  • We went with our 4 kids ages 4 to 16. They all really enjoyed sifting through the dirt. It was a bit chilly so we used the inside sifting stations. The youngest also enjoyed the indoor fish pond and the goats. The workers were all very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. We had fantastic time!
  • LOVED IT!!! Heather was amazing. We found so many neat things. Myself and the kids I had with me enjoyed learning about raw gems and the other tidbits of information you find out while visiting. I will certainly go back.
  • My daughter and I went here when I was visiting North Carolina. They have a huge selection of rocks in all shapes and sizes, some jewelry, and if you buy or find a stone that has crystal inside, they have a machine that will cut it in half for you. Panning for the gemstones and rocks was fun too. We had a great time looking through the store and panning. I highly recommend this place for tourists and locals too, especially if you do some sort of craft with rocks and gems. We came away with a whole bunch of beautiful rocks and gems at a very reasonable price.
  • I've always wanted to go. The wife and I got the chance when taking our grandson home after the New Year. This is a pretty cool place.. I didn't have a clue. But Joe tried his best never the less. Nice size Geodude Emerald and Ruby were found. They offered to do in-store cleaning polishing and fitting if we wanted. We will go back.
  • Very easy process! Extremely helpful caretaker, she even took time at the end to go over and teach our boys about each stone and gem!! Suggest to find competitor coupons prior to heading over, they will be honored.
