A senseless act of cruelty and careless disrespect for life. This was our impression of Gemstar Gemstone Co. My husband and I travelled 2 hours to visit this place on our 7th wedding anniversary. We had decided to gift each other a large amethyst cathedral to put in our entrance hall. We found the one we wanted outside.

We wandered around for a bit, and came across a very large spider trapped in a deep plastic bucket full of polished stone. I remarked upon it's size and said out loud "what should we do?" I was talking to my husband, but a slovenly dressed man wearing glasses approached and said " You step on it!" I ignored him. He seemed to think it was a funny thing to say as he looked in the bucket and wandered off. My husband found a long piece of rock and left it in the bucket for the spider to use to crawl out later. It was shy and trying to conceal itself.

We then went inside the shop. It reeked of cigarette smoke and I was extremely disappointed to see the slovenly man behind the counter. My feelings for the place instantly shifted. The other 2 people working there (one of which was a female) neither greeted us or smiled. We picked out a few little trinkets for friends inside the shop and left them in a basket while we went back outside to get our cathedral.

On the way we checked on the spider, the shop assistant followed us and asked if it was still in the bucket, we said yes. But before we knew what was happening he picked up the long rock my husband had put in the bucket and slammed it down on the spider, killing it (or worse, maiming it). He put the lid on the bucket, sneered at us and walked off, he knew perfectly well he had shocked us both terribly.

Sickened. My husband and I simply walked back to the car and drove away. We were so disturbed by this disgusting display of senseless killing. I'm not even fond of spiders! But it wasn't harming anyone, it was outside and it was helpless. The experience ruined our special day. We will tell everyone we know to stay away from these IDIOTS at Gemstar Gemstone Co. and I will write this up as a post on our website.

We drove 3 hours to this store in utter excitement, only to be greeted by the rudest people. They had 5mins till they closed, which is our fault, but we were told they were open till 7pm, apparently it's 5pm. We asked the woman if we picked out our stones in 5 mins BEFORE they close if they would serve us. She told us to get lost and had a grin on her face, she got such a kick out of denying us service, THEN proceeded to tell another woman in the store that she had 5 mins to pick out and buy what she wanted.

DO NOT BUY STONES FROM THESE NEGATIVE PEOPLE!! They clearly install bad energy into all there stones, and it's not worth the amount of cleansing you would have to do to rejuvenate them.

Being in an energetic business, you would think they would practice love and light, but hardly any of the crystals shine on this property. I wasn't really drawn to anything in particular, but now I know it is because the universe would never want me to use one of their stones in my healing practice.

Loved this place. I teach metaphysical classes and one of my students introduced me to it when I was talking about the benefits about Selenite. I was astounded at the product available and the prices. I took bunch of cards and have been handing it out to my students eversince! Thank you Gemstar!!!

In response to both of the bad reviews:
First call ahead and find the hours of any business, do not expect them to stay open just for you. I drove two hours as well and actually called so I did not waste a trip.
Second, if you wanted to save the spider, move it yourself. I have been there many times and it never reeked of smoke, the owners were very helpful. I am sorry you both had a bad experience, but really now. be respectful of a businesses time and if you are so keen on life saving then you should have saved the spider yourself. Most customers would not have wanted to put their hand into a bucket with a spider.

Had the opportunity to visit this amazing business this fall. Very rural location but wonderful selection and prices. I only wish i bought more while I was there. Since I live in SC I only get to NE every couple of years but Gemstar will be first on list and the remainder of the trip around it!

Gemstar is off the beaten path. I got lost the first time I went there because it is on a VERY rural road set back from the main street. It is worth the drive though. They import and wholesale gems and beads, and offer these great prices to the public in their store. They are knowlegeable about the products both in terms of geology and metaphysical properties and are very willing to share their knowledge.
