    He'd run annual sales around the holidays for at least a few years before this fiasco. The shipping was always slow--I know mine took until around March to land and I believe I'd ordered around mid November.

    With that said, it is indeed a sad state of affairs.

    Thanks for the heads up on the 180 day window. I still had to June, but it really looks like it's not going to show. Filed a claim with paypal yesterday.

    Kinda bummed, I was looking forward to having the stone.

    An intresting thought is that the quarry, cheap labor, and the market, still exist. Someone could come in, mine some stones, cut and lap them, and sell them only when they were ready for shipping with very little start up capital.

    Better yet ship them to a U.S., EU or other partner who would sell and ship without the international shipping delays.

    There is a lot more to this then we know. He never decided to go in this direction we can surmise and I would guess he used the money from pre-selling the stones to go through the rest of the process. No money out of pocket type thing. The problem is that it became using the NEXT guys money to ship you YOUR stone and so on. It becomes like a pyramid scheme and then the foundation falters and , well, here we are.
