Makers Minerals ships all orders with a tracking, including to locations outside of the United States. Our customers can follow their order using the tracking number that we always provide or through the Etsy app. Please contact your postal provider if you did not receive your package, especially if your tracking says "delivered". If you reside in the United States, we are happy to help you locate your package by calling your local USPS and getting GPS coordinates for your package and/or submitting a claim stating that your package might have been misplaced or stolen. Makers Minerals is not responsible for packages that were marked as "Delivered" by your postal provider.
Mineral chips are usually tumbled to slightly tumbled pieces that can range in size and shape. Most shops buy mineral chips from a wholesaler (usually China) and then resell them on ETSY or elsewhere. They are rarely curated or tumbled by the actual seller.
Crushed minerals are very different! They are not mass produced or offered at wholesale. Usually, the seller (myself) hand picks the material to be crushed; therefore, they can control the quality of the end-product.

I'm working on developing all natural finishes for electric guitars that out perform petroleum based finishes... Especially ethically. One problem with most (otherwise natural) boiled linseed oil (aka flaxseed oil) is that they contain heavy metal driers of nefarious origins. I like to know where all my ingredients come from. One chemical commonly used as a dryer in wood finishing oils (to help them cure faster) is Manganese Carbonate (MnCO3). Another name for MnCO3 is Rhodochrosite. I'm super pleased that I found a source for this mineral that is all natural and traceable to it's origins. I'm ordering the crushed Howlite next for experiments using it as a white pigment. Thanks so much! Jason from Atlanta Earth Guitars LLC
