Pebble mosaics

I’m tumbling some tesserae as part of an order and it just occurred to me that given the difficulty in getting pebbles for reproducing ancient Greek mosaics I could just leave the antique cut in the tumbler for longer until they round off more.
It would make sense as you could then match the colours and shapes as the only pebbles available here are much too big.
