  • A small gem of a store with sweet and personable owners. I bought a wooden statuette and a $23 necklace with a discount of $3 by the grandfather. A must see for the original and unique gifts ♥ ️ ♥ ️ ♥ ️ ♥ ️

  • Ron and Richard are amazing! They have so much love for what they do. They have wonderful specimens and such a variety! It's always a pleasure to see what new stones you can find!
  • What a crazy place! Same guy here for 54 years. Super nice and really knows his stuff. Store is like something from an offbeat movie.
  • I absolutely loved going to Tuscon Mineral and Gem World! It was my very first stop when I came to Tuscon for vacation. Ron, the owner, was extremely knowledgeable with all the questions I asked him about the minerals in the shop. He even gave me some great recommendations on which stones would be a good addition to my energy medicine toolkit. I had a wonderful time browsing and an even better time taking my new crystals home for further study. I highly recommend a stop in, you will not be disappointed!
  • The owners are brothers and so nice! Dog friendly, they have 3 dogs running around and it's a great place to pick up souvenirs and take pics!
  • Called about bringing in some things to look at to see if the store would consider buying. Told me to come down and I asked if they wanted wholesale or more unique pieces. The man was rude and hung up
