  • If you are looking for an authentic Rock shop, this is the place. The drive alone, through Gates Pass, is spectacular. Arriving at the shop, you know you struck gold in the terms of authentic rock sho...  read more »

  • Head NW on Kinnney rd. from Ajo Way, on the way to Tucson Mountain Park, Old Tucson and Desert Museum and you'll find this unique gem. Not some fancy rock shop more reminiscent of an old miners shack....  read more »
  • Best place to find fossils, crystals, human artifacts and just great cool stuff. Once, I bought some polinesian string money from the 1800's. The owners, Rich and Ron, are wonderful, knowledgeable people that make you feel like family. Perfect place for children 2 yrs to 90.
  • Worth a trip! This place was great! So many interesting things to look at, look up, look down, look at every shelf or you might miss something really spectacular. If you love rocks, gems, bones, history or artifacts you need to see this place! The guys that own the place are so funny and kind, if you have a question or want to know more about anything just ask, they seemed to really care about each piece in this shop and knew so much.
  • Wonderful place to stop for those interested in rocks and specimens from all over the world. Glad we stopped to pick up some things to add to my daughter's growing collection. The man who owns it is very nice and very informative.
  • My son and I had fun visiting this shop. They have a nice variety big and small. The owner was very nice and enjoyed answering our questions.
  • I am always a kid in a candy store here. I cd happily browse for hours. The owners are great--they love to share their knowledge with anyone who wants to learn at any level. The person who complained about the place being a little dirty is an idiot. This place isn't a museum. It's a place for people who love rocks, fossils, and Native American artifacts. If you can't stand a little dirt, pick a different hobby.
