Stone Sculptures, Paintings and Contemporary Art
About us | What we do
GeoRarities.com is owned by S.E. Goller and M.D. Goller, stone sculptors and painters. Our stone work is in a style we call “Redacted Modern Sculpture.” We look beyond traditional Modern Sculpture to find the natural color and texture in each piece and make it intrinsic to the final completed piece. We often find ourselves "in the gap between natural items and man-made technology." Among our pieces you might see stone mixed with computers and WWII items and other found items as well as paint and other media.
As longtime collectors of rare geologic items we’ve decided to also offer on GeoRarities.com for sell select items from our private collection including side - end - coffee tables, pedestals, stools, slabs and sculptures cut and carved from rare petrified wood stumps. Also stony and iron meteorites 4.5 billion years old and rarer than diamonds. Beautiful rare fine minerals, crystals, agates, rocks and fossils. many items are oversize for decorators, interior designers and landscape architects use in fine homes and gardens, art collections, public spaces, or business displays. We also offer multimedia and metal sculptures and select paintings and contemporary art. Contact us about your project or to visit our studio in the Oakley district of Cincinnati, Ohio.

How are your Jade, Chrysocolla, Petrified Wood and other Sculptures Created?
We select spectacular Jade, Chrysocolla, other stone or petrified wood logs, stumps, boulders, chunks and slice specimens. We cut and grind them to our designed form, then polish the pieces. They usually end up on custom designed and built stands for ideal display. Our sculptures run large to monumental and can be used as display art and focal points in a room, garden, hardscape, landscape to public display location.

What is Arizona Rainbow Petrified Wood?
Petrified wood can be found in many states and in countries around the world. Arizona petrified wood is famous for it's high quartz content and brilliant colors. Much of it comes from the Chinle rock formation. This petrified wood is between 220 and 250 million years old, early dinosaur age. This petrified wood can be polished up to a brilliant shine.
What is Indonesian Petrified Wood?
Our Indonesian petrified wood stump end, side and coffee tables, stools, pedestals and display slabs and slices come from Java Island, Indonesia. The petrified wood on Java Island is about 20 - 25 million years old. This product polishes up but has less quartz in it and mineral colors than the Arizona petrified wood. It's polish is less brilliant than Arizona petrified wood.
What kinds of Petrified Wood Sculptures, slab and slice display art are available?
As stone sculptures and artists we select spectacular log,stump and slice specimens. We polish the pieces and custom build stands for ideal display. All of our sculptures are large and can be used as focal points in a room or garden.
Meteorites are meteors that survive passage through the earth's atmosphere such that part of the meteors strikes the ground. More than 90 percent of meteorites are of stony, while the remainder consist partly or wholly of iron and nickel.
We sell both Iron and Stony Meteorites
We currently have a wide variety of NWA (North West African) Unclasified Stony meteorites in stock. These are also refered to as Chondites. All sizes available. Iron meteorites come and go from our website, so keep an eye open.
Fine Minerals, Rocks, Crystals and Fossils
We carry a wide selection of minerals, rocks and crystals.
What is the difference between a Mineral, a rock, a crystal and a gemstone?
In short, a mineral is a naturally occurring substance that is formed through geological processes. Minerals have a characteristic chemical and physical composition, particularly a highly ordered atomic structure that is normally crystalline. A rock is an aggregate of minerals and does not need to have a specific chemical composition. A crystal is a solid whose atoms are arranged in a “highly ordered” repeating pattern. These patterns are called crystal lattices. If an object has its atoms arranged in one of seven crystal lattice patterns, then that object is a crystal. A gemstone is a highly attractive and valuable piece of cut and polished mineral that is used in jewelry or other decorations. Some rocks such as Lapis Lazuli and organic matter such as Amber also classify as gemstones.
Many of our specimens are oversize, large and sometimes huge. This makes them ideal for decorative use by interior designers, landscape and garden architects and collectors of large specimens.
Healing, Spiritual, Chakra and Metaphysical stones
For eons people have utilized the power of healing stones and crystals to release mental, physical and spiritual blockages, thereby facilitating the free flow of energy in the body. We offer a wide variety stones, crystals and wands.
