Our Story

Who we are

Welcome to Kelowna Rocks & Gems. What started as a hobby for a father and daughter duo has expanded into a small family-run business operated in beautiful Kelowna, BC. We are so excited to share our passion for rocks and lapidary work through our business. We have always had an interest in rocks, but it really grew when we joined the local rock club. Several years later, we opened our own shop and are now proud to offer rocks, minerals and specimens, and other beautiful products made with stones from all over the world. We are fortunate enough to be able to travel to large rock and gem shows and purchase high quality, amazing minerals. If you don’t see what you’re looking for on our website, please contact us and we’ll be happy to help!

We hope to earn your business through excellent customer service, attention to detail, and amazing products. Being a smaller, family-run business means we can provide a personalized touch. 

What we offer

We are happy to offer a large variety of rocks, crystals, minerals, and fossils at many different price points. We would like to think we have something for everyone!

We are able to support other lapidary artists by selling rough by the piece, rock tumbling supplies, and slabs. Please contact us if you have any questions about our rough and slab selection.

We dabble in silversmithing. Our unique jewelry pieces include all types of stones – each piece is one-of-a-kind as no two stones are the same, and every piece is handcrafted. At this time, all of our pieces are made with .925 sterling silver.

Our retail store has many more products than what can be listed on our website. For a comprehensive list of our products, please click the button below.


Kelowna Rocks & Gems also builds and restores lapidary equipment. If you are interested in lapidary work, please contact us as we may have equipment available. We also offer restoration services for lapidary saws, cabbing machines, flat laps, and anything else you may need cleaned and serviced. 

We are always looking to buy used, old, and/or broken lapidary equipment. Please contact us if you have any lapidary supplies that you are interested in selling.

We are also official Lortone distributors. We carry 4 different models, as well as tumbler parts and supplies. For more information on Lortone and rock tumblers, click here.
