Hi, Jason with We're making the rock charm necklace today. We've done all of the polishing and the drilling, up until the final two steps. And it's come a long way from the rough rock that it was. It's smooth and it has a better shape, the edges aren't so sharp. So, now we're going to cut out five polishing steps by simple trick. This bit here is like a foam rubber type of a bit, and this is a cloth bit. And what we'll do is we'll go over it with this bit first and this will actually start to shine it. And then in the next step, we put some zam on it, which is jewelry polish and use a high speed with the cloth tip, and it will shine just like obsidian. So for this next step we're just going to go over the whole thing. And this will get kind of hot and it will kind of rub across your fingers, but just keep in mind it's not going to burn you. It's not going to hurt, but you'll probably hit yourself with it. So be prepared to hit yourself. And if the rock starts getting hot, like in the steps before, put it in the water and let it dry. Don't try to go over it with these while it is wet. So we'll do that one. And then go on from there.
