TESTIMONIALS

WHAT CUSTOMERS SAY

Matt Longley -

“We came here because our 5 year old has an infatuation with rocks and gems. They offer buckets from $35 up to $1500, with buckets starting at $100 including a $30 discount toward gems being cut. My wife and daughter had a blast digging in the bucket and using the trays to see what rocks they found. Once done, we were able to take everything inside to be identified and cut. There is also a fossil and mineral/gem museum. Would highly recommend this for something different to do while in Pigeon Forge.”

Michelle Hobbs -

“Found a beautiful ruby when we were gem mining with my daughter and decided to get it cut and made into a necklace at our jeweler. LOVE how this turned out. I would come back to this gem mining place when I visit again.”
