There is no real difference in the tumbling machine to polish rock or metal, it has more to do with the polishing media inside the tumbler barrel. To tumble rock, use the rock tumbling abrasive and polish kit. To polish and work-harden any metal jewelry, use a stainless steel shot mix and a burnishing compound (water and a small amount of mild dish detergent will work well). Do not tumble jewelry with stones, glass, porous material or pearls.
