Beaver Bay Agate Shop

Beaver Bay Agate Shop

    Hello and welcome to our website. The Beaver Bay Agate Shop has been in business since 1941 making it the oldest rock shop in all of America. We are a family owned business that specializes in Lake Superior Agate, Thomsonite, Merry Ellen Jasper, and Binghamite. Our shop carries a large variety of jewelry, rough/polished stones, carvings, spheres, lapidary equipment, fossils, beads, books, and many more one of a kind items. Please check out the About Us for more information.

   While on the shore you may find a beautiful stone that you would like turned into jewelry. Keith has been creating jewelry for over 15 years and would love to turn that special stone into something you can wear. He works in both Sterling Silver and 14kt gold. We also offer wire wrapping and face polishing.

  We buy rock collections. Please call or email us.

Thanks for visiting and hope to see you soon. Call with any questions you may have.

Shop Notes
   Fall colors are just starting. Should be peek in about 2 weeks. Teresa, Jessica, and Shanda are all out on a buying trip. New items will be coming soon! Keep an eye posted on our facebook. We will start adding Lake Superior Agates to Etsy. This will give Keith time to add local jewelry to shop before it gets taken and listed online. This year we celebrate our 80th birthday!! There will be multiple fundraisers going until Christmas 2021. To enter please visit our facebook page or shop to buy a ticket. Tickets are $10 each per fundraiser. First prize is a large Amethyst Cathedral, 2nd prize is Lortone 3A tumbler, 3rd prize is a Lake Superior Agate pendant. 100% of proceeds will go to National Kidney Foundation and St. Luke's - Heart Department. Thank you all and see you in shop!
