cutter. But on the plus side, if it's polished it will be easier to evaluate. Post a picture or check with your local club.
