rock tumbler grit
what type of grit do you use in a dry Vibratory Rock Tumbler for rocks, also what do you use to polish silver?

The grit will depend on the hardness of the rocks you're tumbling- you'd want to start with a tougher grit for harder rocks, a gentler grit for the softer ones.

When I'm polishing the sterling silver chainmaille piece I just finished, I throw it in my rotary tumbler overnight with stainless steel shot, (the same place you get your grit from should have this; it's not shotgun pellets!), water, and a squirt of Dawn dish detergent. It helps to harden the wire as well.

I wouldn't recommend this method for plated pieces, delicate pieces, or pieces incorporating stones with a Mohs hardness of less than 6.5-7 (at least quartz, etc.) I use a silver polishing cloth on the delicate stuff.
