“I wanna ROCK!”

This deserves a special stop when you visit the Redwood Highway. Chapman's is a true piece of local history with a stellar collection of gems, minerals, and fossils for sale. Add to that a great museum and fascinating gallery of gem and mineral artwork and you have a place that deserves a chunk of your time when visiting the Redwoods. Prices range from $1000 down to $1 -- so nobody in your family will leave empty handed. Lapidary equipment is also for sale for die-hard rockhounds.

A very cool rock and gem store with everything from fossils to cut stones! Reasonable prices and super friendly staff! They had large chunks of "fools gold" for $2 that would thrill kids, to really nice gemstones. Also had neat "museum area" with interesting geological stuff.

It was entertaining enough for a nice little stop but not a lot to look at
