We went here because it was free on Friday. It was a great surprise. The carvings and polishing of gemstones was so impressive! They were beautiful. It is well worth the trip to Elmhurst.

If you have any interest in rocks and minerals, this place is worth the trip. Small but jam-packed with gorgeous pieces and informative descriptions and displays.
