“Totally Rocks!”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

I'm a native of the four corners region and grew up rockhounding and scanning the ground on every hike. This shop has knowledgeable staff that is friendly and helpful. While there I spoke to Mr. Ottinger's grandson for a bit about where I might find something new and interesting to add to my finds and he offered to have a look at some curious pieces I just haven't been able to determine what they are. Everything about this shop is a delight and I will be going back for great gifts, guides and info.

“Lots of fun to browse”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

Loved browsing the large collection of local rocks and fossils! Many small items are inexpensive and make great souvenirs. Super friendly lady at the counter has lots of fossil hunting stories and is fun to talk to. Stop by if you can!

“Great selection of cheap, and expensive rocks, fossils, etc.”
Reviewed May 11, 2012

Great shop, just on the main road in Moab Utah. Store associate said - "Part museum, part store" and I couldnt agree more. Has spectacular finds of old fossils, and great rocks at good prices. Very much worth the time to pull off.

“Fun place for families to learn about rocks”
Reviewed March 13, 2012

This is a great place to learn about fossils, minerals and other interesting and educational items. They give away a piece of free fossilized dinosaur bone and have some dinosaur skeketons just like in a museum. Finding the place is easy and should be included on any trip through the Moab area.
