The concept for Rare Earth Gallery began over 40 years ago when owner Wayne Helfand envisioned the creation of the most spectacular natural art gallery in the U.S.. His enthusiasm for Earth’s precious geological gifts resulted in a gallery that makes unusual gems and minerals available to everyone from new rock hounds to the most discerning of designers. He continually travels the globe in search of the finest art from the earth to bring back to Arizona.
