WELCOME to Lin Ottinger's Moab Rock Shop!! Located on North Main Street in Moab, this is the largest rock shop in Southeastern Utah. We have a large variety of mineral specimens, fossils, crystals, polished stones, dinosaur bones, antiques, maps, gem stones, and petrified wood to name a few. There's fun, educational, and interesting things for both children and adults, from the new to serious collector, there truly is something for everyone.
Lin Ottinger has operated the Moab Rock Shop since 1960. His knowledge of rocks, minerals and fossils is well known, gaining him recognition in many national and international publications. Many of his discoveries have been donated to museums around the world. They include such things as a new species of dinosaur, tracks of rare or previously-undiscovered dinosaurs & flying reptiles, fossil sea shells, uranium and other rare minerals and crystals. "IGUANADON OTTINGERI" is a 30' 7 ton Sauropod that Lin discovered in 1973 just north of Moab, later named for him by Dr. James H. Jensen of Bringham Young University.
If you're ever in the Moab area we hope you take a few minutes to visit us. Chilren ages 0 - 90 all get a free dinosaur bone when they visit our shop and follow the dinosaur tracks!! Thanks for taking the time to visit our website and hopefully our shop & museum as well.
