RE: The tariff classification of a Gemstone Globe from China.

Dear Mr. Copelin:

In your letter dated May 17, 2004, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample is a Gemstone Globe, vendor stock number MRGLB410. The item consists of a gemstone globe in a zinc alloy base with a clock, a thermometer, and a hydrometer. The gemstones used in the globe are African jade, red jasper, turquoise and agate. Latitude and longitude lines and country names are made of silver golden screen. Note 1(a) to Chapter 71, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), provides that all articles consisting wholly or partly of precious or semiprecious stones are to be classified in that chapter.

Your sample is being returned as requested.

The applicable subheading for the gemstone globe will be 7116.20.4000, HTS, which provides for “Articles of natural or cultured pearls, precious or semiprecious stones (natural, synthetic or reconstructed) Other.” The rate of duty will be 10.5% ad valorem. This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of the ruling or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist Lawrence Mushinske at 646-733-3036.
