How to polish New Zealand Jade?

I was given a couple of pieces of nice colored New Zealand Jade (Nephrite)to cut and polish for a friend, as soon as I try to polish it I get an orange peel type effect. I have been using Tin and Cerium oxide on felt and leather which I think is undercutting softer areas of the stone. The undercutting is not deep just that it ruins any attempt to get a good polish.
