  • I am so mad at this place. Their website and thejr answering machine says they will be open on Friday from 10-4 guess what they're not open. We drove from 2 hrs away. This is the 2cd time theyve done this. I liked it because they have good dirt, not just a pile of rocks like everywhere else. I could cry because it is ruining a vacation.
  • Our family had a wonderful time mining for gems. We found lots of good stones and Matt over at the jewelry store was great to work with. He made us some fabulous pieces of jewelry that we will treasure for a long time.
  • We brought my niece here thinking it would be a great kid thing to do (which it is) but now my husband and I are hooked. Matt and Zach are very knowledgeable and patient with all our questions. We will be back again on our next visit!
  • We had a great time and ended up with some beautifully faceted stones!! We will be back every year!!
  • Nice place to take the kids
