Normally the plastic pellets are used in the pre-polish and polish stages to add back the correct volume to the tumbler barrel which was lost in the previous two grinding stages.  This helps to cushion the rock to prevent scuffed or white edged stones and assists in obtaining a better polish.  The pellets are reusable but use them back into the same stage as previously used.

Plastic Pellets

Plastic Pellets

Plastic pellets, these are sometimes used as a filler to cushion rock in ROTARY tumblers especially when doing fragile or harder to polish stones such as apache tears, glass, rose quartz and other things.  Use them in the pre polish and polish to help prevent white edged poorly polished stones. These pellets FLOAT, making it easier to separate from the rock when done. They are reusable, although they will wear out. Don't mix them between the ones used to grind or those used to polish.

Note:  Our pellets are usually White in color.  These are the same pellets as the yellow pellets we've had in the past, just a different color.  You may receive either WHITE or YELLOW pellets.  There is no choice in colors.
