Kids favorite spot
Jul 2021 • Family
My kids (7 & 3 years old) loved their visit. They didn’t want to leave. They had so much fun splitting a bucket. And they loved wondering the shop and looking at all the cool rocks and critters. Allison and Holden were so kind to my kids, even with all their questions. We went right when they opened and no issues.

Then they split the geode- with your help!!! Lots of Dalmation Stones this time-magnetic tiger's eye last time!

Really, a top choice!!!

Great unique place
Jul 2021 • Family
Stopped by here in a Sunday morning right when they opened which was perfect. We beat the crowd. Got the Green Bucket for $65 which was much bigger than we expected. We were there with our almost 2 year old daughter who loves to play in the dirt and this definitely kept her attention for a majority of the time. She was able to dig and transfer the dirt into the screen box, but we did have to keep a close hold of her on the bench so she wouldn’t fall. Our bucket was FULL of all sorts of gems including a geode and a ruby, a couple sapphires and tons of other cool finds. Totally worth the cost. They will also polish and put a stone on a necklace for only $40 which I thought was a steal. We spent about an hour there and had our daughter been willing to not take every rock out of every display, we would have stayed longer to walk around an check out everything we had! Overall a great experience and would go back for sure!

Fantastic Staff
Jul 2021
The artificial river created a unique experience, unlike other crystal stores. From the beginning, the staff created a very welcoming and warm atmosphere. Allison helped my fiancee and I identify the gems that we found while sifting through dirt. She was also a great resource at identifying different types of crystals within the store before we made our purchase.

Educational adventure for kids
Jul 2021
Our two granddaughters (ages 3 1/2 and 7 1/2 years old) LOVED the Crystal Mountain Gem Mine. Employees Liz and Allison helped them identify the gemstones and other treasures found in their bucket of dirt. These young ladies even took time to shine their cellphone lights through the Firey Amber Stones. Grandma & Grandpa thought the trip was cool too!

The staff was friendly and showed us what the stones my granddaughter found were. She’s three and loved doing the “mining”. We used a Groupon and saved money! Glad we brought our little girl here! She wants to go back.

Kids loved the mining for gems so much we had to make a second trip before heading home from vacation. Can’t say enough about how great the customer service was, especially Holden who was amazing.
