This mineral shop has of course many local and international mineral specimens and jewelry from amythyst, tourmaline and lapis to name a few but also a nice colection of books and other gifts for sale as well as some displays of mining for gems and an interesting display of florescent minerals.

What to pay: prices are competitive to lower than average on a number of items.
