I started coming to the valley when I was 5 years old. The rock shop, known as Lorraine's at this time, was always a place of wonder. What child do you know that isn't in awe when they are surrounded by nature's beauty under one roof. Where you can play with the tumbled stones and be amazed by the crystals and the geodes.
When I turned 18, I got the pleasure of working here. At this time the ownership had changed and the Rock Shop gained the name of Lone Pine Rock's and Gifts. What an amazing experience. I started picking up books and just absorbing all the information I could about the minerals that we carried.
We have people from all over the world come to see us. But the comment I hear the most has been "I used to come here as a child!" This little rock shop has become an iconic part of Lone Pine's history for so many generations.
Come in and be part of this Lone Pine experience!
