You get the exact one shown here: #A16 Please see all 9 photos (be sure to scroll to see the last 3) Here we have a HYDROUS HEMATITE CONCRETION from the NORTH SHORE of LAKE SUPERIOR. This is an unusual thing with wild raised (natural) designs that are different front and back. This has a good shape and no broken or damaged areas - it's whole and complete.This looks decidedly "alien".This is dusty from 50 years of storage. This will cost $15 to box and ship and a good portion of the asking price is simply for shipping. This is basically $30 for this large mineral specimen and $15 for shipping. This will fit inside a medium flat rate box with plenty of room for padding. It would be possible to add other medium or small items to said box but not a whole lot of items or anything heavy. Do consider that the shipping costs are included in the asking price under the forced disingenuous guise of "free shipping". Weight: 1.2 Kilograms or 2 pounds 10 ounces. Approx. size: 7" x 4 1/2" x 1 3/8" thickness at widest point or in metric 17.8 x 11.4 x 3.5 cm. The asking price is subject to increase at any time.This is from the estate collection of Donna Bailey who resided in Overland Park, Kansas and who actively collected minerals from 1962 thru approx. 1980. She numbered and cataloged every specimen. . All specimens were added to her collection prior to 1981. The collection consisted of over 800 cataloged specimens. I am listing many specimens from the collection which is truly wide and varied. Be sure to check out my other listings and keep in mind that I add new things every day. This ships boxed and with a nice DIXIE EUHEDRALS branded specimen label. Best offer is enabled and you can make a reasonable offer if you wish*. That is, if you are not worried about some monied person coming along and swooping it up while you are wasting time haggling and trying to save a buck or two. I don't have time for games, so be real.*While this does have the best offer featured enabled this does not necessarily mean that I will take less for it, especially when it is first initially offered for sale (listed January 20, 2019). The asking price is subject to increase at any time. My philosophy is to charge fair and reasonable prices and that is what I do. The prices I list minerals at are fair to begin with. If you decide that it is in your best interest to submit an offer, please take care to make sure the offer is a reasonable one as I only deal with reasonable people when presented with a choice. It is decidedly not in your best interests to make an unreasonable offer. Any offer tendered should consider that shipping is factored into the listed price on listings that have "free" shipping. The farther away that you are from Atlanta, Georgia, the more expensive postage is. On average it will cost about $16 for shipping with insurance, signature confirmation, etc. So once you arrive at a reasonable offer you can add $16 for shipping, a little less if you live in Georgia or adjacent states or states in USPS zone one.This is an incredibly beautiful specimen and I am quite confident that whomever gets it will be very pleased. It can be returned for any reason if you are not delighted with it. Domestic USA Shipping: If you are getting more than one item then Please use the shopping cart and send only one payment to save money on shipping. Provided that you only send one payment we do combine shipping and only charge actual postage and for packaging materials. If you send more than one payment you will get multiple packages at your expense. Ebay does not support combining separate payments into one shipment and does not provide the functionality to do so. The U.S. Postal Service (USPS) will implement new postage rates for several mailing and shipping products on Sunday, January 21, 2018. Going forward it costs $3.56 to send a 4 ounce package to anywhere in the USA. Unfortunately, a one ounce package with one small item still costs the minimum, but I can add extra similar sized items at essentially no extra charge (I have extra items set for one penny extra for the calculator to work). This will either be placed in a small cotton-flocked box & placed in a bubble lined mailer so that it will reach you safely or, when appropriate due to the size of the specimen or for the more expensive items, it will be wrapped with a foam sheet and boxed for an additional $1. Packages weighing 16 ounces or more will be priced individually per weight and affected by the recipients distance from Atlanta, Georgia. We do not make money on shipping - not even a penny per shipment. I provide FIVE STAR service in regards to shipping costs, although it seems as though some buyers may not realize it. To keep shipping costs down I buy materials in bulk to get the per unit price down on mailers, boxes, labels, etc. It's not uncommon for me to order $70 worth of small white boxes that the small items go inside in the bubble lined mailer. That little white box that protects the pick/crystal/gemstone is something most sellers don’t even provide as most just put the pick in a zip baggie stapled to the packing slip. The yellow mailers set me back $30 per order and we all know how expensive printer ink is. Then there's adhesive address/postage labels, tape, etc. By charging the exact actual postage for the weight of the products that are purchased it allows me to keep the individual costs low on the guitar picks and other items that I sell. If you get several items then the cost of shipping becomes very low per item and that directly benefits you! International shipping: There are a lot of countries on this planet and they all have different rates so I can't formulate a combined shipping rule. The actual postage costs are charged with $2 added for packaging. If you buy multiple items, pay the rate that is estimated by the calculator and I will refund any amount paid over the actual postage (less $2 for packaging materials). The Domestic USA shipping rates and policies have NOTHING to do with the international rates and policies so do not conflate them! It doesn't take a rocket scientist to know that I can't ship ROCKS internationally at the sames rates as I do domestically. I shouldn't have to point that out, but uh, .......................International Buyers assumes all risks if the package is lost in the mail. We do not ship to Italy, Israel, Russia, or Ukraine due to the number of packages that get 'lost' in the mail. International orders: Tariffs & Import tax policy: The buyer is responsible for all taxes, tariffs, customs and import fees, if any.
