Rock tumbler kit review

1 April 2022
The tumbler works great and polished the big rocks up perfectly, disappointed in the stones that were provided in the kit, 90% are very dull colours of rocks I could pick up at one local park, the only nice stones provided ended up the size of pencil ends by the end of the tumbling, would recommend tumbler and grits but if your buying the kit for the rocks like I did, you will be very disappointed (also no petrified wood was included what I was the most excited for in the kit).

Aussie Sapphire Response
NOTE FROM SUPPLIER: Thank you for your revew. We are sorry that you weree disappointed in the rocks icluded. Note that tumbling action on ALL rocks is much improved if you include smaller rocks in the load - this is why we include a range of sized rocks in the bag. If you only tumble larger rocks, then grit/polish does not carry well to all areas and tumbling is less effective. So we recommend avoiding the temptation to only do rocks that will end up an impressive size or the process will be more frustrating. Rocks in the batch vary according as supplies come in - it is a random selection and not hand picked. It really is just intended to help get people started immediately. Half the fun of tumbling is in the collecting of rocks so we wish you well as you continue in the hobby. For those wishing to purchase more interesting types, we suggest attending your local gem show where you can see a range of material at usually very affordable prices.
