  • Jurassic Jim is fantastic! He is very knowledgeable and his enthusiasm is infectious. There is so much to choose from, among my purchases were 350m year old shark poo and some Tanzanite 😀 Jim is keen to help you find what you want and will also take orders online, Facebook etc and uses pay pal. Prices are really good, I think starting at about a pound. There's also a pocket money table and competitions to get children interested, you can pick up anything, as Jim says, it's ancient rock, you can't break it! Any visit to the Isle of Wight is incomplete without a trip to Jurassic Jim.
