The best way for me to describe Gea’s is as a flowering rainforest filled with beautiful gems.
This small shop is not only home to succulents, bromeliads and other household plants, but to an overwhelmingly dazzling collection of jewels. Glass cases filled with glittering gems, minerals and crystals line the interior of the store.
The jewels are offered in every shape and size imaginable – from raw and unpolished, to cut and set into a necklace. It’s easy to lose track of time while ogling at the dizzying array of treasures, but take your time, the staff is extremely friendly and happy to answer any questions you may have. They also carry a book that details the miraculous healing powers of various stones and crystals in case you’re not sure what to buy.
They have various plants and dream catchers on display outside, which make the store a bit easier to spot.
If you are in need of something natural, beautiful and shiny and have a few extra moments to spare, this hidden gem is the place for you (pun intended).
