Family company of mineralogists and gemologists specializing in gems, minerals and jewelry from all around the world.
This website as well as our gallery is the best catalog we have. Because our inventory is so varied and so many of the items we carry are one-of-a-kind it is just impossible to put it in print. If you can visit that is the best way to see what we have. We are working very hard to give you a sampling of what we have in the store. Some areas will have a lot of variety while other areas have a few. But check back often you will see us grow.
NO! We started the business in 1996 and started off dealing with only minerals from the former Soviet Union. Now years later, we specialize in minerals and jewelry from every corner of our beautiful planet, while of course maintaining our specialty in Charoites, Seraphinites, Staurolites and other minerals from Russia.
Absolutely! If there is anything you are looking for, let us know. We have over 500 varieties of minerals in raw and in jewelry/carvings. There is a high chance we have it, and haven't been able to post it on our website yet, or if we do not have it, we will do our best to find it for you within a reasonable time frame.
We understand that our descriptions are limited. We are highly skilled professionals, and know our products very well. Let us know if you have any specific questions regarding any of our products, and we will personally respond to any inquiries.
If you would like to make an offer for a specific item or for a number of products, contact us with your offer details. We consider all reasonable offers, and respond to all of them accordingly!
Yes you can! Let us know in advance that you will be picking it up, and we will bring it to our store in Centerpoint Mall within a day or two. You will not have to pay shipping costs.
We have been dealing around stones our whole lives. We get our stones and jewelry from reliable sources who we know very well, and being gemologists and mineralogist/geologist in the business helps us separate the real stuff from the rest!
Most orders are shipped out as regular air parcels with Canada Post. We can also ship express mail and insure the packages, but due to weights and distances shipping rates can vary. Your best option is to contact us to find out specific options for your order. See our "Shipping and Return" section for more details.
When I update the site with more interesting and fascinating products or when we run a special you will get an email. Please join our mailing list!
Although no 2 items are ever the same, let us know what it is you missed out on, and if we have something similar we can email you the pictures as well as descriptions - you never know, maybe it will be even nicer.
We know that not everyone likes what they see and it is difficult to express the stones at 100% via photos. Items can be returned in the same packaging with their labels within 14 days of receiving your order. We would appreciate a phone call or an email letting us know that you are returning the item. You will receive a full refund less shipping/handling charges.
Yes, the credit card information is collected through a secure, encrypted (SSL) connection.
We do understand that some customers are not comfortable with sending in credit card information via internet. So you can make your order by calling us with your credit card information, which we will be able to process manually. Contact us for more information.
Our website is always open, and we always try to respond to any questions the same day they are asked. Our store is open during regular mall hours.
Gift wrapping is available on orders over $25.00. Please also let us know who and what the package is for, so that we may wrap it accordingly.
