I finally identified this coral...I originally thought they were some kind of worm casings...alas,,,,they are a coral found in Florida waters. The name Fire coral was given because they are capable of inflicting a sting...not so bad...but still a sting. There are 9 bigger pieces in this lot...and there are a few smaller ones. They are white and have quite different shapes!
I ship when I can. What that means is...I ship as soon as humanly possible...for me. I use the US Post Office and I try to be as accurate with my shipping/handling charges as possible. Sometimes I am right on the money...and then there are times...I am not. All I can say is...I do my best all the time. I believe in using the common sense approach. I ship basically on faith. If you wish to buy insurance, etc...you will have to let me know...but as of yet...the PO has been 100% with delivery! I have to say this however...please don't hold me responsible if you don't receive your package as a result of the PO making an error. If you want to insure your package...great...if not...then I really can't be responsible.
Also....a word on international. I will ship international...but the likelihood that I may be wrong on the shipping is greater here. Sometimes the shipping/handling charges are not adequate for international...so if the postage seems too low for international...then please understand and be ready to compensate me for the extra postage. On the reverse side...if my shipping/handling charges are too high...and you have paid thru PAYPAL...a refund will be issued. Thanks for your understanding.
I should also mention that when I mark an order "shipped" that is for my purpose...it eliminates the confusion and the onset of a 'senior' moment for me when I am packing items up. Thanks!!!
Please...only PAYPAL and money orders. Thanks so much.
