Why "GemLand"?
Well, Arizona is America's leading gem mining state, and we got our start in the gemstone business.
But now, we offer much more, too!  You could say "gems in the sky", "gems of places", even "gems of wisdom" -- you decide.  Whatever the case, there is something inside GemLand for you.
Gemstones are rocks, and rocks
are our love and our specialty.  There are over 300 pages on our website for you to explore.

Send this page for FREE as an E-Postcard to your friends!

   In addition to our nature programs, we feature natural, American, colored gemstones, including Arizona Peridot, Four Peaks Amethyst, Arizona Garnets, and Turquoise from the Southwest.
