  • I am not a rock hound at all. This shop turned me into one!! They had a large selection of local and imported items. The local items were very interesting, like cracking open your own geode right...  more »

  • The inventory here is always so amazing and diverse. Hands down my most FAVORITE shop in Estes. I always stop in when I'm in town to grab another geode for my collection. I love that I can choose one and have them crack it right there in store with their nifty cracking machine. The staff is always friendly and very knowledgeable about the stones and rocks they carry. Truly a must visit for any geology lover. The prices, I think, are pretty reasonable for the larger pieces, though maybe a wee bit high for the tiny ones. Yet I haven't found another shop with such an array of geological goodies to choose from.
  • I always love looking around this place whenever I'm in Estes Park. I always try to limit myself, but I'll usually end up getting multiple things. The employees knew what they were talking about and one had a ten minute conversation with my dad about geology. Definitely an amazing and unique shop. Be sure to look all around the store, it's an incredible place. Crack open a geode or two and be amazed at the crystals residing within!
