While in town visiting family we visited twice. Jim and his staff were extremely friendly. Panning for gems was amazing as we found many interesting (and different) rocks. Will definitely go back next time we're in town!

Stopped for a look and enjoyed the friendly service. Small rock shop with some fossils and jewelery. Also have an outside station if you want to try your hand at gold panning.

The kids had a blast looking for gems and rocks. They were so excited to find a sparkly treasure as they looked through their buckets. Such a nice little business and super friendly!

My 9 year old and I went here while staying in Pinehurst. The owners were so friendly and knowledgeable. They really went the extra mile to make sure my son had fun and learned interesting things about the gems. I would highly recommend!

I was visiting with 5 grandchildren and my adult children. We love gems and shiny rocks. The gem "panning" is so worth it!! Much better than the tourist traps. Beautiful jewelry, polished stones, very nice owner.

Over the last year, my sister has become something of a rockhound. A co-worker told her about Jim's, so we decided to go check it out. Upon entering, a kindly gentleman behind the counter got up to greet us. He started us off with a...More
