Overview

Based in the little sea side town of Weymouth in Dorset, a stones throw away from the Jurassic Coast, we are a one stop shop for all fossils, ammonites, crystals/minerals, Shona sculptures, agate slices and dinosaur bones/fossils. Our range of fossils come from all over the world, as well as having fossils from the Jurassic Coast such as classic Lyme Regis fossils through to the in land fossil beds of Somerset. We also offer a very large range of beads, ranging from semi precious stones, pearls, crystal beads, shells and glass/plastic beads. We also sell tools to make jewellery, findings such as lobster clasps, beading wire, spacers, extension chains, elastic and so on. As well as pendants, charms and chains. The shop has a very varied selection of hand made jewellery that is made within the shop by it's staff. Customers have the option to design their own jewellery and make it themselves or have one of our members of staff make it for them. We are open 7 days a week from 10:00 - 5:30 and are open longer hours during the summer period.

Love the collection of the fossils, even though it is a small ish shop it’s great values for money if you want fossils or stones!

As a former geologist I am always interested to visit shops with rocks, minerals and fossils. This is a really nice one with an amazing collection, especially of fossils. Not surprising since the mecca for fossil hunting is further along the coast in Lyme Regis...More

A good place to view all types of fossils, gems and beads. Polished to make your own bracelets or necklaces with the many types of stones, crystals and gems plus various metal shapes.

Their stock is both extensive and quite fascinating. Having chosen a very fine (and rather huge) Orthoceras fossil from their excellent selection they were most helpful when it was too heavy to carry to my car! If you like rock shops make sure you get...More
