Questions for Rock Shop Clerks

A lapidary is someone who collects and deals in stones. These professionals may have their own rock shops or they may have a private collection. Others have websites where they display and sell their gem stones, such as tourmaline, crystal, garnet, and topaz. If you like to collect rocks of all types, you’ll have fun browsing in a rock shop. Here, you’ll find cases upon cases of common and rare gem collections, perhaps even some fossils and volcanic rock. You may like the coloring of some rocks, such as rose or turquoise, or maybe you prefer the interesting qualities of geodes. Whatever the case, finding a reputable rock shop that sells the minerals you want at a fair price is half the battle.

  • Do you buy your rocks and minerals from a local quarry?
    Rock shops usually deal with one supplier, which may be a local quarry or they may have them shipped in from around the country. Where they get their rocks may determine price and quality, so be sure to ask this question.

  • Do you guarantee the quality of your rocks?
    Any rock dealer worth his salt will provide a certificate of authenticity to serious collectors. Lapidaries should stand behind their products with quality guarantees.

  • What sorts of rocks do you have in your collection?
    Rock shops should sell a wide variety of rocks, from crystals to citrine to agate. Some dealers specialize in a specific type, such as hard-to-find items like fluorite pyramids.

  • Do you sell the products necessary to care for my stones?
    Rock shops should sell maintenance and cleaning items such as polish so that you can keep your stones bright and appealing.

    Most rock shops are retail outlets. Others are dealers that sell gems, minerals, and lapidary supplies.

    Sales staff must be familiar with different types of gems and crystals. They may also need to know their symbolic significance. Although some customers may come in with an idea as to exactly what they want, staff may be asked for advice. Loose stones are generally placed out in boxes. Most of the rocks sold are of low intrinsic value. They include quartz and rose quartz crystals and common rocks such as calcite and citrine. Amethyst is also fairly common, and popular in collections.

    More valuable stones such as tourmaline and topaz may be kept in a secure area. Shops may also sell simple jewelry, although are they are seldom made with precious gems such as diamond. Beads made of certain stones are also popular, especially garnet beads. Many rocks come in different colors. Agate is often striated in many shades.

    Some stones are sold in their polished form. Shops also sell geodes, which can be broken to reveal crystals within. Fossils are also popular additions to rock collections. Workers need to be able to identify them. Workers need to know which minerals are sedimentary and which are volcanic.

    Workers may also be asked the provenance of rocks. In some cases, which quarry stones come from is known. In other cases, the stones may come from collectors, or from locations such as beaches. An older, disused quarry may be a popular destination for rock hounds after it has been worked out.

    Managers sort stones by size and shape and price them. They work with quarries and collectors to obtain stock. Rock shops are generally physical, online vendors also exist. Their continuing popularity is fueled by the attraction to the stones for use as decoration.
