Holy Cow polishing compound

Hi, folks,

In the past, there have been a number of comments about a polishing
compound called Holy Cow that some people really like. I am unable to
locate it-- can someone tell me where they get it?

Thanks!
–Noel

Hi Noel,

Guy Clark is the fellow who makes it and you can contact him at
clarksrock@aol.com His ebay seller name is holycowpolish too if that
email doesn’t work, pretty sure that’s it though.

I love the stuff and couldn’t live without it so hope you have some
to play with soon :slight_smile: Carol

Hi Noel,

The product “Holy Cow” polishing compound was developed by a fellow
named “Guy Clark”. He is also the main distributor.

I have only seen the Holy Cow product on Ebay. I have tried it but
not sure if it is really better. So far I have not found anything to
beat cerium oxide (at least for opals).

I’ve just been in touch with Guy Clark via his ebay store
holycowpolish and it looks like that email address is still the one
he’s using.

FWIW it looks like he’s asking $11 per oz for orders under 6 oz.
“Larger bulk orders of one half pound ($75.00), one pound ($135.00)
and five pounds ($515.00) are available and their prices include basic
shipping but not insurance”

Todd, if you haven’t tried Holy Cow on opals, I recommend that you
do. I have no interest in the company, just found it to give me a
better polish than cerium or tin oxide on leather OR felt.

 what is holy cow like and what does it do 

Andy, Holy Cow looks much like white cerium oxide. I’m not precisely
sure what it is, but most of the folks I know who’ve discussed it
believe it to be a mixture of optical grade cerium oxide (the kind
that breaks down into smaller and smaller particles) and Linde “A”

I thought I was getting a fairly decent polish on opals, but Holy
Cow works wonders for me. It also improved my polish on turquoise,
angelite and rhodochrosite, as well as other, relatively soft
stones. Thinking about it, I’m going to try polishing some silver
with it soon, just to see.
