Taking goldiggers advice, I live in Southern Vermont and have been finding a lot of garnnets.If I put them in a tummler will they clean up and what do you use as a medium as they are fairly hard?

It depends on what size they are. Garnets mostly come in crystal form in nature and are beautiful when surface polished rather than tumbled. If you have a cloth wheel and jewelers rouge, they will really look good when you polish the surfaces. If they are too small for that, you could try tumbling but you may round the facets a bit.

Are they free garnets or buried in granite? Can you take some pictures with a ruler next to them?

It's all about that moment when metal that hasn't seen the light of day for generations frees itself from the soil and presents itself to me.
