||0-2 Micron, 14,000 mesh, 10cts. per bottle, Dupont Diamond.
Normal curve 0-2 works well for sapphire, tourmaline, amethyst, and garnet. Short curve, with a higher percentage of small particles may be more suitable for emeralds. 0-1 would be too slow for hard stones so most of the polishers prefer 0-2 because it can remove small scratches and polish quickly. Manufacturers should experiment to see which sizes work best for their particular application.
