About us.........but more importantly about YOU
We opened Foxtail Gallery just after Thanksgiving in 2007. We are located in Old Town Clovis, a slow paced section of Clovis, Ca. filled with shops and restaurants and plenty of good hometown charm. We specialize in minerals, gemstones, fossils, meteorites, petrified wood, and other natural history items. But that's enough about us...............let's talk about what we can do for you.
Interest and Collecting
The wonderful thing about gemstones, minerals and fossils is that everyone can appreciate them in one way or another. You don't have to have a geology degree to see the beauty in a perfectly clear quartz crystal from Brazil, or a vivid blue aquamarine crystal that formed with a jet black tourmaline crystal from Namibia. For the budding rock collector, we have examples of minerals that start as low as $2.00 a piece. For the serious collector, we have high end specimens in perfect condition with well documented histories on where they came from and what collections they've been in.
If you have a friend or family member that is hard to shop for (you know.... that person that already has everything), Foxtail Gallery will have something truly unique and one of a kind that would make a wonderful gift. Maybe you can get them their birthstone, but in the raw form. If you can't decide, we have gift certificates as well.
Design and Decor
For interior design, minerals and fossils open up a whole different realm of possibilities. The beauty in this is that they come in all different shapes, sizes, colors, textures, crystal forms and so on. No matter what your decor is, there is a mineral specimen or fossil display that will compliment it perfectly. Browse our online store or visit our gallery and check out our large design pieces and all the beauty that they can add to your home or business.
Throughout time, different civilizations and societies have believed in the healing qualities of various stones. Many people truly believe that they can feel the energy coming from these stones and the different ways each individual one makes them feel. If your looking for a certain mineral for that purpose, the chances are we probably have it. If not for anything else, come check it out just for curiosities sake.
Another opportunity that we can offer you is investment grade minerals and gemstones. If you would rather turn your hard earned money into something tangible, something that will hold its value, we have items such as natural gold nuggets from California and Australia, museum quality meteorites, gem quality mineral specimens from every corner of the earth, and fine cut gemstones such as emeralds, opals, tanzanites, and much much more.
