Magnetite Crystal Specimens
Interesting little Magnetite crystal specimens, largely showing good octahedral formation. They are measured from their top to bottom - point to point, I guess!
The description for this product previously turns out to not be particularly accurate anymore... I once thought these weren't going to be very popular but actually they sell very well - so now I am carrying Magnetite crystals from around the world.
These pieces are probably not going to find a home in most collections, to be honest. They're not the most attractive specimens - a rusty brown colour and rarely perfectly formed. We do, however, sell an 'A Grade', which will be almost perfect and without any major missing pieces etc.
They are the most magnetic naturally occurring mineral on Earth, and can be magnetised to become a magnet. If your collection lies around the concepts of force or energy, that's a pretty cool addition right there.
Our grading system isn't perfect and does need some work - I will be uploading a grading image soon hopefully. Essentially, grade C pieces are fragmentary, pieces where the octahedral formation can be recognised, but broken. The B grade are mostly complete but missing areas. The A grade are almost entirely complete.
Our current stock includes crystals from:
- Australia: Various locations
- Brazil: Minas Gerais, Brazil
- Pakistan: Shigar valley in Pakistan, near to Skardu (including a one off small pack with seventeen 3-8MM crystals).
- USA: Iron Country, Utah, USA. Clusters of crystals, rather than singular crystals. These may come with a free display case - unfortunately the case is of poor quality and often scratched.
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.
