offer the best shipping terms of any lapidary website or company! At least
so far as we have surfed, shopped, and compared but we're pretty sure
we're pretty good at shipping you pretty rocks at a rock bottom price!
We ship USPS at the fixed rate shipping charge is $5.85.
Most items are shipped within 2-3 business days, unless other wise noted on product page. Orders are currently being processed Tuesdays and Fridays for shipment on Wednesday and Saturday.
Sorry, we do not offer overnight shipping! We are a very small business and do not have the man power to offer this service. If you are in a hurry, you are welcome to email us to see if we might be able to get your order out the door a little more quickly then usual. We will do our best to help you.
We can and do run out of things and because we don't have a sophisticated inventory system linked to our website,
we'll be sure to let you know if we are going to be delayed in shipping your item and you have the option of cancelling or waiting patiently.
Our standard shipping for APO is the same fixed
rate shipping charge is $5.85 USPS Priority. However, for credit card orders, we do need a billing address in the states. Our card processor will not accept an APO address as the
billing address. An APO address is fine for the shipping address. Anything goes for paypal orders!
/ International Orders
International orders are welcome. All overseas and international customers pay $25 flat rate shipping for
up to 2 lbs (about 900 g.) For orders over
2lbs where there may be an additional charge based on estimated weight of the package, we will contact you if this is the case. We offer the flat rate as a convenience to those placing orders for small items or rough.
International orders are shipped USPS Express or Priority
Mail. We will not ship standard mail or freight because they do not have tracking. We have had too many people say they want the cheaper shipping, and then whine and complain because it is slow to arrive. We can't tell them where their package is, because the cheaper options do not have tracking.
You may be subject to import duties and taxes, which are levied once the
package reaches your country. Additional charges for customs clearance
must be paid by you. If you access this site from a location outside of
the United States, you are responsible for compliance with all local laws.
Unclaimed Orders, Non-Deliverable Orders
order is, refused, returned or unclaimed by the customer due to customer
refusal, customer negligence/absence, or customer providing incorrect
shipping information, and the order is returned to us by USPS
the order will be refunded less shipping charges and reshipping charges
