This is a complete tutorial on how to tumble obsidian. The batch I do in this video is mostly Apache Tears with a few snowflake obsidian pieces thrown in to add a little interest.
Thanks to Christina Jelinek for editing the closed captions for this video.
Here is the recipe I mention at the end of the video: http://rockhoundlounge.com/yabbfiles/Attachments/tumbling_obsidian.pdf

– KINGSLEY NORTH –
Kingsley North is a lapidary store in Michigan’s U.P. They make a great cab machine and sell many other brands too. They have a huge selection rough rock, tumblers, grit, jewelry supplies etc. at good prices. I buy most of my coarse grit from here in 45 lb. bags. It’s the best price I have found. If you buy using the following link, I make a small commission.
This is the cabbing machine I use:
– THE ROCK SHED –
I buy a lot of lapidary supplies from The Rock Shed. I don’t make money from your purchases there, but they have good prices and good service. This is where I buy my finer grits and polish.
– AMAZON STOREFRONT –
I also have an Amazon storefront. This is where you can find other products you may have seen in my videos. As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases. It doesn’t cost you extra.
