  • I'm not a rock hound, but this place is so cool that I can't but help to stop by every time I'm in the area. They have a great selection of rocks / minerals; highly recommended.  more »
  • Very interesting place. If you have an extra half hour great place to stop. Very friendly staff and lots of fun stuff to see.  more »

  • This is no little rock shop. It spans about 3,000-4,000 square feet and is broken up into 3 sections: the free (but donations happily accepted) stone/fossil museum, the rocks/beads sale room, and the stone art sales room. There is also additional outdoor space for more raw stone sales. The museum was my favorite feature. It was uncrowded and quiet, which allowed for an enjoyable learning experience.
  • Have been driving by this place for decades and finally stopped today. A must see for beautiful rock specimens of all types. Bought some sparkly, glittery rocks for display under lights. A+ shop.
