Lodestone Specimens

Lodestone Specimens - a naturally occurring magnetic type of the mineral Magnetite. Honestly, I'd think the names would be the other way round, but what do I know.

These pieces are available in a few different sizes. They do not show any crystalline form and should be considered fragments or rounded fragments.

While these are magnetised, they don't compare to neodymium magnets - they do, however, attract Iron filings quite readily. In some cases, they have very limited magnetism - in addition to this, the magnetised area of the specimen may be quite small, and is rarely the full surface of the specimen.

They're an interesting little specimen but I don't think they'll be the pride of anyone's collection - prove me wrong?

I now sell these with a grading system - they are graded on their reaction to small iron filings. A grade pieces have either one area of strong magneticity, or are overall reasonably magnetic. B grade pieces are typically magnetic in only one area.

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.
