  • A guide, with excellent Spanish, accompanied us during the visit. He explained the whole story of fossilized stones and also detailed the process of production of their products. Worth a visit, because it costs nothing and you are not obligated to buy their products.

  • Very cool objects, furniture and jewelry made out of fossils from the surrounding mountains! The quick tour was interesting to see how they create the pieces from giant rock slabs. The prices aren't too bad and there isn't really any pressure to buy anything. We got some jewelry and simple pieces for our house. There was lots of really cool creations though.
  • Incredibile objects at an accessible price, shipped directly to your home !!
  • Amazing! Sea fossils embedded in sedimentary rock 300 to 500 million years old is transformed into tables, sinks, ornamental pieces, jewelry. Every piece has visible fossils in rock harder than marble.
  • When we win the lottery, I am coming back here for a big order.
  • Amazing fosils, wish i could have a kitchen work top with some of their amazing polished stone.
