In the past, natural river polished tumbled stones were found near river banks. Thousands of years in running water made them smooth and shiny. In modern times, a large amount of rough stones of the same kind are put into a huge barrel with special materials. The barrel, attached to a machine, turns around so that the stones actually smooth each other. The quality of the tumbling depends on the added materials and the time. The best results are when the machines work for about 6 weeks.
