You do know, don't you..............

that there's a Hetties Rock Shop in CHristchurch, for all your rockhounding needs and crystal proclivities? It's in the leafy suburb of Beckenham on the corner of Malcolm Avenue and Norwood Rd, right opposite The Birdwood, which is a lovely local cafe and eatery reviewed under it's own heading on TA. So your kids could browse the rocks and stones while you get coffee.
There is so much to look at; the shop is crammed with all sorts of facsinating things, including a piece of fossilised mammoth bone!!!!!!!!!! Who knew?
And there are lots of things to buy for 2 and 3 dollars. So it's the perfect place for kids to spent pocket money and birthday contributions.
Lots of crystals and stones all with explanatory cards.
Hetties is actually a bit of a Christchurch institution, so whether you're local or have managed to break out of your own lockdown location and are visiting, check this out for a bit if inexpenz=sive entertainment.

The range was exceptionally large. Well worth a visit. Allow more time for browsing than you might think.

My son has been learning and collecting stones for years now so he was so happy when we saw the shop while walking around Queenstown, but sadly we won’t be coming back. A very unfriendly staff thought we were there for freebies 😕 Without asking first, he grabbed a piece of information card from my sons hand and said in his exact words, “the cards are not for free, (with a smirk on his face, then added) or else you’ll be taking all my cards”. very unhappy experience with this shop.

Visited in January thinking I could find something interesting. I was disappointed The varies crystals were attractive but of no interest. There were many “tacky” selections that would attract younger children but not necessarily adults. I was “turned-off” by the “dark side” selections such the demonic games and tarot cards. It is no wonder crystals are the primary focus of this establishment

For those who love rocks

OK I might not qualify as an out-and-out rock hound but I find it hard to pass shops like this one. I liked Hetties because of its extensive range of minerals, including ones that I had not seen before. There were some great fossils too. Prices were reasonable and the shop was not hard to find in central Queenstown.

Good rock shop

Hetties has 3 shops in NZ and we visited all of them. This one had a good selection of rocks and fossils but smaller shop than their first one in Christchurch. Good for kids to look around and gifts to suit all budgets. A must visit in Queenstown although the shop in Christchurch was the biggest.

If you love crystals, fossils and all things rock you’ll love this place!
We purchased a number of crystals and enjoyed looking at everything - a real feast for the eyes.
The only downfall was that although the service good person didn’t have much knowledge of the crystals their metaphysical properties.

A great shop, with reasonable prices

This shop is great. Found it after visiting Hetties at Akaroa. Lots of great things in the shop. I bought a few things, that were much cheaper than what you would pay in Sydney.
