The Estes Park area of Colorado has its share of natural wonders and opportunities for admiring the beauty of nature. The rocky terrain offers a plethora of opportunities for hiking, bouldering, and climbing. Those interested in learning more about the geology of the area and observing rocks from around the world may find some intrigue in the rock collections and products found in the Red Rose Rock Shop in Estes Park and Dick’s Rock Museum.
Begun in the 1960’s by Dick Siebenaler, a geologist and lapidary enthusiast, the Red Rose Rock Shop is a historic landmark in Estes Park. The museum houses gems and minerals collected from all over the world by the Siebenaler family, including agates, petrified woods, exotic minerals, butterfly geodes, coprolites (fossilized dinosaur dung), jewelry, and displays that depict how rocks look through the different stages of being cut and polished. While entrance to the museum is complimentary, a store is attached to the museum offering an array of unique items for purchase. Rocks, minerals, fossils, jewelry, gifts, and décor are all available at Red Rose Rock Shop, offering an opportunity to choose an interesting item for yourself or for a gift. Collectors, in particular, will find interest in the items on offer. Check out the Red Rose Rock Shop in Estes Park on Facebook or on their eBay store, Yeller’s Barn, for a preview of some of the items they have for sale.
