RE: The tariff classification of a pearl stamen bunch from Korea.

Dear Ms. Wood:

In your letter dated April 20, 1999, on behalf of Hobby Lobby Stores, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

Each stamen measures approximately 2 1/2 inches in length. The stamens are held together with a twist-tie and packaged in a plastic bag. Powder of talc is considered a semiprecious stone by Customs.

Your sample is being returned as requested.

The applicable subheading for the pearl stamen bunch will be 7116.20.4000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other articles of precious or semiprecious stones (natural, synthetic or reconstructed. The rate of duty will be 10.5% ad valorem.
