Hi all,
I have just purchased some Hxtal (expensive over here) and would like some advice in using it to stabilise some sort stones that I have.
I have read about stabilizing by placing gems in a jar with epoxy and acetone and leaving for a week. Using pine resin (which does colour) and or just coating first one side and then the other with hxtal.
Others say heat and pressure???
But I do not know the mixes to use. Yes hxtal states 3 to 1. Would I just coating and does it sink in enough.
I have some chrysocolli and also some Blue John that need stabilizing.
Would be greatly for all advice that can be given.
