    A very nice close to the main road to HIghlands. Area was clean and very easy to mine. The help was exceptional and we were able to get some large gems including an 8 carat Aquamarine and several larg...  more »

    The road getting there is not so much fun, but we had fun going through the buckets to find the gems and stones. Found some very nice pieces!  more »

    Best place to stop, shop, or experience hunting for gemstones! We tried other mines in the area only to end up filthy and exhausted. This place was clean, easy, educational, and fun! Our buckets were loaded with many stones, and we even had jewelry made from some of them! The family had been in business for over 30 years, and by far gave us the best opportunity to find and experience the thrill of gemstone hunting. We had some stones cut and jewelry made right there! Am looking forward to a chance to go back! Definitely a good Bucket List item!

    Our family of five (including 7 year old son and two daughters, 11 & 14) truly enjoyed our treasure hunt at Jackson Hole. Daniel was friendly, helpful and informative while we panned for gems and the ladies inside were great to work with examining and explaining what treasure the kids had found. A major plus was the fully covered trough area with cement floor. No wading through muddy grounds or baking in the sun while looking for gems. Truly a great time for the family. The girls even took home new necklaces cut from stones found in their buckets.

    Looking for gems and having some small talk with the staff while the dog is chewing on a bone. We had a great morning here and found some cool gems. Some still look like stone to me, especially the rubies. We have never done it before and have no comparison to other mines, but I if I didn't know better I would say the buckets are salted. Was fun, though!

    Found lots of big gems in every bucket. Seemed almost fake. But you definitely get the best gems at this mine.
