I loved every minute of my visit to this shop. The man serving was so warm and welcoming and I felt totally at ease and not rushed as I had a good browse around.
I brought a stunning crystal necklace with modavite and tourmalated quartz which is so unique and unlike anything I have seen before, even in my own shop (I work in a new age shop)
I'm sure I will be paying another visit here before my holiday is over to get some treasures

Fantastic and friendly service, efficient and helpful.

I have used this establishment several times over the last few years and have always found something unique and beautiful to purchase. I always make the effort to pop in when I'm on the island. The jewellery is varied and has something to suit anyone and is a must for pressi buying.

Absolute value - the best I have found on the island and good quality gem stones. It may be a small shop but Kaleidoscope is gigantic in all other ways possible.

It's worth a look even if you are not wanting to buy jewellary/gems/fossils - I'm sure you will leave with a purchase!

I found this shop through TA reviews, I was pleasantly surprised when I went in, myself and mam was greeted by a friendly man who I think owned the store. The prices and variety of stones and crystals available was amazing and the man was so helpful in finding out information on things I was interested in. He had cartons of info cards on everything and was mare than happy to go through them with me. So so helpful! the prices on the crystals was very reasonable and affordable. I left very happy and wish I could have spent more!!

Found this shop on the way to the beach, dragged in by my children, I must say I was taken aback by the selection of different jewellery, crystals and fossils that were on offer. As the shop looks quite small from the outside it is quite an illusion inside. The children were able to use pocket money on what they wanted to buy, as prices were reasonable...... actually quite cheap compared to the local stone shops where we live......also purchased myself a fossil. Would like to thank the lady, who was quite helpful and pleasant. Would suggest anyone visiting Sandown to pop in.
