Got a nice clear peridot colored piece and cant seem to polish it very well. Have tried darkside with cerium ox, and greenway with the chrome oxide battstick. Darkside just didnt work and the greenway got close but not good enough. Has anybody had any success?
Well fine. So I grabbed my matrix and used whatever diamond was still on it. 50-100,000. Results not too shabby. True it has many fine inclusions but nothing fatal. No cracks. Not sure what that junk is on the table, its only in the picture, but at 3.7 cts and 9.4 MM, I like it.
FYI, 43, 44.5 on pavilion.
Hey Barb, can you move this to an appropriate forum? I don't know how. Thanks
