  • Our second time to visit the mine and dig for crystals. We found more than enough. Caretaker was very friendly and let us know which areas had been overturned that morning. Sunscreen is a must!!!! Hat...  read more »

  • Office/Gift Shop very clean and uncluttered. I was a little taken aback by the form we had to sign and initial all the things we were not allowed to do. Not throw rocks? Obviously this had been a prob...  read more »
  • Went to do the tour and there was a bus tour of senior citizens that had just arrived for their your. We were able to be squeezed in with them. There wasn't enough room on the truck for us to do that part of the tour do we opted to wait for the next round. While waiting, we were offered a complimentary zip line for our trouble. My husband had wanted to go, chose not to due to price, was now thrilled that he could! Awesome afternoon spent here. Very friendly staff.
  • beautiful location. the zipline was great, but the tour guide could use a history lesson. She claimed the natives "just gave away" the land the mine is on.. not only was she wrong, it was very offensive.
  • Friendly, helpful, and kind Staff. Our Boy Scout Troop 733 Arlington Texas enjoyed the digging and the zip line. We made our reservation in advance and got a special group price. With all the crystals we found, we got a lot more then our money back. As far as experience. ...PRICELESS!
  • We had a great time at the mine! We found plenty of quartz points both clear and amber colored, and the entire area is littered with less valuable quartz. The mine is simple and easy enough for inexperienced families seeking an enjoyable experience to dig, made of around 50 piles of Quartz rich clay and earth which you can look through with provided tools to find points. The people there were very kind: one man in the gift shop at the entrance gave me a crystal point at the beginning of our dig, the ladies in the Coleman rock shop where you buy the mining permits were friendly as well, and our fellow diggers, who were of every age, showed us the same hospitality. We did have the unfortunate experience of a very steep ride to the mine, but it had rained recently and the axle on our car is very low. Also very economical in comparison with some of the other mines in the area. I would recommend this mine to every person wanting a fun, easy mining experience!
  • BEST PART OF OUR WHOLE TRIP!!!! Buying the whole package ($50) is definitely worth it! First, we dug for crystals. Then, we got a tour of the show room and mine. Then, we got to do unlimited zip lining!!! We would have stayed all day and ziplined if we hadn't had planned a full day of stuff.
