Shipping - Returns - Insurance



Shipping is effected on 2 days of the week: Wednesdays and Saturdays. Payments received for goods till late Tuesday or late Friday are shipped out on the next day. Express Mail shipments are made on the very next working day.


1. Registered Air Mail: This delivers in 2-4 weeks anywhere in the world. If, in a rare instance it is delayed beyond this time frame, and the package cannot be tracked, after a grace period of 1 week, a refund is issued. If the package can be tracked but delayed in recipient's country (which happens in a rare case for additional checks and security), an additional grace period may be required which will mutually be agreed with the recipient. All packages have a tracking number, but can be tracked only on the recipient country's postal website.

Tracking on any website is prone to glitches and errors. Some websites such as USPS post misleading messages which confuse buyers (We have received notice that the originating post is preparing to dispatch this mail piece.) This message is dated at least 3-4 days after dispatch and can be seen for weeks at times. Other websites, such as Israel post, Canada Post, Norway post, etc (and including USPS) may sometimes not log the article on their website right until it is delivered. These, and other erratic behaviors result in confusion to the buyer. We request buyers to ask for tracking number only after the stipulated 4 weeks have passed since shipment.
Express Mail parcels usually are treated better and tracking for them is not such a problem, resulting in less confusion.

2. Express Mail Service: This delivers within 10-12 working days anywhere in the world.
This has a tracking number and can be tracked right from the day of shipment.
Charges start at $18.00 to USA for the first 250 grams.

Both services are 100% reliable. (Not one lost parcel in the last few years!!)


- Your goods are insured against loss or damage and a full refund is issued in any eventuality. We do not rely on our carriers or any insurance agency to delay or reject a claim: we back our goods 100% ourselves and settle all claims within 5-7 weeks of dispatch.

- You can return the goods within 1 week of receipt for a full refund.

About Us:

From being collectors of stones for many years, we listed some inventory on
eBay in 2001 and never looked back.
Later, we decided to set our own pace and started operating though our website alone.
We hope to give the same, if not better service which we did while on other websites.
