  • Love the Rock Shop! We had a great time seeing kinds of different rocks. The employees were nice and knowledgeable. It was a great place to go to see what kind of rocks are local too. They also had nice polished gemstones available for purchase as well. We really enjoyed breaking our own geodes and seeing what was inside. So much fun! They also had some old mining equipment that was very fascinating to see. Crazy how people used that before machinery! Everything was nice and spacious as well!
  • Amazing stop after a fun filled afternoon spent at Royal Gorge Park. From polished gemstones, to jewelry, to volcanic rocks, to petrified wood, to break your own geodes, to meteorites, and even pieces of Martian meteorites to purchase!!! An absolute MUST stop along your journey in the fabulous Colorado West. Their amazing selection of rocks and petrified wood are yours for purchasing, with options of finding your own “diamond in the rough,” or purchasing an already polished and set in jewelry set; their assorted selection is a collection worth the stop. A fabulous find for rocks in your home garden or for those Minecraft loving children restless in the car. Knowledgeable staff and reasonable prices. A true GEM!
