Polishing simulated zircon


#1

Hi! I am faceting ruby pink simulated zircon. It seemd to orange
peal on me. What do I use to polish zircon? I have read that you
polish zircon on tin with linde A.

Thanks!

If you really mean “simulated” then you need to know what material
was used to simulate the zircon and then go from there. If you mean
"synthetic" “lab created” stone, then you can polish just like
natural zircon.

Since, as you say, the stone is “simulated zircon” and since a
"simulated" stone is of a material other than the stone it is
supposed to simulate, the material is unknown, therefore the
polishing technique is also unknown.
