Vanadinite specimens consist of lovely red hexagonal crystals on a stone matrix and make an interesting mineral collectors object.
These stones are often, but not always on a Baryte matrix, and most come from Morocco.
We have pieces from 25-100MM approximately available for sale now - and we may be able to get larger pieces upon request.
Due to the fragile nature of these pieces, they will always be sent as a parcel no matter their size. Because the hexagonal crystals sit on top of the matrix, a lot of padding is required. Obviously, we don't want the pieces broken during shipping.
Vanadinite is an ore of Vanadium and a minor ore of Lead, and should be considered toxic. A specimen on the shelf isn't going to cause any harm, but it should be kept out of reach of children and pets who may ingest it, and it should not be ground or cut except by an experienced lapidary due to the dust.
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.
