Welcome to Maggie Valley Rock Shop & Gem Mine and our new website! Here your whole family will enjoy finding crystals, minerals, fossils, geodes, and all kinds of jewelry! We carry local specimens as well as pieces from all around the world!
Patty & Pete have been on the road collecting, buying, selling, and trading for about 10 years and have now decided to make Maggie Valley their home and to operate the gem mine & rock shop!
We are lucky to have the coolest hobby and our number one goal is for everyone (ESPECIALLY KIDS!) to experience and enjoy our hobby!
We want you all to leave our shop and gem mine happy! Our mine dirt has a combination of native stones and gems as well as gems and minerals from around the world. It’s possible you may find rubies, sapphires, emeralds, garnets and other semi- precious and precious gems. If you’re lucky you may find all of these and much more! One thing is for sure, you will find lots of cool rocks!!
Our Rock Shop is world class and has everything from inexpensive crystals and minerals to museum quality specimens and fossils! We have an ever-growing selection of jewelry and our collection constantly changes! Our original company, Blue Earth Traders, has always specialized in Himalayan Salt lamps and you will find fantastic prices on these, along with an array of Himalayan Salt products!
We will be constantly adding to our website and our online shopping, so check back often!
So come try your luck at our gem mine and check out our Rock Shop! Oh, and if you see a cute, furry critter around, his name is Pico. He is head of operations and responds well to petting!
