 I'd love to get more suggestions and commentary. However, you might find
 some useful info or new sources in these files in my SCA Rialto Files: >>

Problem is, I have NO information on lapidary. I learned it the old fashioned
way, from an old guy who'd been doing it for years. I have some books on
jewelry making, but not on lapidary itself. I would >guess< that the period
method used various grits, such as sand and ashes, etc., and water to polish
the stones. 

I will do what I can for documentation at Laurel's prize tourney. Maybe
someone there can point me to a reference or two.
