Polish rocks to create your own beautiful key-chains and jewellery pieces.

Rock tumbling is a great way to indulge your interest in gemstones, rocks and minerals. Basically it is the process where rough rocks are polished into smooth and shiny stones. You'll be excited by the results.

This electrically powered and affordable, first-tumbler grinds away all the stones rough edges in two stages, and then in two more stages completes polishing and final polishing. The finished stones are brilliant!

This Rock Tumbler is faster than nature, but the fascinating process is noisy and still takes time and patience a complete grinding and polishing cycle can take between 12 to 18 days, but provides hours of enjoyment as you open the tumbler and inspect the progress.

You'll be amazed at how ordinary looking rocks found in your back yard, or down the beach are transformed into something special, with incredible hidden patterns, colours and structures.

The tumbler kit includes stones, four stages of grinding powder and a craft kit for jewellery making.

How does it work?

Nature polishes stones you find at the beach or along the riverbank by gently washing them in water and sand until the rough edges are smoothed away. The long, slow process reveals the beautiful colours and composition of stones. The rock tumbler does the same thing, with the tumbling action and grit speeding up the process to create stunning polished stones in 2-4 weeks.
