Meandering on US Hwy 226 I chanced upon Gem Mountain Gemstones. When we kids were little, our parents took us to rustic place to “mine for gemstones”. Maybe we got a few ruby or emerald chips; I wonder whatever happened to them...? Later, my dad bought his own Rock Polisher. Boy, was it loud! It did make some smooth, colorful rocks into small works of art. As I browsed the shops here, I was enthralled at all the beautiful rocks, gems, and jewelry. I found a 3 stoned opal ring set in silver for only $150! I tried it on but ended up only buying a bag of quartz rocks to put in my flower pots and a small book on rocks and minerals. It’s all so fascinating; I may have to buy my own rock polisher.
Our two girls shared the $35 assorted bucket. They thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We ended up with a nice variety of stones. The staff were nice and got us setup with mining. Afterwards, we took our findings inside and staff separated the ones worth cutting. We didn't have any cut but plan on polishing them one day. The experience took about an hour.
