Re Gearloose Cerium and Alox sticks. In our hot humid summer they are hygroscopic - absorb water and melt away - keep them in the frig

I have had some success polishing quartz with Cerium Oxide on a Darkside lap but get a better and quicker polish with a Pol-a-Gem lap from the States, particularly if I pre-polish with a Nu-Bond 1200 grit lap.
