  • The geology and fossil collection was very interesting. The shop features hand crafted gifts made of local materials at very reasonable prices. There are beautiful horses outside. I highly recommend visiting.
  • Can't recommend this place. It's an arguably nice private collection of stones, but not more. I don't believe in healing stones or crystals, and found the described properties/powers of the stones a bit dubious. Don't go if you expect a proper museum.
  • Well worth a visit. Make sure to meet Thor a local who collects the minerals and even can recall date and place. Make sure to pick up your dragon glass at various prices Game of Thrones fans.
  • Interesting find. Close to the golden circle.
  • Amazing multigenerational collection of stones and minerals collected from all over Iceland. If you are a rock hound this is must see. They have specimen stones that would make museum collectors jealous.
