I recently bought items from several folks on e-bay. Three vendors that stick out for price, helpfulness, cost of and combining shipping and communication were: duck83311, stone clouds, cole5774 (The Wyoming Rock Shop), opalite_one (Oregon Rockshop) and 917jfs. 917jfs stood out in particular. He sends me a message a day or two after completing the transaction saying that he was taking a couple of dollars off the price because he found a crack that wasn't visible or listed in the description. All of these folks were really friendly and helpful. They had great rough and slabs too!
These darn rocks will be my eventual undoing. My wife says I'm obsessed.

hollihox: Hi all! I'm new and have a question--if I'm in the wrong place, please point me in the right direction. I have a strand of Terra Rosa jasper flat rounds with a matt finish. Love the beads, hate the finish. Can I tumble them to get a polished finish?

jakesrocks: Welcome aboard hollihox. Yes, you're in the wrong place. You need to be in totally rock tumbling near the top of this page. But to answer your question, You'd want to use a vibratory tumbler.
