Every time we are near the blue ridge area we have to stop by! It's so much fun for for the whole family. The staff is extremely nice and so willing to help and answer any questions. We are definitely repeat customers.

Our second trip to this place. The people there are friendly and helpful. They make sure our son's experience is exciting and it only fuels his love for rock collecting! I appreciate that! My son leaves with lots of nice rocks and the sifting experience is easy for him to do compared to other places we have been to. We don't have to assist which is nice. He can enjoy it himself. It is also a lot cleaner than other places we have been to because they do not use clay. They have a cute store as well with a restaurant next door.

A nice place to relax and have some fun. You buy a bucket of sand which is loaded with jems and such, then use the strainer in the moving water trough. The owner and his helpers are very helpful. A must do if you have kids or teens. A bonus is it is a beautiful area to drive through.

This place is a gem! Way better than we expected. Friendly people, fun atmosphere, more gems than competitors right down the road (and more fun), great cafe next door. Try it out! They answer all the questions you have and it’s covered so you aren’t baking in sun. Best part was all the gems we came home with and the humor of the people at this establishment.. They even make it fun for teens who aren’t so willing to mine. They make gem mining so worth it.
