  • I'm really skeptical of these places, but my three year old and wife were dying to do it. We originally tried Crystal Mountain but they were unexpectedly closed, so we tried PF. It was great! My famil...  read more »

  • My boyfriend and I are from West Palm Beach, FL and were visiting good friends in Asheville. We were looking for an awesome experience, and we found it at this gem mine. We got the 7.5 gallon bucket, which was worth $60, but was only $55 with the coupon online that the girl there recommended. The bucket promised fossils, gemstones, minerals and geodes, and it lived up to every expectation! We found 2 Ziploc bags full of gemstones, and 3 large geodes! The staff was super friendly and helpful, they stayed around to help identify all of the stuff you found. It was definitely an experience I would repeat if I came to this area again! Definitely kid friendly, there were several families there with children ages maybe 5 and older, and definitely reasonably priced. Awesome experience!
  • This is one of the best gem mines I've been to. The ladies were very friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. Can't wait to go back.
  • My husband and I brought my parents from New Jersey to visit brevard and we stopped to go gem mining first. It was a great experience and alot of fun. Found alot of cool big rocks and gems. Can't wait to make it a yearly tradition.
  • Absolutely amazing visit from the time we pulled in the parking lot till we left we had the best customer service. The amount of stones and fossils that we came home with was amazing. I highly recommend this stop when you are in the area.
  • This was our first time gem mining, and what a great experience!!! Thank you Al for all your help today!! He treated everyone there so nice, not to mention he also got just as excited as we did when we found something. He also was very informative about everything we discovered!! Thank you so much for the great experience today! We will be back!!
