Motown Rocks is a collector and retailer of rocks, minerals and fossils that we like. We'll put items up for sale in our store but if they don't sell, it's cool, because we like them! We sell online and at rock shows because we like to collect rocks and we can't control when the collection bug hits us!

The business that led to this website started small and innocently enough in 1986, when Dr. Robert Lavinsky participated in his first mineral show at the age of 14. With good mentors in the Columbus (Ohio) Rock & Mineral Society, Rob was exposed to the core of the hobby from an early age.


A well-organized site devoted to both fossils and mineral sales. New additions are easily found along with handpicked specimens and the major categories are called out with simple galleries of what you might be interested in purchasing.


Fossils, rocks, and minerals are a reminder of all that is good, worthwhile, and wholesome in the universe. They remind us of the past, and challenge us to create and preserve a positive future for the next generation.
