An absolute "gem" of a place. The lady B who checks you in is the sweetest and answers and questions you may have along with loaning tools you may need to dig crystals. It's $25 to dig there, and you can get into untouched ground around the outside edge of the mine. Portapotties are kept clean and respectable. The only downside is the drive back to it can be... tricky. But their little signs of encouragement along the way are fantastic.

Very pretty drive up to the mine. Owner Bee is a very special person and very informative. This is a small mine but has some very pretty Crystal's. Really enjoyed my day at this mine and would recommend 100 percent to visit. One of mother natures treasures. 💎🔮💞 many thanks Bee from Dee
