We started the business as a hobby in 1995, selling fossils, minerals and jewellery at car boots, then progressing to fairs and markets as we learned our trade. We ended up exhibiting at the Rock n Gem Shows for several years.
In 2004, the opportunity of a shop in Lyme Regis came up, so we took the plunge and moved to Dorset.
We opened our online shop in May 2011 and, by promotion through our Lyme Regis shop and on Facebook, this has been a great success. We now ship to customers as far afield as the USA and Australia.
In March 2013 we sold our Lyme Regis shop business and are now trading solely online and at shows and fairs in the region.
Here is a photo of the shop we used to have in Drakes Way.
The business is now owned by Paul and Tina, who have renamed it 'Jurassic Gems'.
