    This place is wonderful! I bought the most gorgeous rose quartz point. I drooled over the MASSIVE Herkimer diamond and pretty much everything else that is on the second floor. Nice specimens, nice jewelry, nice gifts.

    The most unique gift shop I've ever been in! I spent more time in here than I've ever spent in an establishment of its type! A definite must see when you go to Bar Harbor!

    This shop has some amazing stones, art, artifacts, and curios. Its worth it just to step in the door. Dont forget the upstairs either where things get really interesting.
