When I started the stone had a light shine, and lots of etchmarks. The original intent was to remove etchmarks and go to 400 diamonds and then use 800 grit honing powder. Only the honing powder produced no result. In fact, the stone looked dull and lifeless at this point. Tried color enhancer, no luck.At this point, I was simply looking for some type of result, a way to put some life back into the stoneI started (using VS diamonds) at 120 because there were several etch marks. When they didn't come out with 120 I dropped to 50 and was successful. Then I just ran the diamonds up to 800 and tried to polish with 5x. No result.Then I proceeded up the grits. Tried MB 12. No result. Tried 5x again, no result still. In the end, the only thing that gave me any "shine" was crystalizer, which looked aweful (but shiney).Now I have to go back and get some better results.In a message dated 4/7/2011 5:40:19 P.M.
