This place was AMAZING! More petrified wood here than in the park. If you love rocks, this is a must do!

This was such a fun place to stretch our legs and see all of the great fossils, rocks etc. They have the biggest coy fish I have ever seen in their pond and an interesting water fall feature. The prices for their items are actually cheaper than the same items found in other shops in the area and they have... More

Had a coupon for a free piece of petrified wood so went in to look around. The shop is very neat and organized. There were all sorts of souvenirs! There is also a koi pond with turtles too! To get your free petrified wood you go out to a yard and pick it out yourself! Kind of hard to find... More

If you're traveling Route 66 and visiting the petrified forest/painted desert, don't miss Jim Greys Petrified Wood co. Located in Holbrook at the junction of hwy 77 and US 180 ( the hwy that goes to the south entrance to the park), this is the best selection of everything in the area. Plus, it's a free museum. Words cannot do... More

A friend told us to be sure and stop by here before entering the Petrified Forest National Park. It is a museum and a store and a science center. Lots and lots of inexpensive and expensive things to buy. My favorite part was the "back yard" where they had small rocks through huge petrified wood to buy. My husband bought... More

I have been a fossil collector for over 25 years and have serious doubts regarding the authenticity of many of their items (think China). Their petrified wood is overpriced as well. Skip this place.

This shop is truly amazing with a wonderful selection of stones and petrified wood to be purchased. You will probably see more petrified wood around this store than if you drive through the forest itself. The store also has a good selection of other souvenirs, including those for the nearby Route 66.

We travel a lot around the southwest US and seen a lot of rock shops I can't say enough about this place we have seen petrified wood but nothing of the magnitude and quantity Jim gray has. I actually would recommend stopping here first and spending time looking at everything they have including their museum area. If anything it will... More

his was a great shop with lots of souvenirs. It has also beautiful tables, lamps, and other home decor. It was large and well organized. We also got a free piece of petrified wood and a few fetishes of various sizes. Worth a stop. Some things are pricey but there are affordable choices. Be careful with children cause there are...
