Shipping -- All stone orders are shipped Priority. You will be charged $4.60 shipping for your stone order, and all products included in that order are then shipped Priority, at no extra charge beyond the $4.60. Therefore, do not add the $3.35 book-order fee for Priority if you are also ordering printed materials, as they will be shipped with your stones, included in the stone-order shipping fee.
Zambian Amethyst -- Large gemstones average over one inch; small stones average about ½ inch. These stones are gorgeous, deep dark purple yet very transparent. I bought them because they were irresistible!
Agua Nueva Agate -- My original intent was to purchase rose quartz, but the polished quartz was medium grade with rather pale coloration. Then I saw these agates from Mexico. The pink and rose shades in the banding were so rich in color that they became my preference. Large stones average about 1½ inches; small stones are about 1 inch.
Petrified Wood -- These stones are "native"--they are found in some of the Rocky Mountain states. Appearance shows much variation between stones. Because the baskets are made from pine needles, I thought petrified wood would coordinate very well--all tree products. Large stones are around 1½ inch; small stones are around ½ inch.
Mooka Jasper or Mookaite -- An Australian jasper, the coloration reminds me of contemporary oil paintings, or patterns found on fabrics. Large stones are about 1½ inch and bulky. Medium stones are 1 to 1½ inch and not so bulky. Small stones are under 1 inch.
Lake Superior Agates -- My original offering, and I've now added jumbo size, which are at least 1½ inches, with a lot of bulk. Rust is a dominant color in these agates, due to the abundance of iron in the Lake Superior region. Other colors present are white, gray, black, bluish gray. Large stones average 1 inch, small stones average ½ inch. Being a native of a Great Lakes state, I am very partial to these agates and have even hunted for them along Gitchie-gumee's shores. Great fun!
