  • 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've enjoyed gem mining at this location for the past several years. Zach and Matt are both extremely knowledgeable and super friendly. We have had huge emeralds, peridot, and sapphires cut. We are quite pleased and always look forward to coming back. This year I had a sapphire cut. Here is the before and after pictures. The after yielded two very dark sapphires at an oval cut that were both over 3cts!
  • They are nice and great to work in I love the stones they cut and placed
  • Great place for family fun
  • Great fun
