This is a great store to find a unique gift for someone special, or even yourself. The staff are always friendly and can assist with any question. If you want to find fossils, gems, unique mineral gifts, come to see this store.

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!
