I had some time to kill and was wondering in and out of most of the shops on Main Street. I probably spent more time in here than any of the others, because of all the cool stuff to look at. Not a big rock hound but the store is fascinating just the same. Highly recommended for anyone interested in... More

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 is a fairly small rock shop, but it is literally packed with specimens from stem to stern. There are goodies for every budget. There are a lot of specimens that I left in their safekeeping until I can come back with more cash in my pocket! Excellent collection.

The owners have a 41 yr collection of amazing fossils and stones that make you step back and think "are they real" some of these are in the thousands- would like to see who has the cash for a $25K relic.

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!
