Hi All,
I suspect that the smoothed/melted look on Campo crystals is created
in a rock tumbler. After the mass has been reduced to fragments each
individual should be extremely sharp; I expect they get tumbled,
perhaps with ball bearings, to round off the points and sharp edges
and make them safe to handle without getting "bit"!
Happy hunting,
