Come and See Us!
Located in Historic Downtown Spruce Pine, NC, the "MINERAL CITY", we have a vast selection of gemstones and
minerals, from rough stones that are found and dug by our "Rock Gal", to polished points from around the world. In our
store, you will find points, obelisks, clusters, balls, eggs, and jewelry from quality minerals and gemstones. We have
thousands of square feet of minerals, fossils, and flourescents.
Our "Rock Gal" has been a "rock hound" for many years, participating in the Tampa Bay Gem and Mineral Society, as well
as the Tampa Bay Fossil Club (Florida). The best part about our store is that our "Rock Gal" can go to a number
of gem mines in our area and dig to her heart's content! And she is our secret weapon to showing you where these
Rocks and Things is located at 114 Oak Avenue, in Historic Downtown Spruce Pine, North Carolina, just off SR 226 on Old
U.S. 19/Oak Avenue/Upper Street. Our building was built in 1940 and is on the National Register of Historic Buildings.
We have been in business for many years and are excited to finally have reached the goal of owning a storefront.
Taking our business to the web makes the process even more exciting. Rocks and Things has been exhibiting and selling
at Gem Shows since 1988 and Pow Wows since 1995. Our "Rock Gal" is a current member of the Tampa Bay Gem and Mineral Society
and the Tampa Bay Fossil Club
. The great number of mines in our area greatly influenced the decision to open the storefront in Spruce Pine, NC.
Rocks and Things is a member of the Spruce Pine Business Association, Mitchell County Chamber of Commerce, Yancey County
Chamber of Commerce and the McDowell County Chamber of Commerce.
