My son and I had visited a few other rock stores while visiting Sedona and they all were the same. Some nice rocks but limited selection and high tourist town prices. Jim & Ellen's Rock Shop was different. It had a very large selection but was sparsely decorated, you could tell you were in a shop run by educated shop... More

Okay selection. Only rock shop around. Owners weren't friendly or helpful. Went to purchase some local things and find out about local area and they were just not interested in helping, or even being cordial.

TONS of different types of rocks and gems, a fair selection of nice jewelry, and a fun selection of chotchkies, all at pretty reasonable prices. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Definitely worth you time to stop in and poke around!

Offers a huge selection of just about anything, including rare fossils, that has been dug from the earth. Prices are reasonable, and many items come with printed histories. A must-see place if you're in Old Cottonwood.

If you (or anyone in your family) loves rocks and gems this is the place for you. My husband and I meandered through Jim & Ellens for quite a while enjoying the unique rocks, minerals, crystals, gems and crafts. It was so much fun and in the end we walked out with several cool display pieces and one awesome memory!... More

If you read my stuff, then you know I'm about having fun on a cheap budget. Sedona is nice and a beautiful place, but if you want a bargin and selection, then the Cottonwood area is the place to go. The prices are way cheaper and it's a cool town, just a mother-in-law's throw (about 13 miles) from Sedona. A... More

Yes, Museum is a good description. Jim & Ellen were friendly & helpful ~ happy to be among their mega-collection of hundreds of varieties of rocks. So much to see in this huge space, all organized / labeled / arranged on shelves. A nice interesting stop on Main St. in Cottonwood.

I was turned onto this wonderful "gem" of a store by a friend, They have a HUGE selection of gems and minerals for all sorts of projects. They also have a great selection of finished jewelry. If your looking for a unique gift, I highly recommend stopping by.

My husband and I decided to stop in to look. It was really interesting. They have so many different rocks from all over the world. We were in there for over an hour. My husband even bought one to bring home.
