Gem panning was fun...totally recommend getting a big bucket because you get much bigger pieces, we had 3 adults and 4 kids all panning a $75 bucket and each of us got an amethyst and several bigger gem/minerals as well! All had fun...many picnic tables next to the big store/exhibit so we had brought lunch and enjoyed just hanging out!
