We went to the Sugar Creek Gem Mine this week. Great place. Ben was very knowledgeable about all of the gems that we found. Very nicely ran operation! You pick a 1 gal, 2 gal, 5 gal, etc. bucket filled with sand and gems. Then you take the bucket outside to the mining area where there is water running through these troughs and they have sifter boxes. Our family enjoyed finding the beautiful gems. You can find aquamarine, amethyst, quartz, emeralds, etc. It was fun. After you find your gems, take them back inside and Ben will explain to you all about the gems you have. They also have jewelry made out of the gems and bags of gems you can buy already polished. It is not cheap to buy the buckets of sand/gems. 1 gal is $21, 2 gal is $32, etc. It was a lot of fun and interesting.
