This is my favorite place to be! A wonderful selection of crystals, rocks, gemstones, fossils, even books & so much more. It lights me up knowing a place like this exists. I have gotten mostly all of my beautiful crystals & stones from past & present. Thank you!!"

Lots of great fossils and paleontological related items to purchase and look at, including dinosaur bones and casts that rival the Buffalo Museum of Science. Definitely stop in here.

Best rock/fossil shop in WNY. Great science toys, books, fossils, rocks, artifacts, and a free museum that rivals most public museums. Don't miss it!
