Ordering & Shipping Info

We ship internationally to most countries from Ontario, Canada via Canada Post. Orders are usually processed and dropped off at the post office within 1-3 days of placing the order depending on my fulltime work schedule. Due to the nature of the minerals we sell, most parcels must ship with a method that includes tracking. It also just makes things easier for both of us. I try and use recycled packaging as much as possible to ship items out in, so sometimes the parcel itself may not look the best, but the specimens inside are well protected.

Please Note: Orders may be cancelled and refunded without notice if the transaction appears to be fraudulent.

Orders will ship to the address provided in the order details, so please make sure it is correct before ordering. Any request to change the address after the order is made will result in the order being cancelled, and a new order having to be made using the requested shipping details.

Ordering within Canada: 

$15.00 CAD flat rate for Expedited Parcel anywhere in Canada.

Orders above $150.00 CAD ship free via Expedited Parcel.

XpressPost available at calculated rates, or e-mail me for other shipping methods. Purolator & UPS also available for orders that don't contain any radioactive mineral specimens. Any orders placed requesting courier delivery with radioactive mineral specimens will be sent via Canada Post with the difference being refunded.

Local pickups are not available at this time, though I am happy to meet up at any mineral shows I may be attending.

Ordering within the USA:

$14.00 USD flat rate for Tracked Packet USA for orders up to $200.00 USD.

Free shipping to USA for orders above $200.00 USD

Other shipping methods available at calculated cost, or message me and we can figure something out.

All shipments conform to USPS Publication 52.

International Orders (Outside of Canada & USA):

Shipping at calculated rates. Please message me to work out shipping rates as I could calculate things more exactly. Most parcels have to go out with tracking which can get expensive depending on where you are located. You can also just place an order as normal and I will refund any shipping overages when I process your order.

We are not responsible for customs fees or delays. Please make sure you are aware of all the rules for your country for importing these collectible materials.

While we endeavor to package our specimens the best we can to protect them during shipping, damage may still occur. Please let us know right away if your specimens arrive damaged, preferably with photographs so we can work something out for you.

January 2024 Update: Due to Italian Customs being a major headache and holding parcels for weeks or even months on end, I will no longer be shipping any orders to Italy. It is just too much hassle for both myself and the buyer. My apologies about this.
