Whilst we endeavour to make the specimen photographs as realistic as possible, please be aware that colours are sometimes difficult to accurately reproduce and possibly can change over time.  The colour of some species appears different in artificial light compared to daylight. Please also note that the photographs are not to scale.


Customs/Duty Fees
It is the customer's responsibility to pay all associated custom charges, duty fees and sales taxes, for items purchased and posted/shipped outside of the UK.


Health considerations

Minerals should be handled carefully as they may be harmful. Always wash your hands after handling minerals and never inhale or ingest mineral dust.



We appreciate that sometimes it is not easy assessing a specimen from a photograph however accurate the photograph may be. Therefore if within 10 days from receipt you decide the specimen(s) are not for you, and you wish to return them, we will refund your money less postage and insurance where appropriate, so long as the specimen(s) are returned and in the condition they were sent, i.e. undamaged, not been trimmed etc.


Damaged items

If the specimen has been damaged in transit, please contact us immediately and we will discuss either a full refund or a discount if the damage is slight. Some evidence of the damage would be appreciated preferably a digital photograph.
