Lightside Polishing Lap
The LIGHTSIDE™ is a specialty lap with a smooth, durable surface and a remarkably low frictional coefficient against the stone to minimize heating effects to make it especially useful for polishing soft and delicate stones such as rhodochrosite, fluorite, apatite, diopside, sphalerite, and strontium titanate.

In the past, many people have used wax laps, which usually do not produce crisp meets, and are fragile and easily damaged. This lap is robust and leaves nice flat facets compared to wax. It’s also easy to wash off, decontaminate, and change polishes – it’s like having a collection of wax laps! (NOTE: do NOT use this lap for Calcite).
