I didn't find much I could afford here but the items for sale and on display were truly Museum quality. They had huge pieces in the lobby and some amazing one of a kind pieces, including a great meteorite collection.

Fossils, cool minerals, knowledgeable staff. For rockhounds and the general public. A great place to go. Should be a mandatory part of the New York experience.

Museum and store in one can. Very beautiful can. The comparison of other reviewers to the Museum of Natural History is valid one. It is the exhibition which fascinates. Amazing, sometimes unbelievable colors of gems.

Check out this amazing collection of rocks, minerals, gems and fossils. They've even got butterflies and insects sprinkled in. You can find most everything, and the prices range from just a few to thousands of dollars. AND they love window shoppers!
