    I have a 1cm square faceted Labradorite and its previous life was in a ring so its a bit scratched, wondered if I should use the diamond polishing paste on that. How do you know what "thickness" to use.

    Start with the fine and go up to coarser, grade by grade until you see it is working. Then re-trace your steps to get a shine.

    Because it is faceted, the scratch will be mainly on the top surface, the table.

    So to keep the shape, I would smear the paste on paper on a flat surface and rub the stone on that. Dennis.
