Workshop where a variety of useful things are made from stones bearing fossils created in a prehistoric seabed. There are spectacular tables, for instance, but also a range of small items from soap dishes to cheese "boards." Prices range widely and include many small and beautiful things that would make excellent gifts to bring home.

The presentation is both entertaining and educational and well presented in English. The store has a wide variety of options and prices. It was a relief to feel that we could take our time and shop for good buys to take home.

You have to like fossils really a lot to want o get a granite counter top or a coffee table, etc with fossils all over the place. Then you have 100s of other options of stuff with little and big and small fossils. Wow.

Don't let the quantity of the same thing throw you because when you get it home it will be unique and remind you of Morocco. I love nature's art and their stuff falls into the very good category.

We were brought here as part of a packaged tour, and it is definitely worth the visit. They show you the process of cutting the stone and finding the fossils through polishing them and turning them into beautiful objects like table tops and plates and jewelry. They speak great English and the prices seemed reasonable.

We were brought here by our tour guide and it was a very interesting and informative experience. It's hard to believe that these beautiful objects are real and we bought items for ourselves as well as for gifts since they are so unique and wonderful conversations pieces. We enjoyed seeing how the raw slabs are turned into everything from plates... More

Due to this area being in a principal fossil area what can be seen and bought here is very extensive. An eye opener of quality fossils.

My wife found this place really fascinating . . . the idea that these are fossils of creatures that lived 300 plus million years ago and now they're made into beautiful objects. The staff gives you information on how the rocks are cut and demonstrates how they are polished. Very low-key in the sales room which is very welcomed.
