  • Well I saw online that there was a perfect ring for my girlfriend. I ordered it about three days before Christmas and I made it just-in-time. It needed to be here a little bit smaller so we took it...  more »
  • We washed gravel and picked thru to find small sapphires in the afternoon sun. So fun and relaxing, Very helpful staff went thru all our "tailings" after we were thru and found several more we had...  more »
  • My kids (9 year olds) had a great time sifting through a bag of “gems”. They did not find anything of value but came away happy and with some souvenirs.  more »

  • Buy a $20 bag of dirt and rocks and spend 30+ minutes mining for sapphire! We ended up buying a second bag and staying for an hour or so. We all had a great time. The customer service is fantastic, and the employees all seem to genuinely enjoy doing what they do.
  • Every time we go to Philipsburg we get a bag from both this store and the one across the street. I don't know why we get one from the other store because we always get better stones at Montana Gems. They do a beautiful job cutting and firing the stones as well. Will be back in a few weeks to get another bag!
  • Love it! So much fun. We found several (8 to 10) gems large enough to cut. We're excited to get them back.
  • Love visiting Montana Gems! Good prices on the different gravels. Great prices on gem cutting. The kids love playing in the wash area and sluice. Anna is an awesome lady! So knowledgeable and fun to talk to! We visit at least once a year and we'll keep coming back!
  • Montana Gems were absolutely amazing! We bought some gravel to bring home and go through. They took their time answering all my questions. The owner was so pleasant to visit with. Can't wait to go back!!!
