      Stonesfan1 I did find a little bit on the web, Emery is a polishing compound commonly used in 'sandblasting' type operations or 'glued' to linnen to create "Emery Cloth" this company got an award and I managed t find a reference to it here :http://books.google.com/books?id=WP0mAQAAIAAJ&pg=PA194&lpg=PA194&dq=ashland+mills+turkish+emery&source=bl&ots=RYeo09ILUy&sig=_nyFZ9svOXgpO3XZxyqzivbAWLA&hl=en&ei=TzV3TqqfEMuTtwe6uLTJDA&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=2&sqi=2&ved=0CB8Q6AEwAQ#v=onepage&q=ashland%20mills%20turkish%20emery&f=false
