- Always wear protection for eyes, hands etc before you start hand polishing. Wear safety glass, water proof gloves and apron before starting polishing steps. Secure/fasten the stone to be polished to ensure it does not slide while polishing. Spray thin film of water on stone, and start polishing with grit 50 in circular clock wise direction. Verify the entire polished stone surface has same level of smoothness before moving to next grit. Squeegee water and look at 30-45 degree angle on the surface to ensure same degree of smoothness. Generally up to grit 400, one can see scratches and above grit 400 grit surface is be scratch free (Not visible with naked eyes). If surface is not at same level of smoothness, continue with polishing with same grit, and focus on the area that still has uneven scratches (till grit 400) or uneven smoothness (Grit 800 and up). Repeat step 3, for each higher grit one by one starting with grit 50, then 100, 200, 400, 800, 1500, and 3000. Don’t skip any grit in between, or else it will not achieve the best polishing result. Most of the stone will show shine starting at grit 800 and will keep improving. If you still sees scratches beyond grit 800 and 1500, it is a sign that step 3 is not followed correctly in lower grits.
