tourmaline process

I would like to know what do I do with raw tourmaline? Tumble it? I went tourmaline digging in San Diego and got some pretty nice pieces one about the size of a large marble dark pink and want to know now what?

Start with the local rock and mineral shop. They can give you information about your piece. They may be able to give you an idea of its worth and what to do with it and what not to do with it.

You don't necessarily need to do anything with it. Clean it and keep it in your collection. Perhaps trim it if its on a matrix and could benefit from a trim. Other then that, why not leave it as is?
