While it is off the beaten path we found it after the 5km or 3 mile dirt road. My wife and I had a great time picking through the piles of rocks looking for amethyst as the owner set up for a blast. After about an hour they asked us to move to a safe distance so they could blast. WOW. After the explosion, we found the most amazing gems. We left with about 40 lbs or about 20 kg of great gems and one large one full of amazing amethysts. Best of all we were allowed fairly free access to the area (not the mine pit itself, I am sure for our safety) and we could use our own tools to take off excess stone to get the very best gems. A way better value than the other amethyst mine in the area that charges for admission. Great place and very friendly people.
