The Gem Mountain Experience The little town of Spruce Pine, close to the Blue Ridge Parkway is known all over the United States for many of its exports, but one thing still remains is the abundance and hunt for precious gem stones. At Gem Mountain the first thing you must do is pick out the type of bucket and which gem stones you would like to hunt for. This chart here will give you an idea of all that they find here at Gem Mountain and what we do is bring it in from different minesand we sell it you by the bucket. Now Ill explain the buckets to youones on the wall back here are all $20 dollar buckets. They have one kind in themwhatever the sign says is what youll find in that particular bucket. The next one is a $50 dollar mixed bucketthe next is an $80 bucketit has some of all this in itand that we cut one stone for you for free. Now the 125 bucket we cut two stones for free so what you need to do is decide what you want to look through and let us know and well het you set up and going. Then all the action takes place under the covered gem stone flumes where your mission is to discover and identify beautiful and valued gem stones. First just place a scoop of rough material on the screen and use the flume water to sift out the dirt, sand, and rock to reveal precious gem stones. There is even a chart next to you to refer to and help you identify what gemstones to look for. The Gem Mountain experience is fun for all ages whether it be an individual, families having fun together, or groups of all sizes. There are a variety of gem stones waiting to be discovered! Visitors are likely to detect traces of these types of Gem Stones: (List of all of the gem stones along with video) Note: Onscreen these gem stones will be shown for 10each. The rough cut, the cut stone, and jewelry example will be shown together for each gem stone listed below. Citrine Amethyst Topaz Emerald Rutigated Quartz Rose Quartz Aquamarine Smoky Quartz Garnet Sapphire Moonstone Adventurine Ruby Now that you have indentified all your gemstones bring them back into our store where certified gemologists will sort through your treasure collection of gem stones and help you in deciding what pieces could be cut and made into beautiful jewelry that will last a lifetime. Our experienced gem cutters will take your rough stone and shape the gem stone into whatever cut you would like to be placed into a ring, bracelet, or pendant. Once the gemstone has been cut it is then handcrafted and set into the jewelry you have requested. Look around the store there are many beautiful pieces of custom jewelry in our display cases for purchase or to view an example of the type of jewelry you would like to have made for you. We also have many other souvenirs items for purchase inside the store, such as books about gem mining, rock hammers and other tools for mining, mining hats for kids, and much more. All of our work is handmade here at Gem Mountain and is also guaranteed. Its a keepsake pretty much. It has a lot of sentimental value because you found that stone. At the same time you can get that piece of jewelry made about half of what it would actually cost you to go to the jewelry store well about less than half of what it would cost you to go to a jewelry store and buy that piece. We stand behind our jewelry 100%...if something happens to a ring all youve got to do is send it back and well take care of it. No questions asked.

Thanks for watching our crystal mining adventures. Check out the "sprite/fairy" some people say we released while digging this vein. Didn't notice it for a couple years until someone pointed it out in the video. Here it is slowed down... https://www.instagram.com/p/BAOYaocCJ3y/?taken-by=thecrystalcollector Watch as host Bryan Major digs quartz crystals in Georgia! These are dug direct from the vein they originated in. These are said to be some of the largest ever found in Georgia. Discovered by Jason Barrett in 2008, the crystals have become well known due to the size, the odd location near Atlanta, the rare alpine type vein they came from, and the super unique sparkle they had in the sun from the thousands of "sprouting" growth form baby crystals.. The mine in the video only has a limited supply left. The pure white quartz crystals coupled with the unique and odd growth forms, became a big hit up in Asheville, N.C. The metaphysical crowd and crystal healers have all loved the powers the Gwinnett quartz has locked away. Check out these two places to buy rocks and crystals. Thanks for helping support the cause. http://stores.ebay.com/ULTRA-ROCKS http://www.ebay.com/usr/okjunk Episode 3 at Diamond Hill Mine in South Carolina. http://youtu.be/JjJFhrlxnyo Best amethyst mining clip in Virginia: https://youtu.be/IkeeyrqZ2R0

Holiday Valley's newest attraction to Sky High Adventure Park, the Mister Happy Gem Mining Company. Targeted to children as young as 2, the experience mimics old fashioned panning for gold. Each miner purchases a bag of sand that contains either gems or fossils. The contents of the bag are dumped into a mining pan. Miners wash the sand away with water that flows through a 65 foot long sluice and the treasures are left in the pan. An identification card is included for children to learn more about their gems or fossils. Mister Happy Gem Mine is located at Sky High, near Holiday Valley’s Tannenbaum Lodge. For more info, check out: https://www.holidayvalley.com/summer/sky-high-adventure-park/

Here's a bit of aerial video at the Emerald Village in Little Switzerland, NC. The village is set up in an old feldspar mine on McKinney Mine Road. It's an interesting tourist destination if you enjoy minerals, and searching for gem stones. Before the Emerald Village was set up, my dad used to find aquamarine and other interesting mineral specimens among the rubble of the old McKinney Mine. My grandfather used to run a steam shovel there back in the 1930's. As a kid, this was one of my favorite places to play - a short bike ride from where I grew up in the Deer Lick Gap. Enjoy the epic DJI Phantom 3 4K video shot by Jamie Hastings.
