Q.
I recently purchased a string of crystal quartz with a matte finish. Is there any way I can polish these stones so they will shine?

A.
Remove the quartz beads from their string and tumble them in a rotary tumbler with the appropriate abrasive polishes to remove the matte finish and bring them to a glossy shine. Do not use faceted stones in the tumbler as the facets will be softened and diminished by the abrasive materials in the polishing kit.
