First time poster here, thanks to all you fine jewelry artists out there who help me every day!
I have a question and I’m sure people have answers. How can I safely remove adhesive from the back off stones? I bought a couple pairs of stones that were held together on pieces of very sticky tape and I’m not sure what is the best way to clean them without damaging them. They’re beautiful orange and gray Eclipse Jasper and I’m wondering if I can use something liked goo gone or if that might discolor the stone (I know the top is polished and likely safe but I am concerned more about the backs). While I’m on the subject of cleaning stones does anyone have any recommendations for removing sharpie ink from them backs too? I purchased a few stones years ago and the price is written on the back in permanent ink.
