The majority of tumbled stones are made using popular/commonly known stones or bright colorful rocks that have a Mohs hardness between the numbers 5 and 8. The Mohs hardness test is considered to be one of the most important tests in the process of identifying a mineral. This is because the stones that fall between these numbers are known to be quite durable so this means these stones can be given a good polish without the fear of it breaking apart. In fact, the best type of stones that are used for tumbling are ones that are dense, hard, and smooth. An example of these hard dense stones are Aventurine, Agate, Jasper, Quartz, Tigers’ Eye, Moonstone, Obsidian, Petrified Wood, Hematite, Feldspar, and Dalmatian stone to name a few. When tumbling it is important to avoid stones that are found to be either too soft or contain a gritty texture, this is because they will either fall apart or not give the desired end result.
