It’s time to find your next treasure. Are you ready?

Bryson’s Rock Shop is one of Weber County’s favorite shopping destinations. And once you’ve been there, you can understand why. For 38 years, Bryson’s has been a source of jewelry, art, and minerals of all kinds. One happy shopper said, “It’s fun to take kids to the rock shop. All the minerals are like candy to them.” Although the rocks do have an undeniable appeal, please don’t eat them.

Are you looking for beautiful gemstone jewelry? How about crystals, spheres, pendulums, stone carvings, or singing bowls? Do you want to look through all the different kinds of minerals and see which ones speak to you? It must be time to head to Bryson’s!

Several factors contribute to the universal appeal of this shop. Their inventory is gigantic. You could browse for hours and not see everything. Bryson’s also has an enormous range of price points, everything from small items less than a dollar, up to breathtaking collector’s pieces. So, no matter what your budget, you’re guaranteed to find something in your price range.

Owner Dave Wonderly and his team have a great time working with their customers. Dave loves to travel and discover new treasures to stock the store. He just returned from Tucson with a collection of rare, fragile, dioptase crystals, revered for their healing influence. Many minerals and crystals are prized for their metaphysical properties, and you will find a wide range to choose from, as well as books with related information.

“I just can’t come to Ogden without visiting Bryson’s. This shop is like a magic purse. It’s bigger on the inside than it looks on the outside.”

Recently, Dave brought back megalodon teeth and fossilized sperm whale teeth. They are fascinating, and you’ll definitely want to check them out. Bryson’s works with suppliers that acquire unique inventory from all around the world.

If you want to get into Rock Hounding, Bryson’s team has tools, reference books, and are very knowledgeable.

The rock shop has many dedicated fans. As I had a chance to talk to them during my visit, one said, “I just can’t come to Ogden without visiting Bryson’s. This shop is like a magic purse. It’s bigger on the inside than it looks on the outside.”

Come and see for yourself. I love discovering new minerals! Each one has its own color and personality. What’s your favorite?
