Welcome to ARROWWOOD MINERALS
About Reserving specimens: When you order specimens, I will reserve your specimens for 3 days pending your confirmation of
the order and your initiation of payment. Specimens will remain on reserve after confirmation for an additional week pending
receipt of payment. If I do not hear from you within these time frames, I will send you an email reminder and return the
specimens to inventory. Please confirm your order and initiate payment in a timely manner.
Note: Please ask to have a specimen reserved. Asking if it is available will not reserve it. On the rare occurance that it is not
available, I will inform you promtly.
I do not send out unpaid specimens "on approval" since my policy is one of 100% satisfaction. Should your purchase not meet
your expectations for any reason, simply notify me and return your purchase in its original condition within 7 days and I will
cheerfully send your refund less actual postage. No explanation necessary and all it costs you is the postage. Fair enough?
If you wish to be put on the list to be contacted when I add new specimens, simply send me your name and email address by
clicking on the link below and I will be glad to add your name to my group mailing.
Arrowwood Minerals is a "no frills" website developed to offer the best value in quality mineral specimens from my personal
collection. I am downsizing my collection and have several hundred fine specimens, as well as hundreds of additional specimens
acquired at major shows,from exchanges, and purchases and consignments from other collectors and dealer friends.
I don't have fancy graphics or a neat shopping cart / checkout feature, but I do have many minerals from locales no longer
producing, in quality that is often very difficult to find anymore. Compare the aesthetics, quality and price to those of some of the
high priced, big name dealers, and you will find that my offerings are second to none.
I do not plan on leaving "SOLD" minerals on the site for more than a few days after they are sold. There are plenty of folks that
do not have high speed connections and downloading a lot of sold specimens irks people. If you are looking for anything in
particular, send me an email with your wants and I'll see if I have anything for you. Most of my collection consists of display
quality miniatures and small cab specimens. I am a collector of high quality cerussite, and will trade or purchase if you have
anything I need.
About the pictures on the site : Please note the size of the specimen in the description, as most photos have been enlarged or
reduced in size to fit uniformily on the pages. My more recent efforts at photography are an improvement over earlier efforts.
Some specimens pose problems with reflections or "off color" concerns, so I will usually mention potential concerns if the picture
doesn't accuratly depict the specimen . I usually show a specimen in its proper display face, as well as views from the side or side
angles. Sometimes a back view or top is shown as well. If in doubt, ask for additional pics or info and I will send them to you.
