    They have it all! There is more rough than 10 could cut in a lifetime. You can dig high quality agate and opal thundereggs in good weather. You can also purchased them rough, cut, and polished in the store. Some are a foot wide! The owners make their own spheres. They carry a decent amount of fossils and display pieces inside. Check out their amazing personal collection. I could spend all day there. Also, their prices are very reasonable.
