Welcome to Dave's Down to Earth Rock Shop online!
We'll process & ship out your order within 1 business day!
Due to the individuality of our products only a small percentage of our entire inventory is posted online. If you are looking for something and don't see it here, please contact us to inquire. Often, we are able to fill requests via email or over the phone.
The month of May is honored by the birthstone Emerald, a rare and valuable gemstone that is a variety of the mineral Beryl. Emeralds receive their beautiful green coloration from trace amounts of Chromium. Unlike diamonds, which are magnified 10x to grade their clarity, Emeralds are graded by the eye. If "by the eye" an emerald has no visible inclusions, it's considered flawless.
Most of our current online Emerald inventory is composed of natural emerald in its mineral or crystal form. Please click here to view those specimens. We also carry Emerald jewelry in our shop. Please email us if you would like to see something in particular. We can always provide photos.
As a family owned business for over 40 years in Evanston, Dave's Rock Shop has a great appreciation for our loyal long-time customers, as well as the continuing support of new patrons. We love the excitement of introducing rocks and fossils to a new generation of rockhounds. Our goal is to continue to provide our customers with the highest quality of service, product, and information. Many thanks to you all, and as Dave would say, "Happy Hunting!".

Our mission remains the same both in the shop and on online - to offer a wide variety of the most unique, high quality items at a fair price, and to educate our customers to the best of our ability about the items we sell. Stop by often, as we will frequently be updating and adding new things to the site and the shop!
Dave and friends.
