Have a great Ark stone from Aiden1211. Good box, no big divs, and would like to give it the final super surface.
I have granite and glass, as well as other surfacing mediums. Just want to have the final surface for super fine edges.
Stone has a “honey color” and seems to be really hard.
Living in N. MS, the diamond media is not readily availably.
Keep in mind that the stone will do good work
as is. Just thought that I might want tp take it to the next level.
Ideas or methods are most welcome.

No Amazon? I’d try granite and paper first.

Granite and paper is what I use to flatten my black Arkansas stone.

I have a translucent Ark stone and it’s so darn hard Diamond plates will not cut it.
It will knock the pointyness off of a Diamond.
So good luck finding some thing that will work.
If you do let me know.

Crap! I should have said “MEDIA”. My Latin is not so well proved.
