  • This place is awesome! I couldn’t believe how many large specimens and thumb sized loose points I was able to find. Come prepared and pack a lunch because you’ll wanna stay all day. The staff was great, I felt at home with that sweet sweet southern hospitality. We were there for two days in our own pockets and filled the bed of the pickup. We came all the way down from Wisconsin and will be back as soon as we can! Thanks so much for such a memorable experience.
  • We had an incredible time at the mine! Toni and Michael helped us find some absolutely stunning pieces and made the entire experience truly unforgettable. In the few hours we were there we found countless beautiful pieces, more than we could even carry home. I would come back in a heart beat! This is without question an awesome mine and I cannot recommend it enough. They offer special exclusive pockets for a higher price to dig. However we just did the normal fee and found AWESOME stuff. I can't even imagine what you'd find in a private pocket!
  • This place is far off the beaten track. The road gets very rough, I would not take a car. You will get a chance to dig for crystals, we were shown a spot to look and found some really nice points. Bring tools, be ready to get dirty and have fun. It was a nice family fun day. Bring a cooler with water and bring snacks. This is a bare bones place, but if you come prepared you will have fun.
  • True, authentic mining experience, real mining and many times from areas you know that nobody has ever mined but you. You will leave with crystals, period. Owners are good people. You can buy tools there or bring your own. Pack a lunch, bring a bucket for all your treasures. Best mine in Arkansas.
  • Best place to dig for crystals in Arkansas. The staff are very helpful and welcoming. I always find quality clusters when digging here.
