Didn't purchase but certainly enjoyed all the rocks. Jewelry was nice although not the quality that I like in southwest jewelry. People are friendly and willing to help. Lots of inrteresting rocks and minerals.

Great local rocks, great service! I bought a couple of things here for my classroom, namely a box with different types of minerals found in Colorado as well as one from China! They were both great and made locally! Love this shop!

This shop has it all from small inexpensive geodes to rare $35K dinosaur fossils. We stopped in after a fine meal next door and I soon found myself asking if they had a shipping service? A must see of your a geology buff!
