Final Polish on Chryscolla-Malachite

Thanks for all the good suggestions. I was able to get back to this
project yesterday, took the stones to the buffer with some Zam, and
got the polish I wanted. This was my first attempt at cutting and
polishing stones, except for a couple of practice stones. So I’m
very thankful to the Orchid members who helped me understand the
differences in cutting soft vs. harder stones, and in cutting a
stone that is made up of different mineral elements. I’m the kind of
person who learns best by doing and I now have a very full
understanding of what “undercutting” means.

Thanks again.
