Tumbling Bezel-Set Labradorite

by Kaley

I have a piece I've been meaning to tumble but it already has a set piece of labradorite in it. Have you had any experience tumbling this gemstone?

Stacy's Answer:

Hi Kaley!

I have tumble-polished labradorite numerous times without any problems. The labradorite I've tumbled has been of a very good quality with a high-polish finish on the surface of the stone. I tumbled the item by itself so that nothing heavy would hit the stone (cabochon) and used the standard jewelry-mix Stainless steel shot with water and dish soap.
