LOL, Rated our business on a drive by? WOW, We were NOT happy with our neighbors either, but we didn't get to choose them. I sure wish you would have come inside so we could show you why we had so many 5 star reviews......More

We had so much fun! The owners are very knowledgeable and even cut gems if you find something nice. We did ~ we got many extraordinary gems and crystals. I'm getting two pieces cut - a ring and a pendant. Highly recommend!

As my 8 year old loves gems and mining due to the popular video game, he had never actually "mined" for gems. Choose your bucket size beginning at $10.00. We chose the 25.00 pail. Holly, the owner took the time to explain every gemstone to...More
