  • Spent $25 dollars on a bag of gem krazy went through it twice with my daughter and only got 2 gems out of it that I could have bought for $2 at farmers market. Super bummed out, as is my daughter. Feeling ripped off. I get that u take a chance but if these r hand made then they should at least have more then 2 gems in them. Will not recommend to friends.
  • Received your fun "Gravel Gravel Party Kit" and it was awesome! The kiddos loved the cool geodes and hunting for gem treasures in the gravel. The gem screens, loupes, geodes, gem vials, tweezers, baggies and gem ID cards made them all feel like true gem experts! Besides being educational teaching them about different gems and how to find them, they loved learning and doing something new. They also thoroughly loved breaking open the mysterious geodes to discover the beautiful, colorful crystals inside. I totally recommend this for a child's unique party!
  • Could not have been more fun! We had so much fun in the morning with Doug that we came back in the early evening for another round of sapphire mining. After we had gone through our gravel, he actually went over it again for us to be sure we hadn't missed any gems. Amazing! When we came back in the early evening, Doug and Chrissy stayed late to help us. Talk about superior customer service! We highly recommend spending a bit more for the bags of Missouri River gravel. Our found stones were really nice. We've done sapphire mining before, but this time we spent less and got more. The jewelry selection in the shop is good. They have really nice items and pricing is affordable. Make the trip to Montana Gems as an excursion not to be missed. We plan on coming back for more. See, Montana Doug? We left you a good review! Lol Thanks for making our mining experience a blast. Srsly.
  • We have purchased several fun items from Montana Gems starting with different gravels in 2012 for kids projects. I recently (Dec. 2015) purchased two of the very nice magnetic glass and silver plate necklaces for our grandaughters to fill with polished rock chips. The service is great and the shipping exceptional. We've enjoyed being about to connect on line.
  • We love Montana Gems! It has helped us provide wonderful gifts to two special people in our life that are rock hounds!!! Shipping is quick and the updated website is wonderful! Montana Gems is definitely a site that one needs to keep in memory for that perfect gift!!! Thanks!
