As a family owned and operated business we have been a supplier of rocks, minerals, fossils, crystals, faceted stones, cabochons, beads, and jewelry since 1961! Started on the family farm, James expanded to the building we are in now in 1981. The shop has changed and grown over the years to the now 8,000 square feet of showrooms.
At our store you can find everything from tumbled stones, carvings, and jewelry, to collector minerals and fossils. Small to large pieces to decorate your home, office, studio, or business. If you are interested in the metaphysical aspect of the crystals we have a wide variety as well.

Rounding out our tour, we estimate arriving at the National Centre for Padre Pio in Barto, PA at 12:00pm

In 1966, the Calandra family listened to Padre Pio’s call—and it changed the course of their lives forever. Their faith-filled journeyed to San Giovanni Rotondo, Italy sparked a deep devotion for Padre Pio that would extend far beyond the boundaries of their own family; today, it brings peace and healing to souls across the United States who visit the National Centre for Padre Pio.
