Hello marble people.
Over the years I've dug...A LOT of marbles out of the groung doing concrete and masonry .One thing I've noticed,is that they were almost always scratched.Here's my question:Do you guys tumble marbles??

Jewelers polishing cloth or machine polisher is what i have been told .They have plans to build one on Land of Marbles and also sell them ,there are reputable folks there too that will polish them for a fee as well .Don't think tumbling would work but ?https://www.antique-bottles.net/forum/micons/m16.gif

If you go to one of the marble forums they have sections on cleaning and restoring and alot of people who clean them. They have been using machines to clean marbles for many years and they also can fix cracks and other damage. They have alot of before and after photos on Marble Connection and they charge 6 or 7 bucks per marble for cut and polish.
