We visited as part of our organised tour of Antigua. We were introduced to Pamela who gave us a wonderful insight into where Jade us found around the world and how it is worked by the Maya people and used in their ceremonies. Very interesting and informative. Good displays of Maya art. Terrific place to visit.

Must visit this museum/workshop and shop in central Antigua. We were given an introductory talk and given a gift of a 'worry doll' each on entry. It was short but informative. You can watch the jade being cut in the workshop and go on into the shop which has jewellery in all price ranges. There is also a small museum, the lady there was very helpful, it was very quiet but worth visiting, most people were taking advantage of the free WIFI.

Great place to visit. Very informative, introductory chat and so much to see. There are the cutters who you can watch for ages and the finished jewellery which you can purchase. There is food and drink here as well as toilets. A definite must if you are visiting this amazing town.

I really got an education coming here. First there is a difference between Jade form Guatemala and jade from China. Guatemalan jade has a higher mohs number. There are many colors and the newest and rarest color is lavender jade. If you want to control cost you can get the jewelry in sterling silver instead of gold. I saw a couple of pair of earrings with great differences in price from $30 to $3000 all based on the quality of the stones.
