Garnet Tumblestones

Lovely Garnet tumblestones, available in two different quality grades.

These stones are a very dark red, almost black, and they are not especially transparent. They make an interesting contrast stone when paired with brighter stones, or white stones - ideal for use as fish tank gravel, or a decoration in a small bowl or vase.

Garnets are, of course, considered a precious stone - these are lower grades, therefore have lower prices.

The pictures you see here are representative of the products and are usually not the exact item you will receive. Where various grades are available we do try to photograph each grade - but some photographs are still on their way!

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.

    I requested two tumblestones as close to 3 cm as possible, and the customer service of Albion did not disappoint me. I received two stones that are very similar and will suit my purposes very well, as I use them in pairs for healing and I need them to not be below a minimum size to be effective. The garnets are exactly as advertised, very very dark, and if held in the sunlight deep red lights will appear. Live long and prosper, Albion Fire and Ice!

What are tumblestones?

Tumblestones are stones that have been put in spinning barrels with an abrasive compound for weeks or months. This slowly rounds off the rough rock and corners – the stones are then cleaned, and placed with a less abrasive grit. This happens several times until the stones are placed into a barrel with a polishing compound for their final polish.
