Can I order a unit size not offered on your website?
Custom packaging is available providing sufficient stock is available. This service will incur a surcharge fee depending on the product and number of units required. Lead times are dependent on our current schedule. For more information please contact our sales support team.
When will an out of stock item be available again?
Each OREAS CRM is produced from a unique parcel of natural rocks and ores so when stocks of a CRM are depleted, we are unable to perfectly reproduce it due to the unique nature of the mineral composition of the original batch. For this reason, a CRM designed as direct replacement of a particular CRM is given a unique code and its own round robin certification program.
Do you ship internationally?
Yes, we currently ship worldwide to over 130 countries. Once you have added items to cart, please use the drop down list in the ‘Shipping’ section to see if your country is available for shipping.
Do you deliver to PO Boxes?
