Like a MUSEUM! But free. You can see hundreds of great items. Go to see the beautiful gems. And for a few dollars ($3-35) you can buy a small keepsake, or for ~ $150 a nice keepsake - the onyx boxes were nice. When you win the lottery, you can buy the big pieces. ! Super store. Very welcoming! Go!

I was visiting NYC and called ahead to see if they had some varieties of quartz points. Robert (the manager) assured me they had the selection I was looking for, and he helped me when I was in the store. I found my *dream* point: a Brazilian rutilated quartz that was more stunning than I had ever imagined this variety could be. He also went down to the basement stock for me, and brought up a striking dark green garden quartz point that looked like a sky with black clouds. And bonus: they had a store-wide sale on that week, which really helped with making these purchases affordable. My husband--who isn't even into crystals--ended up taking the latter from me to have on his desk at work! The fact that they ship worldwide makes Astro Gallery of Gems a go-to for me in the future. Thank you for this wonderful experience--it made my trip, and my crystals definitely retained the amazing energy from this store!!

Very welcoming and beautiful gallery with exquisite gems of all colors, qualities, sizes, prices. It surprises one in its variety and presentation. The energy of the place draws one in. A real treat. Tranquil space right off the hustle and bustle streets of Fifth Avenue in Midtown Manhattan.

I bought a clock in an amethyst housing. Astro mailed the clock to me since I live on the west coast. The clock was damaged during transit. Initially, Astro tried to find a replacement clock but wasn't able to find one. I returned the clock and amethyst housing and Astro refuses to refund me. They refuse to answer my phone calls and letters. They've actually resorted to obnoxious, childish tactics like keeping me on hold on purpose for half an hour. They even refused to respond to the Better Business Bureau. The clock was only $169.00, such a ridiculously small amount to a large business like Astro.

Racist jealous sales people giving effort to down to bottom this rock crystal tumbled stones shop and mocking tourists and big rocks of negative energy sucker already, mocking business sales woman and racist man are jealous with customers and they do not have any ethics if business. Seems its a place of new age witchcrafts seekers and chakra magic seekers with crystal tumbled stones and whole store with big rocks spreading negative energies which already sucked by the whole city. Waste of money. Even exchange is another harrasement.

I happened upon this place while strolling up 5th Avenue in NYC recently. The sign drew me in: "GEMS", as I'm a big crystal and rock fan. But I had no idea of what awaited me inside!
Gorgeous gigantic crystal geodes of every kind, a variety of huge unique crystals, as well as rare prehistoric petrified fossil shells. I've never seen such a variety of colors, shapes, sizes in crystals and fossils in one place! Plus everything is labeled with names and descriptions.
I still can't believe everything I saw in there!

My boyfriend and I stopped by to see some gem stones he needed and ended up spending an hour or so in there. Kara and John are fabulous and assisted us with every little question we had. We will certainly be back when we go to New York again, thanks!

As we were walking down 5th Avenue we couldn't help but stop and look in the window of this amazing store. Sadly it was closed but we made a point of stopping in the following morning. Unique, beautiful items were everywhere. We ended up purchasing a very unique wall hanging of Butterflies. You can find simple, inexpensive gifts or spend thousands - it's a store for everyone!

I am extremely shocked by the way you seem to make fun of the litigation that has been going on for the past three months.
I haven't received my order since December, and you refuse to reimburse me. I would like to remind everyone who will read my article that reimbursement (regardless of the country from which you buy) is an international rule that the seller must respect.

Given the high number of Internet users who are in the same situation as me, I invite as many people as possible to write to the Federal Trade Commission, the European Consumer Center or any other association linked to national consumer protection organizations.

Once again, your practices are shameful and customer service is deplorable. You block calls, and deliberately refuse to answer our emails or calls. You sell minerals at extremely high cost, be worthy of the products you claim to be able to deliver.

I wish you a good day, and may this message be passed on to your owner who does not wish to answer my requests. Do you know? The famous phone call where you shouted and hung up, it does a great job for a store of your prestige.
