7.2cm PRAZYM QUARTZ with ACTINOLITE and ANDRADITE from Russia 8155
7.2 x 6.2 x 5.8 cm
Prasem or Prazym simply means "green", but the word has come to characterize specific types of Quartz with Hedenbergite inclusions from Seriphos Greece, as well as new finds from Inner Mongolia. Another Prazym comes from Eastern Russia, and has an Actinolite inclusion, growing often on top of Andradite Garnet. These fascinating specimens have aesthetic, mineralogical, and investment appeal. They are some of the finest green quartzes available!
Russians own the most land, and thus, likely the greatest mineral wealth! Getting mineral specimens out of Russia continues to be a challenge though because of laws around them being national treasures. The Dalnegorsk sulfide deposits produce diverse specimens every year which seem to find their way to market through a few legal export means. Some tourmaline and other lapidary rough does make it to market. For the amount of mineralization they possess, one would hope we could see more specimens in the future!

We ship worldwide! Shipping occurs five to six days a week from Asheville, North Carolina, USA. Our shipping carrier is USPS. Please help us keep shipping costs down by purchasing multiple items at one time. Here are some other useful guidelines on our shipping policy.
If you make multiple purchases from us within a week's time, we can combine your orders to save on shipping costs. For the most part, we charge an additional $1 USD or less per extra item purchased. This depends on weight and total value. Heavier items and international packages may incur higher shipping charges. Ebay will automatically combine shipping for most items. Heavier items do not automatically combine though. To request combined shipping for heavier items, please complete your purchases but do not pay for them. Before paying, please request a combined invoice for heavier items by contacting us (https://contact.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ContactUserNextGen&recipient=throwinstones) . You can combine shipping for up to 1 week.
Note: Once you pay for your order, we must ship it within 1 business day to be in compliance with eBay's terms. So please do not pay until you have completed shopping.
First Class USPS International Shipping takes an average of 1 - 2 weeks to arrive to most destinations. HOWEVER, this service sometimes can have delays, and we have experienced that in rare occasion it can take up to 8 weeks, depending on your country and your customs office. Be patient and please do not leave negative or neutral feedback without first contacting us (https://contact.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ContactUserNextGen&recipient=throwinstones) to resolve the issue. We understand you need to be protected, and we want you to feel safe shopping with us. Please allow ample time for first class mail to arrive before you take action. Thank you!
We will combine international shipping for the cheapest possible price to provide First Class USPS International Shipping. For safety, we require Priority USPS International Shipping with combined orders of $200 USD or more. This shipping starts at $35 USD and goes up from there. International customers may have to pay duty and/or VAT taxes either through eBay Global Shipping or upon receipt of the item. We will do our best to ensure that you do not incur duty, but we are not responsible for any taxation that you may incur. Sometimes international packages do get held up for reasons we can not control, and USPS does not have the answer for First Class mail once it has left the USA. For customers living in Indonesia, South Africa, or India: we will only ship via USPS Registered Mail and your minimum shipping charge will be $40 USD. Please contact us (https://contact.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ContactUserNextGen&recipient=throwinstones) if you would like to ship to Indonesia, South Africa, or India.
We offer a 30-day return policy.
