  • Great time with my son and daughter! They had an amazing time mining there. The owner James is very knowledgeable and great with my kids. Ordered two rings and a set of earrings and they look amazing! Definitely would recommend this to others! Great for kids and the wife. Thanks again and will see you guys next year for sure!
  • Best time mining ever!! Thanks to James and Matt for doing a fantastic job on my garnet pendant!! I can't wait to visit again for the stories and get more jewelry made!! And Matt thanks for the tip on line dancing we went and had a blast!!
  • Our family has tried a few gem mining places in the Gatlinburg/ Pigeon Forge area while on vacation. This is the only one we have returned to. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and you get good usable gemstones. We would recommend this place to anyone looking for a good time with the family. We'll be back next year! 1 year later and the experience was just as great!
  • Nice place friendly staff. My son loved it.
  • My husband and I tried this after having been to a few mining facilities in Georgia. While this was on a much smaller scale it was still quite fun. I had amethyst earrings made from gemstones I found there and quite honestly they were much nicer than the emerald ring I had made in Georgia. We would definitely go back!
