I can't say enough about this shop and Bill the owner - I LOVED their rocks, crystals, fossils, shark, dinosaur and megalodon teeth, jewelry, geodes, raw stones, finely polished stones and even small tumbled stones. From fun stuff for kids to exquisite huge crystals - you name it, this store has it! We leisurely browsed the shelves of beautiful items from all over the world, but I had so many questions and Bill was extremely knowledgeable offering information about characteristics, anomalies or special attributes of the items we were interested in. We were only planning to browse and maybe buy something small, but since there were so many amazing pieces I couldn't decide so we ended up buying a bunch of rocks and crystals. Incredible quality and reasonable prices. Like the Terminator, "I'll be back." Lol! But seriously we are excited to go back as Bill explained he has a lot more inventory not displayed. They also have a store we're looking forward to checking out called Pinapple Rocks in Sarasota.

It was a fun and interesting experience and I couldn't be happier with our beautiful works of nature's art we picked up here at Anna Maria Rocks. Thanks again for everything Bill, your little shop made a big impression!!

This shop is wonderful! Such a variety of crystals, rocks and fossils. I'm trying to remember the name of the person working while we were there, but she was so knowledgeable and enjoyable to talk to! Prices were reasonable and such an interesting variety. I could have probably gone into the store 20 minutes after leaving and see new items that I didn't see before.

I highly recommend visiting this store! If you have a little one that loves rocks and jewelry, they have a jewelry making table in the center of the store. Again, reasonably priced.

Had an amazing selection of crystals and beautiful geodes. Very helpful and informative about each crystal/rock. The jewelry selection was amazing as well, along with a section for kids to be able to create their own necklaces. Definitely will love to visit again and add to my collection.

My son Evan has recently become a rock collector. The manager of the store was AMAZING with him. He had ALL the questions. She was patient and answered all of them. He said multiple time this was his favorite store. I later brought my other nieces and nephews and was equally as patient and kind. A great place to find unique things and make something personal. Check it out!!

Stumbled upon this great little shop looking for shark teeth. The owner couldn’t have been more hospitable and knowledgeable about the shark teeth I found for my granddaughter. She’s an avid shark fan and her reaction when I told her about the megalodon and bull shark teeth I picked up was PRICELESS. I can’t wait to bring her in for a visit!!

My husband and popped into Anna Maria Rocks by accident after stopping outside to take photos. The range of 'rocks' and jewlery is fantastic. The knowledge of the store owner is fantastic, he could give so many details about the specifics and general information of the stones and rocks. A lot of the jewlery is carefully hand crafted and some pieces can be adjusted/made to order while you wait. A great find and we will definitely return on our next visit to the island

When I told Bill that I teach third grade science in Georgia (which includes rocks, minerals and fossils), he shared all sorts of facts about geology and fossils specific to the area, including how to tell the difference between megalodon, mako and great white teeth, and the state stone of Florida, agatized coral. I bought a meteorite, a bag of shark teeth from the Pearl River and a bag from the Sahara Desert! Bill even gave me some free raw quartz crystals for my students. He has photos of his suppliers from around the world posted throughout the shop, and was happy to share stories about each one. Anna Maria Rocks offers travelers an amazing variety, and Bill is incredibly friendly and knowledgeable.

I had a good experience stopping in on impulse after dinner at The Sand Bar to look at the sharks' teeth. Robert was very welcoming and helped me customize a necklace. Great to see shops with extended hours to accommodate browsers after dinner.

Went in after reading the wonderful reviews on Trip Advisor. Unfortunately the lady working did not acknowledge us the whole time we were there. There was only 1 other person with three small kids making a necklace. She was helping them out which I totally understand, but she could have said hello and let me know if you need any help. We wanted to buy some jewelry but after standing near the register for awhile we left. Very disappointed.

You’re right, you should have been spoken to during the 10 minutes you and your family were in the store. It’s not the level of customer service we strive for and we are sorry. Counting your party, there were 10 people in the store which is packed for a 10x15 ft store. It can be a little overwhelming for one employee. It was not slow in the store as you have implied. Ruth was busy with a group of 5 with 3 children all getting necklaces measured and putting them together. We focus on children and we will continue to do so. We wish you would have said something while you were there, of course we would have been happy to help you. We try our best to make sure everyone has a great experience in our store. We are sorry you felt so disrespected that you thought a one star review was justified. One star indicates the worst possible experience you can have in a store. We try our best and sometimes it’s not good enough.

This is such a cool shop! So many different meanings to the rocks that they shared with us. We would definitely go back.
