Some specimens may have odors from long-term storage or natural sources. Old mounting glue, residue, tags or mouthing material may be present. Some specimens may not sit upright as seen in pictures and may require a stand or other propping device. Saw marks may be present on any rough, cabochons, slabs or specimens. Some cabochons may appear smooth in pictures but may have small vugs, natural fractures, edge chipping or other imperfections.There is no way to test slabs without attempting to break them with applied pressure. We strongly suggest stabilizing or backing any slabs that could potentially break during any lapidary work. Specimen and Lapidary Hazards: Many rocks and minerals (specimens) contain potentially hazardous or allergenic compounds, some known or unknown.
Some specimens (as noted) may be coated with polyurethane to provide a wet look. Specimens should never be applied to skin or ingested. Lapidary work should always be preformed with safety equipment including inhalation and skin contact considerations.
Specimens should not be used in aquariums or terrariums without establishing safety first. Do not allow children to handle specimens.
Images: All specimens are photographed with bright, natural sunlight or artificial daylight at 5000K to 5500K to show accurate colors and details. Specimens viewed in poor / indoor lighting or non-daylight illumination sources may not appear as in the photographs. Some specimens (as noted in the description) may be seen wet or damp to show lapidary potential.In such instances, received item(s) may appear duller until professionally polished. Items used for backgrounds, props and measurements such as rulers, coins, etc. Are not included unless otherwise noted in the description. Some items may break or chip during transit due to unknown micro-cracks. It has been our experience that keys are not seriously damaged when packed as a tight group. Some flaking or shedding is normal and expected.
