Soft and delicate stones such as rhodochrosite, fluorite, apatite, diopside, sphalerite, and strontium titanate have often presented difficulties in polishing.
Many users have resorted to wax laps for these stones. Wax laps usually do not produce crisp meets, and are fragile and easily damaged.
The LIGHTSIDE™ is a specialty lap with a smooth, durable surface and a remarkably low frictional coefficient against the stone to minimize heating effects.
