Makers Minerals ships all orders with 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 misplaced package by calling your local USPS and getting GPS coordinates to help resolve the issue.
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.
YES, absolutely! Makers Minerals supplies QUALITY, natural minerals at an affordable price. All our minerals are 100% natural and untreated unless otherwise stated. For example, we have "lab-created" turquoise AND natural, untreated turquoise. Each mineral/listing will explicitly state if the material is natural, lab-created, synthetic, dyed, or treated in the listing title and listing description.
It is always advised to wear nitrile gloves, when handling crushed minerals, especially mineral powders. I also would advise a N99 mask if you are sanding minerals or are using mineral powders in your project. In addition, make sure you have proper ventilation.
Personally, I wear 4mil nitrile gloves, an N99 mask, and eye protection everyday!

Absolutely perfect!! The stones and minerals are exactly as described and photographed. They are consistent with the finest pigments an artist can buy and certainly superior to anything I might try to do on my own. :) Everything is beautifully packaged and labeled clearly. The package was mailed and arrived quickly. And as always, Missy is great with communication.
