This is the best gem mining experience in the Lake Lure area. My kid's a sucker for it - and it's harmless fun so I've been to them all. This is a great location overlooking the river and we had some of the best fossils in our bucket. This will be the only location for gem mining I visit in the Lake Lure area from now on. The downtown Chimney Rock sites pale in comparison.
My husband and I took three of our granddaughters (7, 5, and 3) to The Gem Mine last week and they had a blast! They all came home with several large stones/minerals which were really quite pretty! After mining, we bought ice cream (which was DELISH) and ate it inside the shop where it was cool!! Will definitely bring the grandchildren back and will also refer friends and family. Lots of fun!
