I know that feeling "I'm afraid I'll ruin the piece". , but a guy who taught me a lot about lapidary always said " Never fall in love with your stone", meaning don't be afraid to work on it to improve its shape, shine, or size to make it what you really want it to be.  If you love it too much you'll leave it with blems, or otherwise not as desirable to you as if you had work on it as much as you knew it should be.  I used to be afraid to keep tumbling and now I indeed keep going until I'm happy.  Tom
