Purchased a piece of malachite polished. $185. Got home and found out the value was about $59.00! This cute little couple charged us about 3 to 5 times the actual highest retail price I could find. My jeweler said I was definitely taken. Buyer beware!!!

Okay selection. Only rock shop around. Owners weren't friendly or helpful. Went to purchase some local things and find out about local area and they were just not interested in helping, or even being cordial.

TONS of different types of rocks and gems, a fair selection of nice jewelry, and a fun selection of chotchkies, all at pretty reasonable prices. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Definitely worth you time to stop in and poke around!

Offers a huge selection of just about anything, including rare fossils, that has been dug from the earth. Prices are reasonable, and many items come with printed histories. A must-see place if you're in Old Cottonwood.

If you read my stuff, then you know I'm about having fun on a cheap budget. Sedona is nice and a beautiful place, but if you want a bargin and selection, then the Cottonwood area is the place to go. The prices are way cheaper...More
