The Rock Garden was established in 1986 by the late Marilyn "Maddie" Brand on State Street in New Haven, Connecticut. Originally the store was a rock shop offering rocks, minerals, crystals & fossils to collectors. A Short while later more & more people began asking for specific crystals for energetic healing & jewelry and it was at that point we became a metaphysical shop. People in the neighborhood began asking for beads, and in 1989 we added gemstone beads and antique trade beads to the mix. Since moving to our Branford location in 1997 the shop has expanded our offering of crystals and minerals & gifts. Additionally we offer a large selection of Tarot decks. Our resident Reiki Master offers Reiki and teaches Reiki 1, 2 and Master Teacher Trainings throughout the year.
We do jewelry repairs. Pearl knotting, necklace & bracelet re-stringing.
