Amber polishing comound


#1

Hello. I am DocCarrie. I am the most important part of the
jewelry industry–the customer. I joined your group to learn
more about amber, lapis, etc, since I like to be very informed
when I work with a jeweler. That way I can tell the good guys–my
kind of jeweler–from the used car salesmen. After all I don’t
buy cars from jewelers or jewelry from GM.

To Stephen and Markus: There is a German lady in Ventura, CA,
who sells fine German sandpaper, such as 600. She does not sell
through stores or other vendors, but is otherwise very pleasant
to do business with. She may carry the German polishing
compounds or know a local source. I found her through the German
embassy here.*

*I have found embassies to be wonderful sources for their
country’s products here and overseas. How else would I have
found the best Swedish retaurant in America? (They have a
fabulous mailing list for prix fixe special dinners.)

Hi DocCarrie,

Thanks for your note. The compound is called Atol 6, produced by
menzerna-werk, Inh. Dr.-Ing. W. u. L. Burkart, Karlsruhe,
