  • This place is great. It's the only rock shop in the area, and I stop by every chance I get just to ooh and ah, even if I don't plan to buy anything. There are a couple of places in Humboldt that speci...  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.
