It is a great place and I would recommend to anybody whether or not you are knowledgeable about minerals. Everybody there was kind and helpful. A variety of rocks, minerals, and geodes. Overall a great experience.

Assuming that this is the Tucson Gem and Mineral Show. There are 62 separate locations though out the city. I don’t get the tons and tons of rocks but I guess some people do. The KINO Sports Center has many, many diverse exhibitors.

This is by far one of the best rock, fossil, and mineral shops in the entire land! It is shockingly awesome and I loved looking around at their huge selection. It also had excellent prices on the many treasures they have for sale.

From the looks of the guys running the quaint shop you would have thought that they were dug up with the merchandise: craggled and weather worn. But looks are deceiving. The owner is entertaining, friendly, and blessed with a kid soul. My 6 yr old...More

Looking for rocks? Minerals? Really cool artifacts and gifts? Tucson Mineral and Gem World has it all. For all you rock, mineral and fossil collectors, now they carry PaleoBOND!!! Seriously. If you leave here without buying something, there's something wrong with you!
