This place is full of really interesting pieces, not just rocks. I could've spent much more time there. Also visited their location in Bar Harbor, which is great also. If I'm in Bangor again, I'll definitely be there.

Really large selection of rocks and crystals and all sorts of related things. I found family gifts galore. And the shipping was painless.

Loved the selection of geodes. We couldn't help ourselves to the tiny air plants on display in unique ways. A must visit when you are in Bangor driving past Stephen King's house.

This store is a bit like a natural history museum with a small bit of anthropology thrown in as well! Fun. Some pricing was rather high, though.
