    Wow! So very much wow. The selection and variety here is amazing. Everything from rough stones. Fossils, crystals, beads, gems and jewelry to tools to facet stones and mine them. museum on site of the finer specimens. Whether you only have $5 to your name or $50,000 you can leave here with something amazing. I stop in every single time I drive by(every 1-3 months) and make sure I at least look around for what's new. The staff here are very friendly and patient and happy to answer any questions you may have. You should definitely stop by. And if you live within 50 miles you should consider coming here to peruse their outdoor landscape rock section. They have so very many unique large mineral specimens that will really spice up your yard.

    Fantastic selection and friendly, helpful staff. They even have a cool little museum! So glad I found this 'gem' of a store on my road trip.

    I purchased some raw pink quartz and adventurine. I also purchased a piece of polished orange calcite. I brought my pieces home and place them in the garden. The orange calcite is now white after sitting in the rain for the last couple of months. It was dyed...I am disappointed.

    Great rock shop! Free little museum you can walk through and a gallery is also available for requested tours. Lots of rocks, minerals and fossils available and pretty low prices!
