  • I have tried other popular sapphire places. This one has much better, bigger more cuttable gems than I have found anywhere else. I liked it so much I went back a week later.
  • We have stopped at almost every place in Iowa, South Dakota, North Dakota, Montana, and Wyoming and this place is at the top of our Favorites List! Bruce and his family are the Best! We didn't spend much money and had the best time, even walked away with a small bag of sapphires. if you are in the area, it is a MUST STOP! Thanks Bruce for the great time, education, and your generosity. if we make it back to Montana, we will stop again.
  • Went to the mine yesterday and had an excellent time. We found over 50 stones. Bruce was so helpful and showed us a great time, digging in the dirt.
