  • We thoroughly enjoyed our time here. It is easy to get lost admiring the pieces. You can spend as much or as little time here as you desire but the beauty is undeniable.  more »

  • My kids (Mom and Dad too) love to go in and look around...there's some amazing stuff in here. It's pricey because of the quality and the type of handmade items for sale, so we mainly just look. My oldest daughter and I went in recently, she only had a certain amount of allowance to spend. The young lady working the front floor helped her find a gemstone sold by weight and I'm certain gave her a little discount to put it in her price range. I really appreciated what she did, it taught my daughter some great negotiating skills and just plain human kindness.
  • Um..WOW! Super energizing experience. Great jewelry and friendly, knowledgeable people working there.
  • Helpful and knowledgeable about the rocks and crystals. A place of great energy. Ask for Steffi Ho!
  • Gorgeous natural creations. Must see fossils and gemstones. Everything from lamps, to art, to jewelry.
  • They have some cool stuff, that I will admit. Where they lack is in courtesy and operations. We went to the store, and were enjoying the experience. I was a little put-off by what I can only guess is the owner's 10 year old son roaming about asking everyone if they want to try anything on, and/or buy anything. Using your young son as a salesman is just in bad taste. As we continued through the store, there was a nicer lady (I am hoping not the owner's wife -- you will see why later) that was talking to us sometimes and explaining things. As my wife was looking at some necklaces in a case, the lady opened the case's slide out drawer and pulled a necklace out for her. She tried it on, and was handed a mirror. My wife was ultimately not interested and sat the mirror down on the case, as you would in any place that sells jewelery. They had some stone objects precariously perched on 1/2 inch displays and the placement of the mirror on the counter (probably along with the drawer being left open) caused them to fall. No damage, nothing broken. The lady explained that she thought they were just a little precarious and was in the process of putting them back up when the owner came pushing through in a fake nice, condescending way and just grabbed the items from his employees hands, and stormed back to the front of the store basically making my wife feel bad like he was blaming her. On top of that, it made his employee feel great I am sure. There is no reason to treat people like that when a simple accident happens -- especially when the cause is the poor display coupled with innocent shopping by a customer and employee. Just bad customer service from the owner all the way around. We just left -- I did not even feel like being there anymore. In fact, his demeanor just made us want to leave the whole town.
