(Pipestone is clay formation stone found between layers of quartzite. Our stone is hand quarried by Native American Indians at the Pipestone National Monument it is a long labor intensive process. Since the stone is a natural formation it may have inclusions which are part of the stone. Both the red and the black stone may have hard spots, the red may have spots of iron ore and black may have white or black lines which are harder to carve.
These same features often make for a beautiful and unique finished product. But if you just do not like the stone that you have been sent you may return it we will gladly exchange it for a fee. The stone is guaranteed to be free of naturally occurring cracks or we will replace the stone free of charge.
The black stone pictured is quarried in Kenora Canada. The red Pipestone or catlinite, is quarried from here in Pipestone Minnesota, it is a sedimentary rock basically formed as solidified clay. Pipestone is a soft stone, fragile and needs to be handle with respect and care. Keepers can not assume responsibility for this inherent fragility; sales are nonrefundable for both pipes and stone. if your stone or pipe arrives broken please take pictures of the damage it send to us and return it to your post office with original box, we insure all packages. Contact us immediately we will work with you to place a claim and we will replace your order as quickly as possible.
