  • Such a super cool shop! We collect stones and will be doing the mining as well. The shop though is FULL of awesome stones and crystals!

  • Amazing place. Always. We’ve been here multiple times and won’t go to any other Gem Mining place out there. In fact, we’ve driven an hour and passed others to come here. Awesome staff, family...

  • I highly recommend this place for people of all ages. My group of 5 adults and 1 nine month old had a blast. The people working were friendly and extremely helpful. We got the Big Green Bucket and got multiple gems, geodes, and even a megalodon tooth. The gift shop is big and has beautiful stones and gems. They even have goats and a chicken that you can feed. Also, the entire building has a nice aesthetic and a fun atmosphere. Overall, Its a fun spot to add to your vacation, for both parents and kids.
  • Had an absolutely wonderful time! My two daughters age 3 and 9 loved every second and as we drove home my 3 year old said “Mommy I want to go again”. Visiting from Texas and this is a little hidden gem you must try! Kyle was exceptional and polite. We’ll certainly be back next time we’re in town! ❤️
  • Absolutely a delight every time! The staff have been above and beyond in their friendliness and helpfulness each time I visit. Their prices are the best I’ve found in the area. The only thing I wish is that they were closer, but I find it every bit worth the drive to visit them. I can’t speak to their mining/panning experience as I have not done that, but the shop is lovely in all regards. You can tell these folks genuinely have a passion for their products.
  • This place is so much fun. We initially went for a birthday party. There is a lovely area by a steam to eat. Mining for gems is great fun. The store was incredible too with tons to look at and animals to feed.
  • FANTASTIC! Wonderful staff, who even opened our geode for free (often get charged for that.) It was raining, and they have a great indoor mining area, which is perfect. The shop is pretty fun to browse as well. Very happy with this experience.
