I did not go to the mine, I just shopped at the gift shop. I enjoyed the variety of rocks and items sold in the store. I took a walk outside to the different tables of rock varieties looking at the quartz crystals in particular. I wasn't exactly a big spender today, but I was looking for items for a... More

We love coming to this mine. Found plenty of crystals & the staff is very friendly. Sunscreen is a big must have along with clothes you don't mind getting dirty & sturdy shoes

DO NOT go to this mine in a regular car. I have rock chips and am totally bummed I wasted my time. Terrible road going up. No water except if you buy it. No water to rinse crystals. Not good for children.

Had a wonderful time with the grandson. He did the zip line twice and looked for crystals. Took 4 nice crystals home. A great outing and very educational as how crystals are formed millions of years ago.

My first experience in crystal mining was at Jim Coleman's mine. I loved it and have been back at least once a month since then. The price is $10 for all day, you can rent tools, there is portapottys and picnic table and expert advice on finding and cleaning crystals.

You purchase your "mining license" from the rock shop on Highway 7. The lady who gave directions reminded us of Boomhauer on "King of the Hill"--thick accent and fast talker. Thank goodness her instructions came with a map! The mines themselves are about a 15 drive away down very dusty gravel and dirt roads. Kids 9 and under are free... More

My wife and I dug for quartz for a couple of hours. We found some pretty good size quartz. Next time we would bring some lawn chairs and a cooler for water/food. We saw a group that was smart and brought some shade. Only $10 per person. Don't confuse with Ron Coleman's which apparently charges $20 per person.

The ladies at the rock shop and mine were nice, but every question got an "I don't know" or " They didn't tell me anything about that." They also don't warn you at the rock shop how bad the road is, but clearly let you know there are no refunds for any reason. The lady even said they're told not... More

You stop off at the rock shop to pay for your mine fees to collect Crystals. The shop gives you directions and there is a large hill your vehicle will have to climb but I saw small cars making it up on a rainy day. There is no shade, but for $10 you can hunt all day. It was real... More
