Seller Notes: (see description below and pictures)

As the pictures show this auction is for an incredibly interesting and good-looking geode a little over 3 inches tall, the agate portion of the geode is strikingly shaped in the form of the country India.  I am placing a very high "buy it now" price on this item because it is a family heirloom and part of my father's inheritance, my dad was a geologist who collected geodes throughout his adult life.  Our family lived in India for six years, from 1975 to 1981, and now the rest my family has voted to either get a very good price for it or not to sell it at all - - we consider it quite a keepsake. 

NOTE:  I will not be accepting returns on this item if our price is met.  (I have to split up any proceeds with other members of my family & I don't wish to work at getting the winning bidder's money back from them if a refund is requested as much as two weeks after the sale completes). 

The geode will be shipped in a small box encompassed by a larger box, the small box was formerly a box designed for holding a watch while the larger box has a considerable amount of black velvet material suitable for displaying the geode.  (With a larger stretch of the imagination you could say the reverse looks a bit like Sri Lanka, the island nation immediately below India on the map.)    Please judge the condition and beauty of this lovely geode by the pictures.

My shipping terms are listed below.  

JOE'S US DOMESTIC SHIPPING RULES FOR THIS AUCTION ONLY...   

I will ship the geode via registered mail, I as the seller will accept the shipping cost and the shipping cost will be free to the buyer.  Registered mail moves a bit more slowly than priority mail, but is the most secure way of mailing an item.  I am most likely not offering flat rate USPS priority mail as an option, but eBay customer service told me that since eBay strangely does not list USPS registered shipping as a option for a way of shipping items, and since I have to select some sort of shipping method from eBay's list of shipping methods in order to list the auction, my "selection" was priority mail.  The eBay representative did say, however, that I can stipulate in the wording of the auction that I will ship via registered mail only.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING RULES FOR THIS AUCTION ONLY...

I will ship the geode via international registered mail, I will accept the shipping cost and the shipping cost will be free to the buyer.  Registered mail moves a lot more slowly than international priority mail, but is the most secure way of mailing an item.  I am most likely not offering flat rate USPS international priority mail as an option, but eBay customer service told me that since eBay strangely does not list USPS registered shipping as a option for a way of shipping items, and since I have to select some sort of shipping method from eBay's list of shipping methods in order to list the auction, my "selection" was priority mail.  The eBay representative did say, however, that I can stipulate in the wording of the auction that I will ship via international registered mail only.
