About Us

ZuZu’s Petals Rock Shop evolved out of our passion for the mineral kingdom and the beautiful creations of the earth. Always the rockhounds, we’ve been collecting for years. Getting in the dirt and digging is always fun, but most of our collection comes from trips to various rock shows. Our favorite, of course, is the Tucson Rock and Gem Show. We can find treasures from all over the earth in one location, and there is always something new and wonderful to see and learn.


It seemed only natural that some of these beautiful stones be turned into jewelry. Each piece is one of a kind like the stones themselves. The necklaces, earrings and pendants are designed and made in our store. We offer silversmith designs and wire-wrapping. We use only quality sterling silver for our work. We’ve been creating one of a kind pieces for our customers for years. We started our business with wire wrap pendants and earrings, eventually adding silver soldering to our designs. We are fortunate to be so close to the William Holland Lapidary School and we highly recommend it the any jewelry maker wishing to expand their talents. With such a wonderful place close by, who knows what new skills we will add in the coming years!

Love Of The Earth

We are honored to have an endorsement from MELODY (Love Is In The Earth Series). We carry her books; including Love Is In the Earth, The Crystal and Mineral Encyclopedia for sale in our store. We also have her book as a reference for use to help you with your selections. There is no other source, including us, that can give you as much accurate and comprehensive information on the stones.

"Today, the LIITE " Love Is In The Earth " series comprises a volume of 9 books including an Encylopedia and a Crystal Tarot set. This series is a wonderful library containing the mineralogical & metaphysical properties of thousands of stones, along with many specific techniques for advancing the work of Therapy through Crystals."

Our Name

This is our wonderful life and our store name reflects that for us. People who recognize the name will immediately know that our favorite movie is It’s A Wonderful Life. The movie not only has a wonderfully eclectic cast of characters, it also tells a great story about perspective. What at first appears disappointing or less than we would like can, in fact, be a gift and a blessing and even a wonderful adventure called life. It is the perfect name for our store.


The movie was released in 1946 and was not a big success at the box office. People wanted action and big adventure. The message in It’s A Wonderful Life” was much simpler. George Bailey had big dreams of adventure that did not materialize the way he had hoped. He was a good man who always looked at his family, neighbors and community with a sense of compassion and responsibility. He did not consider himself a success. He did not realize the impact his life had on those who came in contact with him.

What is success? Does our definition limit us? Are we chasing our limited vision of success and missing the beauty that is in front of us now? The message that doing the right thing; being honest, caring and having integrity did not pull in the crowds in 1946. It seems as if things haven’t changed that much over the years, but the message still rings true. If we don’t believe our life is a wonderful gift today, we may want to change our perspective and look at things differently. It changes everything.


ZuZu’s Petals Rock Shop is located in Alpine Helen, Georgia. We are in White Horse Square next to the Windmill Dutch Import store and close to the Old Heidelberg and King Ludwig’s Biergarten. We are open seven days a week, closing for two weeks at the end of January to attend the Tucson Rock and Gem Show.
