All stones are shipped by the US postal service. They will be sent out either insured mail, or registered mail, which ever is more economical based on the value.

Up to $200 value - $6.00
$201 to $300 value - $8.50
$301 to $400 value - $9.00

$701 to $900 value - $16.50 (signature required)
$901 to $1100 value - $18.75 (signature required)
Over $1100 value - $25 to $66 (registered mail)
Shipping to Canada, Australia, Singapore, China and most places outside of the US is by registered mail. The rates will come up in the shopping cart and are $27.50
For UK orders, the stone will be sent out first class mail or Registered mail if you ask for it. There is no insurance available going to the UK, Australia or to Canada or most other countries through the US postal service. So shipping loss is at your own risk.
All shipments are FOB Millersburg, PA Post Office. I can't be responsible for parcels lost by the post office. If you would like some additional insurance please contact me.
