These have all been polished by ME, which means that they have an excellent to mirror polish. The fine white lines and spots you see on a few of the pieces are the result of polishing compound that gets stuck in the tiny fractures, pits, and softer areas. I have not filled them in or worse yet colored them with a marker. You can remove it with some patience and a fine steel wire brush or color it yourself. I note where there are fractures (which will not break)! I just want you to know EXACTLY what you are buying.

If you've recently visited this page, be aware that your browser may have cached the images and although all browsers are supposed to catch new images and reload them, sometimes they don't. So hit the refresh button below just in case to make sure you have the lastest pics. For those of you who are looking for something specific in my for sale pages, such as when I list refurbished equipment, I might have a solution for you. You may want to try this: https://www.changedetection.com, I think all you do is sign up and enter the address of the page, for example if you are looking for equipment enter http://orerockon.com/equipment_for_sale.html, and they should send you an email when I add something. BUT, it probably will send you a notice when I change one letter of one sentence on the page, so you might get annoyed by it at some point. It's a great way to track when I list new polished items, since I typically don't change anything until something sells and/or I add items, and equipment, which I never change unless I add new pieces or change the status to "sold" as they sell.
There's a simple fix for Firefox:
Go to the url address: about:config. This should load the Firefox config settings in the window for editing. You may see a warning message stating, "This might void your warranty!" that will require you to click through to load the settings. Then find the browser.cache.check_doc_frequency key and change it to 1.

Type the email address above into your email program. The last character is the number one, not an I. Please note: My email address has changed as of Jan 2010 to evade the spammers. The old email address was inactivated soon thereafter so don't use it anymore as I will NOT get your email!

You MUST have a valid email address to use PayPal!
I will ignore orders from invalid email addresses (yes this happens, believe it or not)! You DO NOT NEED A PAYPAL ACCOUNT to use PayPal! If you choose to pay via eCheck, I will wait for it to clear before starting on your order. (Yes, I have been ripped off this way. Apparently it's a common scam used on PayPal.)
Do not ever email anyone your credit card number! If someone asks you for it, they are attempting to steal it! If you email me your credit card number, it will likely be stolen since one of tens of thousands of bots will probably intercept any email that looks like it has a credit card number in it. I wouldn't know what to do with it anyway, that's what PayPal is for.
