For Domestic Orders:
We ship all orders using the United States Postal Service. For orders under $4000, we use Priority Mail. A signature will be required for all orders over $150. For orders over $4000, we use Registered Mail, fully insured. For shipping rates please see the chart below.
For Non-Domestic Orders:
If the value of the package is less than $300, we will ship USPS First Class mail. The rate will depend on the weight of the package. This is the cheapest method to ship outside the United States. Please note that there is no tracking number; the transit time is said to be anywhere from 1 - 4 weeks, maybe a little longer. This method can only be utilized for packages that weigh less than 4 pounds. For shipping rates please see the chart below.
If the value of the package is over $300, we will ship USPS Priority Mail. With this method there is a tracking number that is operable up until the time that the package leaves U.S. air space. Once the package reaches the destination country's customs services, we cannot control the timing of the delivery. Delivery time for this method is said to be 7 - 10 days generally, if there are no customs delays. For shipping rates please see the chart below.
If the value of the package is over $4000, we will ship using FedEx. Packages are usually delivered within 2 - 3 days, and are tracked from our door to yours.
For all non-domestic orders we will declare a very low value for customs. We will usually declare a total value under $35, unless the customer requests differently. If the package is shipped via FedEx, we will declare a value around $200, unless the customer requests differently.
Delivery at Shows
It is possible that your order may be delivered at one of the various mineral shows that we attend. This is, of course, limited to the amount of room that we have available when traveling to the show. If this is the chosen method of delivery, we do require payment in full for the specimen or specimens at the time of the order.
