Photography - I photograph outside in full sun for true color rendition. Occasionally clouds come over that make the color less than it really is. On rare occasions I supplement with a flash to highlight details. Lighting mineralscorrectly will bring out their best color. Halogen works the best. The hand or finger in the photo is to give you a comparision of size. We realize it is hard to tell the size of anmineral by the picture alone.
Computer monitors - We try very hard for accurate color rendition. However images look different in color depending on the computer moniter. I have even moved the laptop from living room (editing pictures) to office to upload and the glare from the windows changes the colors. If you are unhappy with the item, you may of course return it within 7 days for a courteous full refund.
Measurements - All are measured from the tip to across. This is the industry standard. Then we measured across in a X formation.
100% positive response!!!!

It takes lots of paperwork to do a refund.
Shipping to Russia Federation and former Soviet Union states - Unfortunately the US Post office now makes us take all packages to former USSR TO the post office. (How they can see thru the box to see if it is dangerous I don't know?) Why Russia.... I do not know? However I can no longer pay my daughter $20 to go the post office, stand in a long line, to ship your $15 item. We just don't have the time. IF you want to buy $200usd or more we will do it. Just email us thru with a list. This is why a lot of sellers are no longer shipping to the former USSR. We will allow purchases when the US post office changes their policy.
Notes in Paypal and Request Total - Unfortunately , in their usual brilliance, NOT, has a note section in paypal and request total. Do NOT use it send emails, sellers do NOT get them. does NOT send them thru the email system. Instead we have to open each and every Request total and Paypal to check for your notes. Some day we have 30 shipouts and we NEVER see the notes. Just email us thru , please.
Combine Shipping - IF you are happy with the 'combined shipping total' on the invoice checkout, just pay it. I will assume you are happy with the total.
IF you want an EXACT TOTAL, click 'Request Total' on the invoice checkout.
BEFORE PAYING PLEASE.
The checkout system does NOT work very well, sorry. We have tried many options to automate it, butit is always off one way or the other. Again - IF you want an exact total, click 'Request Total' on the checkout page and you will have an exact invoice within 24 hours.
It takes a lot of e-paperwork to change the total and do a refund, AFTER you pay. And to getthe outrageous fees back(even on shipping), then we will expect you to agree to a 'refund request'.
Offers - If you wish to make an offer, just email us here. 's offer system is okay, but it does make it hard to discuss offers. The automated system does NOT do shipping changes at all. It is better to email me here thru . (Ridiculous offers, we don't reply to) Keep in mind makes a large commission on each transaction and we take that into account in pricing.
Buy It Now - on sale listings, as of May 1 2013, Buy It Now -MUST be 30% above the sale price. We think this is ridiculous. This is 's policy NOT mine. Again you can submit us an offer here thru 's email system, we will work with you.
Stands - We are out of stands right now for fossils and minerals. You can get them at Craft Stores like Michaels or Hobby Lobby....Former
USSR and satellites - Sorry the US post office makes us go there to
mail packages to former Soviet Union. We can not spend $20 in time
shipping a $20 item. IF you wish to purchase over $100usd then email me thru and I will work it out.Jadenite - Sorry no international shipping, it breaks to easily.
