Here is a couple of stone hearts I made out of rocks. The top left is pink and green granite. Still scarred by the grinder step. The bottom left is a fluorescent rock heart past the second step of disc sanded up to 220 grit. It is calcite, willamite and franklinite. It glows green and red under a shortwave UV light. The big one is finished and buffed to a glowing shine. It is a green feldspar with dots of fools gold in it.

Not too long. The polishing step and sanding take the longest. The grinding is the fastest part one hour tops. The hearts go 1 step grind is the top left then step 2 sand is the black red and white on the bottom left then the big one on the right is step 3 polish and done.each heart is at a different finished step.
