  • Stopped in on a whim after hiking flat iron. Owner was super friendly and attentive. Lots of gems to choose from, left with several great pieces. Highly recommend!

  • If you want a genuine rock shop geared toward collectors, this is the place. Owner Ron is a salt-of-the-earth local who is a clearly an expert and very passionate. Aside from the amazing pieces displayed inside the shop, there are boxes of bulk, raw material just outside the shop that are priced by the pound. Love the pictures/newspaper cutouts throughout the shop of the owner's involvement in the local mining/geology/exploration activities. Not overpriced or a kitschy, "healing crystal/astrology" type of rock shop that you find in the touristy shopping areas. 10/10 would recommend.
  • Awesome place! the raptor head on the wall kind of freaked me out, but Ron was so cool to meet. I love rocks and geology of the area so this was like being a kid in a candy shop
  • Saw some really neat raw copper ore and gold from his mine. Also learned a lot of neat things about the lost Dutchman. Ron is definitely an expert! My son got a cool geode and my mom got copper bracelet.
  • My son and I really enjoyed visiting with Ron and learning more about the rock specimens and fossils in his shop. The shop has a wide selection at reasonable prices. We will definitely stop in next time we are in the area. Highly recommend this shop to all fellow rock hounds and fossil hunters.
  • Really cool pieces and owner is extremely nice. Overall great experience. I would recommend going off the road and visiting.
