Faceted Navigation & Search

All,

I need an amazon like menu system so you can drill down categories,
price ranges, etc etc until you eventually find what you want. Then
what i would like is a direct link to this product so if you send it to
a user they can find what you were looking at it.

Ive done some searching and not really found anything. It will be a
mixture of text searching with or without.

Is there any plugins, techniques out there already that work with rails

I have used Solr for achieving this. And it works like a charm. Though I
had
implemented this using Java API, I have heard a lot of good things about
the
Ruby API as well.

Another contender would be
