PLEASE NOTE - Mineral stands, tack and any other forms of display show in the pictures are NOT included in the auction. You will receive only the specimen.
BECAUSE SIZE MATTERS - Please realize that my photo studio can often make items look larger than they actually are. I have provided accurate measurements of size and weight. Please familiarize yourself with these specs for any item you choose to bid on or buy. Keep in mind that a penny is roughly 19mm across and an inch equals roughly 25mm.
Item: Campo del Cielo Meteorite
Weight: 83.80 carats, 16.77 grams
Campo del Cielo Meteorite fell 4000-5000 years ago in Argentina, has a
total found weight of 50,000 kilos and was "discovered" in 1576,
although it was already known at the time to Natives. Campo del Cielo
was translated from the tales of the Natives into Spanish and translates
to "Field of Heaven." This piece is a fragment of the larger meteorite
which shattered and is strewn about a crater field measuring
approximately 18.5 x 3 miles. A digital COA is present in the item
My Ebay Philosophy: I do my absolute best to be honest, kind and to communicate well with others. I ask the same of my customers. If there happens to be an issue with the order, whatever it may be, I ask that you first-and-foremost communicate with me on the matter before taking any official action. I will do my best to make sure you are satisfied with your order and to fix the problem if you are not. Just shoot me an email and we'll work it out!
Shipping: I ship USPS, either Priority or First Class Mail, three or four days a week (typically Monday, Wednesday, Friday). I do my best to charge you right around what it will cost me to ship. This is pretty simple with a single item and get's slightly more complicated with multiple items. (If you order multiple items at once, you may want to wait for an invoice so I can give you the most accurate shipping cost.) I have set the default to First Class because it is the most affordable and I give you the option of Priority. I often bump your shipping to Priority for the price of First Class if you buy multiple items. You can fit a bunch of minerals into a Priority Mail Small Flat Rate Box and the service and price are generally very good. Feel free to ask me any questions you have. Combined Shipping: I typically charge 50 cents for each additional item, although there are occasional situations where this isn't the case (usually with larger items). If you'd like to know what I'll charge you, please ask.
Returns: I accept returns for a full refund within 14 days. The buyer pays return shipping costs.
International Buyers – Please Note:
Import duties, taxes, and charges are not included in the item price or shipping cost. These charges are the buyer's responsibility.
Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to bidding or buying.
^^^THIS MEANS THAT, IF YOU MAKE AN INTERNATIONAL PURCHASE, YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL FEES ASSOCIATED WITH IMPORTING THE ITEM INTO YOUR COUNTRY! YOU MAY NOT RECEIVE YOUR ITEM IF YOU REFUSE TO PAY NECESSARY FEES. ALSO, I WILL LABEL THE PACKAGES WITH THE ACTUAL VALUE OF THE ITEM(S); PLEASE DON'T ASK ME OT LIE ON CUSTOMS FORMS.
INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING UPDATE - I am now charging 5.00 for each additional item for international combined shipping (thereby nullifying my prior statement of 2.00 - it is much easier to add to all my item descriptions than it is to delete from them). This price is a somewhat negotiable default. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND that you agree to purchase all your items and then request a total before paying. This will save you money on shipping and save me time processing your order.
Best Offer Shipping Disclaimer - Please note that all best offers submitted include all stated shipping. Per eBay policy and per my personal policy, you do not have the option to submit a best offer with different shipping than stated in the listing. Stated simply, if you send me an offer, you agree to pay the stated shipping in the listing, no exceptions.
