Some lovely and interesting pieces on display and worth paying a visit however, it is quite small inside and we found 45 minutes generous time including the gift shop. Shop prices were not cheap but staff friendly and knowledgeable.

Amazing displays of precious and semiprecious stones, au naturel. Enormous natural emerald. Some of the pieces of stones are over 6 foot tall. Lots of interesting things in the gift shop. Takes about an hour or so to get round.
