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.
