One of Calgary's Best-Kept Secrets
If you weren't looking for it, you would walk right past this shop a hundred times. Nestled in a basement on bustling 17th Avenue, Earth Gems is an extraordinary shop full of crystals, gemstones, minerals, new age books, jewelry, incense, and other unique and beautiful trinkets. The shop owners are knowledgeable and un-intrusive and the prices are the best I have found in the city. Each stone comes with a little sheet of paper that describes its properties and meanings in relation to spiritual healing. If you're into this kind of stuff, expect to spend at least an hour exploring this incredible store.
