Internet sales are basically nonnegotiable, so we post our minerals at our lowest retail price. The Crystal Circle has a reputation for reasonable pricing even amongst the ultra-competitive mineral show market, where we display alongside dozens of other mineral dealers. Selling minerals online is a labor-intensive process, and shipping one piece at a time is quite time consuming. Discounts are offered only to motivate buyers to purchase 3 minerals or more at a time.
For Customers purchasing 3 or more minerals at a time, we offer the following discounts:
- 10% off on orders over $200 for 3 or more pieces
- 15% off on orders over $400 for 3 or more pieces
- 20% off on orders over $600 for 3 or more pieces
These discounts do not apply to single specimens priced above these values, (when purchased by itself) only on purchases of 3 or more minerals. These discounts apply to each transaction at the time of payment -- they do not apply to orders with multiple payment methods or accumulate over multiple purchases.
Minerals Marked NET, the discounts do not apply to specimens with the notation "NET" after the price. This is the lowest possible price for the individual piece.
However, we do apply the NET price towards discounts on 2 or more other pieces you may want to purchase. For example: an order for:
- Tourmaline priced: $300 NET
- Azurite priced $200
- Apatite priced $150
The subtotal exceeds the minimum $600 minimum to qualify for the 20% discount. However the $300 Tourmaline is marked "NET," so the discount only applies to the remaining two specimens. Total discount = $70 ($350 x 20%). The grand total would therefore be $650 - $70 = $580 plus shipping and insurance (sales tax for OH residents).
** Please use the order form to VERIFY a group of specimens you are interested in. It will automatically calculate the quantity discount if applicable, you can do this several times. Only when you click SUBMIT, will I receive your order. Once received, I will send an invoice with shipping and insurance charges added ( sales tax for Ohio Residents).
