500 grams of Crushed Nut Shell in size 1.5 to 3mm securely packaged in a sealed plastic bag.  This is a soft grit abrasive so will not scratch or damage your material and is suitable for use in both rotary and vibratory tumblers. 

May be used as a filler or cushioning medium for tumbling soft (Moh 4½ or below) or fragile materials such as opal, shell, coral, amber, seeds (nuts or sea beans), etc.  Nut Shell also does a good job removing tarnish from jewellery and other metal items. 

Nut Shell is perfect for dry polishing.
When polishing gold and silver jewellery, just add a little red rouge to the shell for a perfect shine.  If polishing other types of metals, we recommend using the Media Booster liquid - just 1 to 3 teaspoons per ½kg of shell media.  Alternatively, a little chrome oxide powder may be added (just a little) for working with white metals such as chrome plated, stainless steel, nickel plated, etc.

Proportions required for particular types of material may require some trial and error but you may need up to the full 500g package in a 3lb tumbler for material that is quite soft.

NB: Picture is Bulk,supplied in Strong Bag with Sticker as normal.
