A - I understand that
you can never truly connect with a crystal until meeting it properly. Although I make every effort to use
the clearest photography and show every detail,
only you can feel a connection to a stone. For
this reason I do offer refunds on all crystals
that are returned, (minus P+P and charges) undamaged.
We must receive the crystal in exactly the same condition it left us, and within 20 working days of our original posting.
You must contact me within 3 working days to let me know that you are returning them, are you will not be eligable to a refund.
Please contact me within 3 working days of receiving them.
A - Although I try to ensure the crystal is well packaged and cannot be damaged in transit, some are very delicate and best efforts cannot guarantee that every crystal makes it home unscathed. If your crystal has been damaged in the post you must contact me immediately, stating what's wrong with the crystal. This must happen within 3 days from delivery. Then send back the crystal, and I will arrange a refund (- P+P and charges) as soon as possible. The e-mail must be sent or your refund may be void.

all crystals within 2 working day of purchase. If you're concerned, please contact
me and I will attempt to track down the crystals.

- How do you get the crystals and check they're from ethical sources?
I rarely get the
opportunity to collect them from nature myself: most of England is fairly poor in minerals, apart from right up North in Cumbria, or right down South in Cornwall, about a 4hr drive...
I get 90% of the crystals on Pixie Crystals directly from people who own, work in or or visit regularly with smaller familly-owned crystal localities around the world. I always deal with the same people now and, after 11 years, as I know them individually and how they handle their cystals. So, I get my Kyanites and Citrines from one lovely chap, and Tourmalines from another wonderful man, etc... and return to these same friends each year. I only deal with hand-collected and respected crystals.
I have been studying crystals for over 20 years now,
and am adept at looking for physical markings/signs on the crystals, which give
away whether they have been hand-collected or forcefully removed. ie. Quartzes (Clear, Cit, Ame, Smoky)
with self-healing / good key releases are hand-picked; ones with fractures around
the base have not.
Apart from hand-polished unique rare pieces, I dont really ever go in for polished / cut stones; I feel Mother Nature makes geometric shapes, and surface-finishes that mankind cannot even slightly recreate.
