  • This family friendly mine in quiet, rural southside Virginia is fun and educational. There is no digging. You buy a bucket of rocks and use a water flue to pick out anything interesting. Staff helps.....  more »
  • We had a great time at the gem mine. My granddaughter loved going through the fossils and gems. It was educational as well as fun. It's a family business and you can tell they enjoy what what do  more »

  • This is a fun spot for kids to sift for gems. You purchase a bucket of dirt that is seeded with various gems. You then get the treasure hunt of sifting them out in a sluce system. The staff then helps identify the gems you got. It is a decent deal when you consider that your are buying the experience. However, it is worth noting that while your are guaranteed to find a decent amount of pretty rocks, you are not going to win the gem lottery here. The buckets are seeded, as opposed to being dirt pulled from an active mine.
  • Amazing and very helpful staff. We had a great time. Can't wait to go back and do it again and pick up our 2 stones!!
