Dave's Down to Earth Rock Shop reviews
Dave's has been around for awhile; I first visited before my oldest was born, now I take her kids there. Just a great place, full of wonderful finds at all price levels. My grandsons have bought many.... more »
This shop and basement museum has long been a favorite of myself and my grandchildren. Lots to see and to spark interest in both adults and children. more »
So blessed to have such an excellent gem and mineral shop in our community! They always have high quality items and they have information about the origin of their products readily available. The prices are really reasonable as well. Since crystals have become more popular, many places have started charging exorbitant prices, but Dave's hasn't followed this trend. This keeps rock collecting accessible for everyone, which I totally respect. The staff is really nice and helpful. They take the time to package your items nicely and will include information cards if you request it. They also have an excellent free fossil museum in the basement. You can easily spend a couple of hours here and I frequently do. I can't say enough good things about Dave's. If you love crystals, fossils and gemstones, you really need to visit Dave's immediately!
the stones you buy from Dave's Rock shop are high quality and low cost. It's one of my favorite places to go but I tend to end up buying so much that I didn't mean to purchase. That's usually because they have the books you can use for free that help you navigate to selection and a knowledgeable staff that offers support. Best part is alllllll the stones you get to choose from. I think that there are lot of imitation places out there selling expensive (yet fake) stones but this isn't one. I highly recommend them.
