• Each tumblestone begins as a rough stone. Any stone or crystal can be selected.

• The stones are put in tumbler – a rubber-lined barrel machine which spins it around at a slow, constant rate.

• Various grades of grit and sand along with water are put in with the stones; the process of tumbling takes about three weeks.

• Eventually the stones are smoothened to what we call tumblestones.
