Kathryn of Auckland says:-
"Micro-Mesh MXD sandpaper is invaluable for finishing cast glass to a high standard.  Because it's not too abrasive, I've found it can eliminate fine scratches with relative ease.  This helps to reduce the time, effort and frustration that one usually associates with finishing!"
