For those new to the hobby of rock tumbling, this starter kit is designed to get you up and running with the basics.  This one is a bit cheaper but not quite as versatile as Kits 1 or 2 - the cerium oxide polish in this kit is suitable for rocks in the 6 to 7 hardness range.  If you are doing harder rocks (such as garnet, topaz or garnet), you will need to choose a kit that includes either Tin Oxide or 1 micron Aluminium Oxide.


This kit contains four types of grit suitable for grinding and polishing:

  • #80 Silicon Carbide for Coarse Grind - 500 grams
  • #220 Silicon Carbide for Medium Grind - 500 grams
  • #600 Silicon Carbide for Sanding/Pre-Polish - 500 grams
  • Cerium Oxide for Polishing - 250 grams
  • BONUS 250 grams pack of plastic pellets

Grit is packed in strong plastic screw-top jars for convenient and easy storage.  Contents are enough to do around 3 to 4 batches of rock in a 3 pound tumbler such as the Lortone 3A or 33B.  

The polish included is Cerium Oxide which is the recommended choice for quartz type rocks (including jasper, agate, etc), petrified wood, and other commonly found tumbling rocks.  This is the kit we normally recommend to beginners.

This kit is designed for for rotary or barrel type tumblers - please see alternative Starter Kits C or D if you have a vibratory tumbler.
