  • my wife is the usual reason for these trips as she likes looking for rocks in different places. We stopped by Chapman's and spent awhile looking through there rock and gem displays. Very nice, helpful...  more »
  • You can easily spend hours talking with the very knowledgeable staff. I am a custom wood worker and some times go there to buy semi precious minerals to use as inlay in some of my pieces  more »

  • I've been to rock shops across the U.S and I have to say that this is hands down the best one when it comes to all the things you'd rate a store on. The staff is lovely, helpful, and knowledgable about everything in the store. The selection is absurd. Every type of stone/mineral/crystal you'd want; and more. There's the store, the gallery by request, and the museum. The quality of the stones is also superb, as in some places unknowingly sell fake/misidentified stones, everything here was real. And finally the prices. Everything in this store made me realize how overpriced everywhere else is. While I was checking out, I wanted to double the amount I was paying because I felt like I got too good of a deal. 15/10 best rock store ever, coming from a critical travelling rockhound.
  • This is a favorite stopping place for gemologists and rockhounds of all levels of expertise. I picked up some Larkspar earrings made from the blue rock that is only found in a certain small area of Latin America. I also bought a small piece of aquamarine. They have a nice little museum in the back of the store and a lot of small kid items, like arrowheads, sharks teeth as well as magnatite, rose quartz, petrified everything and a lot of abnormal pieces small to large.
  • I could plunder all day here, lots of rough to choose from! Also specimens, fossils, polished stones, cabs, premade jewelry, findings, rockhounding supplies and tumbling accessories.
  • If you like store like these I would differently go. There a museum in side that my kidos love.
  • Very interesting place to stop if you like gems and fossils.
