So many things to see in the store and outside. Opportunities to spend a little or more. You can buy one of several sized buckets to sift through to find your treasures. (Medium size is $22) There is someone there that can identify your treasures...More

My daughter took our grandson to mine a bucket. Best 40$ spent on trip. Each bucket contains lots of cool rocks. Rest of trip talked about, looked at, and sorted the gemstones.

The kids loved doing the mining activity and got some really great finds in their buckets - much better than other places we've been to. Staff was very friendly and helpful as well. Lots and LOTS of beautiful rocks at mostly reasonable prices, I thought.
