  • The Rose Creek mine was a lot of fun for my 11 yr old son and myself. I took him there as a surprise. I have always had an interest in gemstones, and always wanted to check out different places in NC....  more »
  • Unexpected stop in our trip. Little more work than I thought, but it was fun and the staff was very helpful.  more »

  • We so enjoyed our visit today. A few of the adults in our party were reliving childhood memories, and children ages 4-12 experiencing the fun for the first time. The owner and staff made you feel like family. So many stones found! Very nice, clean facility. Everyone is talking tonight about the precious memories made.
  • We drove to NC from WI and thought that this was a Great place to go! They gave our family (20+ people) the same info as they do for class trips! Everyone had a great time mining for their own gems. We were also given a great recommendation for where to go to get our gems cut.
