Buffs and Polishing Compounds

Many stones polish equally well with several buff and polishing compound combinations A very hard gem can be polished by a much softer polishing compound. Only one polishing compound should be used on a buff.

Polishing does not remove any material from the surface. If scratches develop the stone must be resanded.
