In Stein Center you will find a jewelery gallery and shops where we lay emphasis on jewelry, souvenirs and artifacts in Norwegian rock. We find most of råstein themselves, and most products are made by our own producers. In our museum you will find the largest exhibition of Norwegian mineral and gemstone in the country. Free entrance
