Started work today on a negro table top.
Ran the diamonds from 220 thru 1800. Made sure to do excellent clean up between grits. Checked all pads for residue before starting each grit. Also checked the stone between grits for random scratches that may have been left from the previous grit. After each cut I found none. After 1800, polished with 5X which gave a nice polish but lacked a little consistency and pop. Tried to correct this with crystalizer but the steel wool left scratches behind. Then tried some black color enhancer. when I finished applying it, I saw scratches (like 400 grit scratches) that were previously not visible at all. What am I missing ???
I know that this is a soft stone, but I have never had this problem polishing it.
