Description

gem-rock-logo-side-box.jpgThe Gem Rock is the leading independent museum of its kind in the UK and is renowned worldwide. Owned and run by the Stephenson family it is regarded as one of the finest private collections of gemstones, crystals, minerals, rocks and fossils in Great Britain. Crystals and minerals are some of natures most outstanding creations and the collection demonstrates this with many fine specimens of world class standard on display.

The Museum is however, more than just a static display, it is a fully interactive experience with lots of things to do as well as to see. Tim Stephenson is a Fellow of the Gemmologists Association of Great Britain and along with his colleagues is normally around to offer advice and to answer any questions you might have on this fascinating subject. Whether you are in a large or small party, you will find your visit fun, relaxing and a thought provoking experience.   

For the more serious visitor there is an opportunity to research your interest further. The Gem Rock began through a family interest and has evolved over 20 years through a continuous policy of improvement and development to provide... ...an experience you'll treasure forever.

Our tea room is open 7 days a week and offers a wide variety of home made food. It is not necessary to purchase a museum ticket to use the tea room - we are open to all. We are mountain biker and walker friendly (handy railings on view for tethering bikes and pets!), so if you are out for a day on the 7stanes or walking the Balloch Wood trails, please drop in.
