We treat our customers like family and ensure that they always feel welcome and know that they can trust our staff to give them the highest quality customer care possible. These values are the main things that sets 'DRGM' apart from our competition. We do as much as we can out in the open where our customers can ask questions, even from our vendors. We want people to learn about the rocks and gems and sometimes the info is better from one of the vendors. We encourage our customers and employees to ask questions and strive to learn more about the beautiful stones around us.

We promise to give you the best educational experience that your money can buy and we strive to make memories that will last a lifetime.

  • We had so much fun! The youngest kid got the emerald strike, and we got the mother load. We got some amazing stones. It was a neat experience for the kiddos. The fossil museum was the best in my opinion. The guy Chris who was in there had to tons of stories and really super cool information. We enjoyed his guidance on what to look at and history information.
  • I can't express enough how wonderful our experience was here! We were immediately greeted by the staff at the door, and given our options for the day. We went to the museum where we were given the perfect amount of guidance and information. Afterward, we did the unseeded ore bucket which was a fun experience. Once we got the goodies from the bucket, we had two staff members help us out with identification. We even opted for the gem cutting service, and are excitedly waiting for those. Overall, everything was entertaining and amazing!
