Astro West Fine Minerals, Fossils, and Meteorites
Astro West is the to-go place in NYC for fine minerals, crystals, meteorites, fossils, and all other fascinating natural wonders, offering a large selection of beautiful and naturally occuring precious stones, gorgeous butterflies in frames, dinosaur teeth, and stunning crystalized meteorites—all real and for sale. The shop even has a Triceratops horn that is 65 million years old.
Stop by to crack your own geode in the "Geode Cracker". You get to pick out your own rock, and, with the help of a staff member, you crack it on the spot with the push of a button, revealing the gorgeous sparkly crystals within. The geode is yours to take home.
The staff is very knowledgeable and always happy to give you an informative and entertaining tour of the gallery.
Promotions and sales run on a regular basis, so always check back to see what's going on. Due to COVID-19, it is recommended that you call before you come in to crack a geode on the weekends with a large group or birthday party.
