Highest Grade Cerium Oxide Lapidary Polish

For years I had been using a 5 lb. bag of true "optical grade" cerium oxide polish for all my lapidary work. It produced far superior results to the typical lapidary polishes for me. (Not to toot my own horn but I frequently get comments on how amazing my polish is :). When I ran out a couple years ago and went to find some more I saw a lot on Amazon and lapidary supply websites advertized as "Optical Grade" BUT it was so cheap it got me suspicious. To make it easy for you, low grade cerium oxide is tan (medium grades) to reddish (very low grade) in color. It works great for tumbling, but I refuse to use it for my lapidary work where I demand as close to a "liquid" polish as is humanly possible. BTW I don't like to keep secrets so if you are interested I can give you some tips on what to use and how to work with it. Low grade cerium is comparatively cheap, you can get it in bulk quantity for $25/lb. You can pay way too much to dealers and especially the Amazon ripoff sellers. The cheap white powders being passed off as "optical grade cerium oxide", according to an industry source I contacted, are actually aluminum oxide (maybe with some cerium mixed in), which gives decent results for tumblers but isn't any better than low grade cerium for slabs, cabs, and specimens. It's dirt cheap in bulk quantity, and therefore the sellers are making a couple thousand percent profit on a few ounces of it by lying and passing it off as cerium. My source told me that true optical grade, used by telescope, precision optics, military suppliers, and the silicon chip industries, is over 99% pure cerium oxideby definition. And to boot the particle size matters depending on the material being polished, so all grades are not equal. He suggested an optimal size for quartz and so I bought in bulk (becase I had to LOL).

This is 99.90% pure cerium oxide powder, it's the "real deal". If you can find it at all this is a lot less than you'll pay for an ounce. If you use it correctly a little bit goes a very long way. The 1/2 lb. bag lasted me a year and I polish at least a couple hundred pieces a year, from cabochons to 50 pound chunks (yikes!).

NEW 7" diameter by 7/8" hole dry overhead sanding disks!

If you have an overhead sander you know how expensive high quality disks are. Paper-backed, generic disks wear out FAST and can actually tear apart. My disks are all resin bonded to a waterproof polyester backing that is impossible to tear. The silicon carbide grit itself is resin bonded (the disk is called resin-resin bonded), not glued on like the cheap disks. These last me well over 40 pieces. The cheap paper disks tend to get used up or start to break down in under 20 pieces. I buy in bulk so I get a big price break over single disks. The typical progression used is 60-100-220-400-polish. 36 is used for pieces that have larger saw marks. In general the coarser the grit the longer it lasts. IF you can even find them sold individually they are way overpriced! At just over $1.00 each these are a bargain! Tip: to get a really flat surface cut eight 3/4" slits around the hole. These also work with a bull wheel type sander.

Thundereggs

PLEASE READ THIS BEFORE YOU START SHOPPING!

SOLD OUT means I HAVE NONE. Please do not click on the Cart button if the Available Quantity says SOLD OUT

(Note: I often have slabs of material long after I have sold out of rough, so ask about slabs if the material says Sold Out). Please note the sizes of eggs - if it says large eggs then ordering 1 or 2 pounds isn't going to be possible! Slabs are sold by the square inch. For example, a 4"x4" slab is 16 square inches. Please Note:  I always have slabs available unless the Available Quantity says otherwise. For slabs, I only charge for usable material if the slab has unsuable portions (for example, thunderegg slabs have both unusable matrix and usable centers).Please do not order more than the quantity available. Please pay attention to the size of the rough. I will not break up rough rocks to accomodate small quantities.
Many of the thundereggs below are fluorescent, sometimes very strongly, in shortwave ot longwave UV light. I note where some or most are fluorescent. For some examples from my collection CLICK HERE. NOTE: Due to the tremendous amount of time involved to extract useful agate/jasper slabs from a thunderegg, I am no longer slabbing thundereggs, so when the slabs run out they will no longer be offered.

Rough Tumbled Montana Moss Agate I have about 30 pounds of rough tumbled pieces (smaller than average, from a few ounces to about 1/2 lb.) and more on the way. Some may be the black blob patterns BUT if it's really obvious I'm keeping it. (I'm tumbling to see if removing the white skin layer makes it easier to spot it, if the skin doesn't come off then it goes back in the bucket). It is tumbled to 60/90 grit (stage 1), so if you want to keep going it needs to start at stage 2 (120/220 or 150/220 grit). Most is not suitable for the small tumblers, you need a 12 pound barrel or larger (or a good size vibratory tumbler) to finish these.

It is a little different to work with than agate, using all diamond and cerium for polishing gives a much better and smoother shine. It still looks great if you treat it like an agate.

These are literally the last 10 buckets that came out of my truck. Click each photo for the large version. I have not rearranged the rocks. It was raining, so they are wet. I did pick most of the leaves off the top though :)

 

 

Questions? CONTACT ME HERE

If you have a question about ordering see this page

PLEASE READ MY POLICIES HERE BEFORE YOU ORDER!
By ordering from this site you are agreeing to all the stated policies on the linked page.

I accept electronic payments or credit cards via PayPal only or in person! If you have a PayPal account, would like to set up an account, or would like to use their one-time transfer feature without signing up for an account, please feel free to try the shopping cart by clicking the cart button next to each item. I will bill S&H charges to your PayPal account once I have your order ready to ship. If you don't want to use PayPal, please CONTACT ME HERE.
You MUST allow cookies and popups for the PayPal site to work! (I get complaints that Paypal is "broken". It is ALWAYS because your web browser and/or firewall is blocking information from Paypal).
You MUST have a valid email address to use PayPal! If you give Paypal a non-existent email address then I won't be able to invoice you for S&H charges or communicate with you in any way! So double and triple check it! Also I cannot ship to any other address than the one you gave Paypal. Their guarantee of delivery in original condition only applies to the address you gave them. If you want me to ship to another address you must change it in Paypal.
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.
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.
