Taos Rockers Rock Shop

Taos Rockers Rock Shop

Taos rockers is not your typical ma & pa rock shop. The major emphasis at Taos Rockers is on mineral and fossil specimens. An international collection is displayed in three showrooms including many museum-grade specimens representing every continent except Antarctica. Every item is labeled and described as accurately as possible. There is a separate section of minerals of New Mexico(our area of specialization).

Taos Rockers also stocks decorative items, stoneware, mineral & fossil related jewelry, cabochons & faceted gemstones, books, and some geological equipment, however, the major emphasis is on minerals & fossils.

Our staff consists of two geologists and a metaphysical consultant.

The retail outlet is open 9-6.

We are located one block off the Plaza in the Taos Historic District with convenient on-site parking at 229 Camino de la Placita.

Taos Rockers mineral of the month is a family of minerals collectively known as Zeolites!!

Zeolite is a group name for a large number of microporous framework alumosilicates which are built of corner-linked tetrahedra and contain

Over 232 unique zeolite frameworks have been identified with over 45 occuring naturally. Zeolites are produced industrially on a large scale for such applications as commercial adsorbents and catalysts, water purificatiion, separation of gases and molecules, on-board oxygen generating systems, solar thermal collectors, and non-clumping cat litter.
The largest single use is the global laundry detergent market. Natural zeolites form where volcanic rocks and ash layers react with alkaline groundwater or in shallow marine basins (over periods of thousands to millions of years). Thomsonite has been collected as a gemstone from a series of basalt lava flows along Lake Superior in Minnesota.

Analcime Na(AlSi2O6) • H2O
