Lapis is a porous stone and should not be pickled if possible. The pickling solution is an acid and has soaked into your lapis and reacted quite a ways in. Next time, try painting on the solution with some care when working with porous stones. Look into some geological books for more information on the stones your working with, their porosities and reactivities. Or like when working with cloth, test out a small peice of the stone first. As for your jewelry, Im not sure if its recoverable. There is the possibility of a chemical bath or heating solving it, or possibly grinding away a LOT of the stone. You may need a chemist or more acurately, a geochemist. If your willing to experiment, I think heating will likely be your solution. Try something around 200-400 for a short time, and dont set fire to anything. Remember that the metal could melt around there depending on what you used to mount it. ::shrugs:: if your using these things, dont rely on anything like this without some research first or experimentation of your own. Get a good jewlers jem book.

How Do Knife Sharpeners Work?

Knife sharpeners are a way of preserving
knives and other such tools that have become blunt with use and therefore less

Sharpeners work by grinding the knife
against a hard, rough surface. Usually stone is the most common type of
sharpener but sandpaper (which has a soft surface but is hard), can also be

You can take your knives to a knife shop
where they will sharpen them for you (on average once a year), but if you are a
keen knife user and want to keep your knives sharp and in excellent condition,
it might be worth buying a sharpener of your own.

To sharpen your own knives you’ll need to invest in a good whetstone. These are
stones that are available in fine, medium and coarse grits.

The sharpener will come with
instructions about the angle you need to place the knife at in order to sharpen

You can also buy stones for polishing
and to complete the job properly, after you have sharpened your knife, you
should polish it.

CLR on my marble bathroom vantiy

You need a very fine abrasive polish such as Jewellers Rouge.

You use rubber sanding pad with a pad of soft cloth tired to it

You dampen the pad then while it is spinning you apply the stick of Jewellers Rouge to it so that some of the Rouge is transferred

You then use the pad to polish the marble

It can be a long job

Apparently a pizza stone was set on glasstop burner and now is scratched How can I get scratches out??

Hi there.
It depends on the depth of the scratches. For minor scratches I normally use a cheap toothpaste and a fine soft cloth. Polish compound and a polish machine can be used on deeper scratches.
