  • This little gem mine was awesome. Just to walk on the rocks of the river and then the gift shop had so much stuff. Reasonably priced great attraction for a family 
  • We went because the child insisted. They make you pay for a bucket full of sand stones inside, but that becomes an exciting adventure for the child. It was worth it, we had a good time.

  • I was looking for an activity for a 8 year old boy. This was great! Fun, interesting and easy going. Poeple there are ice and other customer too. My sun is very proud of his tresure. 
  • All I have to say is that this place is a hidden gem in beautiful downtown Brevard. It is very family oriented, and very welcoming to anyone and everyone. My great grandfather loves to walk downtown and we have enjoyed several afternoons stumbling into the store looking for treasures and ended up talking with the owner who was very respectful to me and my great grandfather and let us stay as long as we wanted. My great grandfather is 89 years old, I am 23 and I can tell you firsthand that this place is great for ALL ages. Keep doing what you do, and we will keep coming back. Thanks again.
  • I brought my niece there, I've been to a couple gem mines before this one seemed pretty nice. Found quite a bit of stuff. I think we got the second biggest bucket and found about 2 bags of gems. All and all she loved it, won't let those rocks 5 feet away from her haha
  • I love this place! Really cool rock shop, looks like a museum. It was uper fun to go planing for gems in the mining area! nice people that make you feel right at home!
  • After my husband and I relocated to Brevard, we had no idea what we could do for some fun. We heard from many locals that Crystal Mountain was the place to go! When we walked in we were instantly greeted by friendly staff members. The store was filled with upbeat music and beautiful rock specimens of all sizes. I was in heaven on Earth! Being a gem fanatic, I spent hours in here looking around and piling up different items at the front desk. The staff was extremely informative and told me so many interesting facts about all sorts of different items that were placed throughout the store. My husband and I decided to give the mining a go once we looked through the store and decided on our massive amount of items to buy.... and we were anything but disappointed! The buckets were filled with all sorts of different gems! They were so vibrant and colorful, not to mention we got some massive crystals! The staff kindly identified and went through all of the stones that we found. They really took their time helping us and making sure we had a wonderful experience. We left with bags filled of items from the mining we did and the items we picked out. Crystal Mountain is a place that you must visit at least once if you're a local or just passing through! The staff is highly informative, friendly and goes above and beyond to make the experience even more fun than it already is. The buckets are filled with all sorts of different treasures, and the store has so many different collectables and fun little trinkets. This is a place that will not disappoint! We recommend Crystal Mountain to all of our friends and family! Check them out!
  • Came to Brevard with my family to meet up with a buddy from college. I was worried that there wouldn't be a lot of things for my kids to do but was I wrong! As we were walking around town we stopped in the store on a whim. My son and daughter were immediately drawn to the running water and were soon BEGGING for a bucket. We bought one of the $30 thinking it would keep the kids occupied for a few minutes. We ended up spending close to an hour and a half sifting through the sand discovering bags full of treasure and exploring all the amazing stuff in the store. The staff was super knowledgable and answered the plethora of questions my 6 and 8 year old had. The environment was super family oriented and professional. I will defiantly be bringing my kids back here next time we are in town.
