Fascinating shop, the petrified wood is my favorite. Lots of beautiful fossils and gem stones. The proprietor gave us a good deal on shark teeth for our grandchildren.

Great place if you are into dinosaurs or fossils. They even have an indoor trestle stream for kids to "pan" a bag of gemstones from a burlap bag you buy. Related puzzles and toys for sale. Great place to browse on a rainy day.
