Is There A Way To Make My Crystals Shinier?
 Post a comment  
Share |

Hi there. I just received my order and was curious if you could recommend a method of making crystals shinier. For example, the lithium quartz is very dull, is there a way to add a bit of shine by buffing it or something to that extent. I have a dremel with polishing attachments, as well as a diamond cutting wheel that goes with it. I am just trying to figure out what I might be able to work with to get even just a little bit of a shine to some of the duller crystals. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

 

 

Hi E,
Thank you for your inquiry.  First and foremost it always helps to give your quartz crystals a good washing to increase shine and sparkle.  You could use castile soap and a soft brush to ensure you scrub off any debris or dust that is dulling the shine.  You can then utilize your dremel to increase it's shine, there is a good discussion with suggestions and tips on this board, such as utilizing a non-yellowing wax to add a gloss to the finish:
