Polishing Quartz


#1

Hi, everybody:

I would like to know which abrasives to use to polish quartz in a
tumbler. I know that I have to start with a coarse grit until
finishing with a fine grit.

My questions: What abrasives should I use:

alumina (Al2 O3): what grits?
silicon carbide (what grits?)
cerium oxide?

Is there an internet site where to get such ? Which books
should I buy about this topic?

Please send the answer in pvt directly to my address. Thank you very
much in advance.
