Why Choose Us?


We ship exactly what you see.  No surprises. You'll receive that item--special markings, colors, quirks and all.  Each item is handpicked for quality and value. Natural stones are sometimes irradiated, heated, or treated to bring out natural colors and markings. If we know a stone to be dyed or lab-created, we disclose it as such. Size (and weight if needed) are clearly marked if a full-frame photo could be misleading. 

Selection—You can easily search for your favorite stones and crystals (popular gemstone names are listed under "More").  Since each item is unique, selection changes daily. There are items in all price ranges, from $10 to $500. 

Secure "sign-in by link" shopping—Our online store is powered by the latest no-password-required technology. When you enter your email, we'll send you a link that you click on to automatically log in.

Free shipping—Orders over $25 ship free (otherwise $5.99) anywhere in the U.S. Orders are shipped out the next business day. Expedited delivery is available for $30. "Locals" are welcome to purchase online (any amount) for free in-store pick up. 

Brick and mortar assurance—We feature products of nature. Each is unique with natural quirks. If you have any questions or issues, before or after purchase, please contact us via phone or email. We want you to be delighted, not merely satisfied, with your online selection. 

A Trusted Source—Join hundreds of crystals fans, Facebook and Instagram followers, and Gemstone Rewards members. Shop with confidence at California Gemstones, in-store and online. Customer rated 4.8 Stars on Google and 5 Stars on Yelp.

About Us

California Gemstones

at Grossmont Center

Over 5 years ago, California Gemstones was born in a kiosk at Parkway Plaza Mall near San Diego. Within a year, we outgrew the kiosk and upgraded to a 1,200 sq. ft. store.  We are proud to say we are now in a 2000 sq. ft flagship store in Grossmont Center (La Mesa, CA) where we offer an ever-changing selection of crystals, fossils, and natural stone jewelry. If you're in the area, stop on in and say hello. Or shop our inventory online. Just like at the store, new items are added all the time.
