Great place to shop for stones, from petrified wood to almost any rock or mineral. I have been collecting since I was little and always keep coming back to this place. The manager Dana and Dasha are always very helpful. Highly recommend!

I've always loved this place for the brilliant collection of gems & minerals from around the world. There's lot of historical information dating back to the early days of California as well, make sure to spend enough time in this excellent shop.
