All visitors are invited to purchase items from our gift shop and book store, located inside the Museum. Members of the CSMMMA receive a 10% discount on purchases.
The gift shop has numerous mineral specimens and jewelry items for sale, at prices affordable for all ages. We carry educational books on topics such as geology, mining history, rocks and minerals, finding gold, and, of course, children books. We stock a variety of laminated posters of rocks and minerals, fossils, and gemstones.
A key item for understanding California Geology is having detailed maps. Pertaining to our area, that includes maps of the Yosemite Region.
We have products from local artists who provide the museum shop with beautiful jewelry, including spectacular and rare benitoite earrings and pendents (benitoite is the California’s State Gem).
We offer lots of tumbled and rough rocks, raw specimens of collectable minerals, including California mined benitoite and neptunite, California gold, a local favorite – mariposite, and geodes from a variety of locales.
Customers will find fossils such as ammonites, trilobites, and amber, to name a few. We are proud to offer fluorescent minerals and long-wave flashlights to see fluorescent reactions. Local crystals clusters are available at reasonable prices.
We offer a variety of California themed tee shirts, hats and tote bags. We stock DVD’s about the California gold rush and mining techniques.
Talk to us about panning for gold. We sell pay dirt which will have gold in it, so you can take your gold home with you. What gold country store is complete without gold pans for sale? Many more treasures are available for everyone in the family.
