I'm looking for some resources/companies that sell burnishing rocks. I am planning on using a tadelakt finish on my rocket mass heater bench but I need burnishing rock. It needs to be a hardness of 7 and I'm having a hard time finding them. any ideas?

This link here:

http://rocktreasureswholesale.com/Tumbled-Stones/Tadelakt-Polishing-Stone-1-Piece::65425.html?MODsid=p2knfh8u60aqkh8k2jb38e6hl3

has them listed for sale, but the price seems a bit steep - it says the stone they use is "polychrome Jasper" - maybe use this term in your search to find a raw source?
