My teenager loved this shop and was fascinated with all the different rocks and gem stones. Visited 4 times and got some great bargains to build up her collection of semi precious stones.

I am a Reiki Master and I teach crystal healing and pendulum dowsing (using crystal pendulums). I always visit Gerry in Sandown to stock up as she carries a good variety of good quality stock and her prices are very competive. She is a very friendly and helpful lady. She is also very knowledgable about crystals and stones. She stocks crystals, books, crystal jewellery, ornaments, allsorts.
