I can't stop giggling. I placed an order with Cooksongold the other day to get some more gold for Mum's pearls. (It was M&D's 30th wedding anniversary in Sept and Dad got Mum some lovely burgundy, temporary strung pearls for her to do whatever she wants with them. I've already strung a classic knotted style necklace for her but the next one is going to be pearls suspended on twisted gold wire...pics when done.) Well, as I was putting an order in anyway, I thought I'd get a bar of tripoli for me. I already have a bar of rouge for the final polishing stages but didn't have any tripoli for the initial polishing stages (I've been using wet&dry sandpaper). I assumed the tripoli would be pretty much the same as the rouge...
