  • This was such a cool, big gem shop. They had a range of quality and large selection of nearly any gem you could think of. They have some very cool carvings, jewelry (not super high grade), and lots of larger specimens. Pricing was very decent here. I've been to a lot of gem shops across the country. This is second only to gem shows in the size of selection and pricing. It was a welcome surprise to stumble upon such a good find like this.
  • I live here and frequent Chapman's often. I've seen all that they have but there is so much, that every time I go, I see something new! If you like; Precious stones. Semi-precious stones. Fossilized wood. Fossilized plants. Geodes full of brilliant amethyst over four feet long. Chinese history. Gold history. Local history. I could go on forever! If you like anything that has to do with the planet Earth, this is the place. It's a hands on relaxed atmosphere and the folks there are awesome! Get your picture next to a rare true copy of one of the Chinese Tera-cotta soldiers.
  • An eclectic collection of rocks and minerals. There are offerings of all sizes and prices. Petrified wood, small rocks and minerals and a variety of stones, geodes and other interesting items to make it worth your time to stop in when on the 101.
  • We love stopping by this shop when we have some time to spare. The quality of everything I've purchased has been better than expected. I'm highly sensitive to most metals and synthetics and have had no issues with the Sterling Silver rings or clasps on their cord necklace pieces. My 4 year old loves looking at the sculpture room, and especially the glowing rocks. Chapman's is a great place for an afternoon visit with the family.
  • Amazing shop/gallery /museum if you appreciate gems and minerals. We were very impressed!
