High Country Gems & Minerals
Welcome to the most interesting, unusual, and friendly gift shop in this part of the world!
In operation for over 46 years, High Country Gems & Minerals is an iconic rock shop experience for people of all ages in Glenwood Springs, Colorado. It’s like stepping into a beautiful natural museum & most rocks are even touchable!
Stroll through time in the fossil collections. Find unusual gifts for loved ones. Try on jewelry–we have rings for every finger!
Do you rock hunt in Colorado? There are maps and books to help. Kids, bring your parents too! There is a little something for everyone!
Stop by and say hi! The store is full of items for the serious rock hound, fun stuff for kids, and is a great place to find jewelry or a memento of your trip if you are visiting the valley.
