looking to buy stones online
I'm interested in picking up a couple more stones. But as I'm living in China currently...finding a place here with verifiable quality? Not so much. So internet it is. So I'm looking for recommendations for places online to order stones from that have good quality specimens. Not museum quality or anything, since I'm on a budget, but good quality tumbled or rough pieces (and ones where you're sure you getting what you asked for, since some stones can be confused with one another in pictures).

Preferably, of course, someplace that ships worldwide. Though failing that, I have family and friends in the States that could ship things to me. Specifically, in case it helps, I'm looking for Red Calcite, Honey Calcite, Larvikite, and Fire Agate.

Thanks in advance!

However, it seems as though shipping outside of the US and Canada is very expensive :( If you decide to order from them I would recommend having a friend or family member shipping it for you.

I've been pretty happy with 13moons stuff.
