- Our Policies
I'm sorry-we do not do custom cutting. Nor do we offer cutting services for your materials. However we do have a huge inventory, so if you do not find what you want, feel free to email or call us with your request.
We are online only-We do not have a store front!
Shipping terms: We prefer to ship USPS Priority, but will ship anyway you want if you contact us first. All cabochons and some very small objects are shipped via First Class Mail in a bubble enevelope for FREE. Rough rock lots are shipped via Priority Flat Rate FREE. ALL ORDERS TOTALING OVER $50.00 are shipped FREE.
I am always happy to combine shipping or use Flat Rate Boxes. Insurance is optional but recommend for high dollar items.
We usually ship within 3 business days, but it is just me and I do occassionally do shows and buying trips. If your shipment will be delayed more than one week, I will notify you via email.
International Buyers – Please Note: Import duties, taxes and charges are not included in the item price or shipping charges. These charges are the buyer’s responsibility. Please check with your country’s customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to bidding/buying.
We offer First Class International because it is the least expensive, but please understand that First Class can take a month to receive and usually has no tracking (sometimes longer for the UK and if it gets held up in your customs!). Priority is usually quicker and will track to some countries.
If you need expediated shipping-please contact us via telephone for price and availability.
DO TO INCREASED FRAUD in International orders-International shipments will ONLY go to the billing address of the credit card and will be sent out ONLY after verification with the cardholder! Also we are not currently shipping to Indonesia, but if you are a legitimate buyer please fell free to contact us. If we can verify you, we may be able to make arrangements to sell to you.
Payment terms: We take Paypal or credit card-Visa/Mastercard, American Express, or Discover.
Sales Tax: By law we are required to collect sales tax for items shipped to addresses in Arizona.
Return Policy: We will accept returns for a refund of the full purchase price, if the item is returned to us in good condition within 30 days of purchase. We do not refund shipping charges unless we made an error with your order.
Please notify us via phone or email if you are returning an item, so we can watch for it.
We ask for your phone number in case we need to contact you in case of a problem, and your email to send you an order confirmation and updates on the fullfillment of your order,.
If you join our newsletter we may occassionally send you relevant rock and mineral information, special promations or show updates. These newsletters are rare and usually simple and straightforward-no ads, no spam.
Wholesale: We DO NOT wholesale on this website. We do have a wholesale business named Barlow's and some of the items here are available at wholesale prices. Contact us with questions.
Please note: Items are One of A Kind, due to the natural stone material there may be some natural cracks or inclusions. Close up pictures may actually enhance them. They will be listed in description too. You will always receive the item pictured, unless otherwise stated! Any questions??-please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
