  • $20.00 for a 2 hour dig and you have to provide your own tools. But you do find some good size crystals.  more »
  • Absolutely loved it! Lots of crystals to find, went up to the mine and it was so much fun. We will be returning at a later date  more »
  • I would highly recommend this as a family outing. You can't glamorize it, it's a trip to dig in the dirt for pretty rocks and its not a modern place. However, the staff is FABULOUS. They are all...  more »
  • We have gone crystal mining several times over the past few years at different mines, but Wegner Quartz Crystal Mines is by far the best experience we have had. A very well run operation. Yes, we came home with lots of crystals! The beautiful selection of stones in their store is worth the drive out. We did the Phantom tour and Mike was our guide. He was outstanding! We will be back again.
  • Amazing. We were all like kids in a candy store (ages 17-50!). BRING GLOVES, some of the crystals you dig up may be sharp. We had a blast and will return for sure next time we visit Hot Springs. Great place, great people and the driver Steve is very helpful. He will give you great tips for finding crystals that are valuable!
  • We took the Crystal Forest Mine tour. Had lots of fine digging quartz crystals. Each of us got half a bucket (tools provided) - some are pretty large and clear! We had two hours up at the mine to dig by ourselves. Plenty of space for everyone. The owners are super helpful and professional too. Highly recommend.
  • My wife and I celebrated our 33rd anniversary at Wagner’s today. What a great experience! We found lots of high quality crystals, clusters and phantom points. Our guide Mike was amazing and super helpful. Mike made our experience awesome and we really would like to thank him in this review.Thanks Mike for an outstanding job today. Thanks Ray and Dawn Navarette
  • I love it here! Everyone was friendly and helpful, especially our guide Mike. There are TONS of quartz to mine, you can’t walk without stepping on some. The ride up there is a bit rough but SO worth it. Highly recommend!
