Eight miles west of Cañon City on Highway 50 is the Gold Mine Rock Shop, a legendary shop frequented by rockhounds, jewelry makers, arrowhead hobbyists, fossil fans, and landscapers. Not only does it boast the largest selection of rocks in Colorado, but it is also considered the place to purchase rocks and gems of superior quality.
Whether you want to start collecting or are already an avid collector, the Gold Mine Rock Shop carries everything from semi-precious stones to minerals and gems. Stones include amethyst, colored quartz, sapphire, and more. While some are sold as they occur in nature and others are cut and polished, each stone in the shop comes with its own story and background.
The Gold Mine Rock Shop also carries fossils, arrowheads, and handcrafted Native American jewelry from all over the country. Are you a landscaper? Don’t forget to check out the unique varieties of rough “outside rocks” for your next yard or patio project—big chunks of rose quartz and other rocks you won’t find anywhere else!
