About Us

Our Business Philosophy

The objective of our business is to provide high quality products and reliable service for our customers. We hope you will enjoy visiting our web site and using our products as much as we enjoy providing them for you.

Come and See Us!
Located in Historic Downtown Spruce Pine, NC, the "MINERAL CITY", we have a vast selection of gemstones and minerals, from rough stones that are found and dug by our "Rock Gal", to polished points from around the world.  In our store, you will find points, obelisks, clusters, balls, eggs, and jewelry from quality minerals and gemstones.  We have thousands of square feet of minerals, fossils, and flourescents.
Our "Rock Gal" has been a "rock hound" for many years, participating in the Tampa Bay Gem and Mineral Society, as well as the Tampa Bay Fossil Club (Florida).  The best part about our store is that our "Rock Gal" can go to a number of gem mines in our area and dig to her heart's content!  And she is our secret weapon to showing you where these mines are!

Rocks and Things is located at 114 Oak Avenue, in Historic Downtown Spruce Pine, North Carolina, just off SR 226 on Old U.S. 19/Oak Avenue/Upper Street.  Our building was built in 1940 and is on the National Register of Historic Buildings.

Our Company

We have been in business for many years and are excited to finally have reached the goal of owning a storefront.  Taking our business to the web makes the process even more exciting.  Rocks and Things has been exhibiting and selling at Gem Shows since 1988 and Pow Wows since 1995.  Our "Rock Gal" is a current member of the Tampa  Bay Gem and Mineral Society and the Tampa Bay Fossil Club.  The great number of mines in our area greatly influenced the decision to open the storefront in Spruce Pine, NC.
Rocks and Things is a member of the Spruce Pine Business Association, Mitchell County Chamber of Commerce, Yancey County Chamber of Commerce and the McDowell County Chamber of Commerce.
