Gemstone, Mineral, and Fossil Advent Calendar Refills
These refills are ideal for anyone who already has a refillable advent calendar, and anyone who doesn't like the reusable cardboard packaging we use.
As the cardboard box is actually quite large, the refills are also a more economical way of posting these internationally.
We offer three variants:
- A twelve day calendar, 12 daily items and a single larger Christmas present. These will come in red velveteen bags with date labels, so you can't see the items...
- Our standard 25 day calendar, 24 daily items and a single larger Christmas present. These will come in red velveteen bags with date labels, so you can't see the items...

So what do you get?
Potentially pretty much anything we sell – although we do carefully pick pieces that aren’t toxic, sharp, or hazardous. You’re guaranteed to get a few tumblestones, fossils, some nice mineral specimens, a polished piece or two and possibly some jewellery – don’t worry, one size fits all.
Our luxury calendar contains nicer specimens, and typically more of them – and sometimes, rarer items such as meteorites.
When ordering this item, please check the date carefully - we recommend an express delivery service if there isn't long left until December!
There is a Christmas rush every year, and we don't want you to miss out.
Due to the nature of gemstones, mineral samples, tumblestones, etc - small children should be supervised if given this advent calendar and hands should be washed after handling mineral specimens. None of the stones included are toxic or poisonous unless ingested, but basic precautions never hurt.
Frequently asked questions and delivery information
How do we grade stones?
There is no overall universal grading system for the majority of our products. As such, the grades we use are internal only. They simply refer to higher and lower qualities, but they may be entirely different grades to other websites. C grade pieces are of lower quality than B grade, which is lower than A grade.
How does our ordering and delivery process work?
You place an order via the website. When it’s been picked and packed, your order will be marked as completed and dropped off at our local post office. We have an account with the post office called a “Drop and Go” account, which allows the post office staff to process our parcels when they have free time, rather than me queuing up and delaying everyone else.
I get tracking information etc online when this has been completed. I typically do not send tracking information to customers unless they request it – but if you’ve requested tracked postage, it has been sent tracked! If you have any worries or concerns about your parcel being delayed please feel free to get in touch and I’ll send the tracking info over! We also get delivery confirmations for parcels over 25MM thick by default.
How do international orders work?
After Brexit, with the UK leaving the European Union, certain things have changed with regards to international orders. European Union customers will now likely be liable to pay the same amount of import VAT as any other international customers. You will be responsible for any customs and import fees.
I’d like to return my order for a refund.
No problem at all – just get in touch and we’ll arrange it. You can read our full returns policy here.
What payment methods do you accept?
I can accept Paypal, Stripe, cheque, and direct bank transfers. Paypal and Stripe will both allow you to pay with credit and debit cards.
