A gem in the little town of Cromer. Always a purchase made when I visit. I have been going there for years. I can't go to Cromer and not go in. Have bought many special pieces in there, my daughters prom jewels and first gift to my man. Gayle is a legend and always welcomes people.

For over 15 years I have used this shop. Today 20/09/16, I went in to purchase numerous items and was disgusted with the lack of respect and civillity shown towards me. Don't judge a book by its cover! I had to wait ages as the assistant was busy chatting to another customer. I tried to kindly interrupt with a question... More

Worth visiting if you are remotely interested in rocks and gems. A very well stocked shop with a expert and enthusiastic proprietor who knows the origins of everything on sale. In addition to normal priced items there are lower priced buckets etc

What a treasure of a shop with wonderful crystals and great variety. Friendly staff who are very knowledgable indeed and who travel abroad to source the perfect crystals. I was searching for a particular type of crystal cave and Danny, the owner, very kindly took me to his warehouse where I found just what I wanted. Whether you want to... More

We visited the Little Gems Rock Shop in Cromer, Norfolk a couple of times in recent years. Fantastic place with a huge range of rock, fossils and gemstones, extremely helpful, knowledgeable and pleasant staff - nothing was too much trouble. We will definitely be visiting again whenever we're visiting Cromer.

What a unique shop. We were completely fascinated. Found a pendant for my wife, a fossilised Dino Tooth for my Dinosaur obsessed Son, and a highly decorative and polished fossil of sea shells. The lady running the shop was lovely, so helpful and welcoming.

I wanted to visit the shop because as a new nearly qualified counsellor, I wanted some tactile stones for my counselling room. The lady serving was warmly welcoming, but gave me space to make my selection on my own. She was able to tell me the names of the stones and crystals and kindly labelled them for me. As I... More

We had been to Little Gems many years ago whilst on holiday and decided to return during a trip around favourite 'haunts' in Norfolk. The lady behind the counter was welcoming and good humoured and the range of stock was excellent; there was a good range for everyone's budget from tumble stones through to the more elaborate carved gemstones etc....

We had a happy time buying some rocks while my husband and son played who could say the word 'bogey' loudest! The lovely shop keeper was so kind, fun and life affirming. Do call in, I only browsed on my first call in and was made very welcome.
