NOTES

1. Except where their context or Note 4 to this Chapter otherwise requires, the headings of this Chapter cover only products which are in the crude state or which have been washed (even with chemical substances eliminating the impurities without changing the structure of the product), crushed, ground, powdered, levigated, sifted, screened, concentrated by flotation, magnetic separation or other mechanical or physical processes (except crystallisation), but not products which have been roasted, calcined, obtained by mixing or subjected to processing beyond that mentioned in each heading. The products of this Chapter may contain an added anti-dusting agent, provided that such addition does not render the product particularly suitable for specific use rather than for general use.


2. This Chapter does not cover:
    (a) Sublimed sulphur, precipitated sulphur or colloidal sulphur (2802);
    (b) Earth colours containing 70% or more by weight of combined iron evaluated as Fe2 O3 (2821);
    (c) Medicaments or other products of Chapter 30;
    (d) Perfumery, cosmetic or toilet preparations (Chapter 33);
    (e) Setts, curbstones or flagstones (6801); mosaic cubes or the like (6802); roofing, facing or damp course slates (6803);
    (f) Precious or semi-precious stones (7102 or 7103);
    (g) Cultured crystals (other than optical elements) weighing not less than 2.5g each, of sodium chloride or of magnesium oxide, of 3824; optical elements of sodium chloride or of magnesium oxide (9001);
    (h) Billiard chalks (9504); or
    (ij) Writing or drawing chalks and tailors' chalks (9609).


3. Any products classifiable in 2517 and any other heading of the Chapter are to be classified in 2517.


4. 2530 applies, inter alia, to: vermiculite, perlite and chlorites, unexpanded; earth colours, whether or not calcined or mixed together; natural micaceous iron oxides; meerschaum (whether or not in polished pieces); amber; agglomerated meerschaum and agglomerated amber, in plates, rods, sticks or similar forms, not worked after moulding; jet; strontianite (whether or not calcined), other than strontium oxide; broken pieces of pottery, brick or concrete.
