This is a genuine drilled orthoceras fossil bead, front & back shown. There are pieces of other animals on the back & sides. The cephalopod fossil is topped with black stone, & is great for wire wrapping, metal work & other uses. I make them into pendants & earrings.
The orthoceras fossil is nearly 2 1/2 inches (6.1 cm) long, & over 1/2 an inch (1.6 cm) across at the widest point. The drill hole is about 3 mm across inside.
Orders are mailed within 2 business days of payment, or sooner when possible, unless shop messages indicate shipping delays due to statutory holidays or other exceptions.
Shipping to countries other than Canada can take a lot of time - sometimes more than 2 weeks to the US and even longer abroad. Expedited shipping is available for an extra fee.
You may need to pay customs, duties or taxes on your purchase in your jurisdiction.
Gift packaging is available on request!
Almost all items are flat rate shipping - buy as many as you want for the same postage!
Canadian orders will have Goods & Services Tax (GST) or HST (Harmonized Sales Tax) added automatically at the payment stage of checkout.
Returns & exchanges
I work hard to make sure all of my customers are happy! You have 15 days after you receive your purchase to contact me if you have any concerns. I will replace, repair or refund if your order arrives damaged/not as described (but you may need to return it at my expense).
I accept returns, as long as you contact me first. Non-Canadian orders must be returned by regular mail (with a customs form), as I cannot accept out-of-country courier deliveries. The shipping costs in these cases are paid by the buyer. Earring returns are subject to an ear hook replacement fee, as the hooks cannot be resold.
Many of my natural items, such as shells and geodes, are somewhat fragile & cannot be dropped or mishandled without risking breakage, so please handle them with love & care!
Wholesale & custom order inquiries are welcome!
Once paid for (including down payments), custom orders cannot be refunded.
