I have used this product in the past, and this tumbler will get decent results for the price... There are several reviews here complaining about it being too loud or taking too long, etc... I think that the people who are disappointed in this product have never worked with gems before. Of course it's going to be loud- it's a bucket of rocks tumbing around in there! And no one is going to put anything close to precious stones in there for $25 bucks... but if you have rough gems or minerals of your own that you would like an inexpensive way to refine, go for it, and you will end up with decent results that can be worked into pretty jewels. You DO have to be patient- this tumbler is sumulating decades of erosion in nature... a month is not too long to wait! But, that's why they recommend this for children from 10 to 14 years old... at this age, they have the capacity for waiting that a 5- or 6-year old would not. My 13-year old gets it! But seriously... try it, give it a honest shot, and you will enjoy it. And if you enjoy it enough to stick with it, buy a more professional tumbler and you'll love it even more!
