Truly fantastic store with great people. I leave a trail of drool every time I walk through either location. So many pretty things. My favorite place is the set of slab drawers. I could spend hours go...ing through there picking out all my favorites to cab or polish. See More

I have always loved Burnie's Rock Shop on Johnson St. but when the Park Street location opened I fell in love with it all over again. When I walk in I instantly feel more grounded and calm. They real...ly go the extra mile to give the best customer service possible. Today Reena helped me find the perfect item for a gift. She even wrapped it for me! See More

The minute my husband and I walked in the store we were greeted and helped immediately! Phoebe helped my husband find the perfect ring for me and she helped us pick out his ring as well! She was easy ...to talk to, very helpful, learned a lot while choosing our rings, and fun to be around in the process! We got both of our rings within a month and we both are IN LOVE with them! If you go in, ask for Phoebe! Thanks Burnies Rock Shop! See More

Upon a first time trip to Madison, Wisconsin, I had the priviledge of visiting the high crystal energy and thoughtfully manned shop on E. Johnson. My praise is given to the sacred diversity of offeri...ngs, dedication to excellence as well as the butterflies and fossils which were both beautiful and ancient teachings about life.

The gentleman at the desk, Anthony, was warm, welcoming, patient with me and interested in the spirituality of the crystals I was considering. I appreciate his gentlemanly intelligence, guidance and manners more than I can express here, but highly recommend Burnie's for those believing in the power of crystals and the beauty of living spiritually.

Thank you for making my visit so magical and enchanting.

Sincerely,
Parisianne Modert, San Diego, California

Keep in mind this was not a typical visit to Burnie's, but an actual "field trip " through my local rock club. The opportunity to visit the "basement " in the dead of winter for the very first time w...as a treat of a lifetime. Felt like a kid in a candy store . . .minus the calories! Awesome experience . . .only thing that could have made it better was Burnie himself. He never forgets a rock! Or his son Neville, but he was on a shopping trip of his own. Definitely 5* See More

Love this store. Used it to get gemstones to bring positive energy and good vibes into my wedding theme for my wedding next year and will continue to visit for gemstones for my bridesmaid flowers and gifts.

I love it and I loved the price even more!! I can spend all day there I also have had a ring made for my mom at the Johnson st location. I plan to take a few gemstones in to have a ring made for myself. See More

I love this place! So much variety, gorgeous rocks and gems, jewellery, and meteorites! I got a giant, onyx six-sided die that is the envy of our gaming group.

Burnie's has a great selection between the two locations and the staff is always very knowledgeable and friendly! I enjoy stones for their metaphysical properties and if I can't find what I'm looking ...for they are happy to suggest something similar based on my needs. Always a pleasure. See More

Just had my Great Grandmother's engagement ring fixed. They were wonderful to work with, went above and beyond to get it fixed, and at a very good price. I could not be more pleased.

My favorite rock shop ever, my favorite place in all of Wisconsin. Great prices, huge selection of rough and tumbled samples. I wish I could just live here.
