I didn't find much I could afford here but the items for sale and on display were truly Museum quality. They had huge pieces in the lobby and some amazing one of a kind pieces, including a great meteorite collection.

Check out this amazing collection of rocks, minerals, gems and fossils. They've even got butterflies and insects sprinkled in. You can find most everything, and the prices range from just a few to thousands of dollars. AND they love window shoppers!
