My sister, at the age of 67 was determined to zipline. The mine view was gorgeous. The people were just fantastic and so helpful. She loved it! She even got a complementary second trip. I shopped inside. Beautiful things! This review does not have a category that fits us. We are two sisters age 57 and 67. We are surely... More

Definitely plan to get dirty, old shoes or rubber boots.. Jeans are great just make sure you don't mind if they get stained! We found all kinds of crystals out there! It was such an amazing family experience! You get a bag and are shown where to dig and then you just go at it! Large quartz rocks, small quartz... More

This used to be a good place to go if you are a serious rock hound. Not anymore. The admission price is ridiculous it keeps going up. Today we left with less than a pocketful of crystals and nothing to brag about. Nothing new was brought up out of mines for people to look through. It appears to have had... More

Spent 5 hrs, and got a handful of broken rocks, and poor quality samples. Not once in that time did they bring fresh spoil material from the mine, although they spent a lot of time focused on getting people on the zipline, or the mine tour. Sure it's clean and neat at the office , and it's got a pretty... More

We went to mine for crystals with our kids (ages 20, 11, 8 and almost 4). The staff is great, the finds are exciting, and the extra activities are fun (ziplining over the mine, tour on an army truck into the mine and seeing their cleaning process). The view from the digging area is amazing. We will definitely be back... More

This is somewhat of a detailed experience with a fantastic ending. It all started when I was working in South Texas and the family came over from Mississippi for a visit. We went to the flea market in Winnie, TX and my daughter talks with a young teenage lady who explains where they dug all of the crystals displayed for... More

This is our second year for going to the crystal mine and we were not disappointed. We found lots of very nice crystals and clusters. We even found a large flat rock with crystal clusters coming out of it. You can ignore the hot weather if you are finding so many nice crystals. The people are friendly and there is... More

Do not waste your time trying to follow that map- this is the biggest joke around!!! You finally get to the right spot and you can't dig because you don't have the right tools.

We were visiting in Hot Springs and decided to go to Ron Coleman's Crystal Mine for fun. We were with children and grandchildren. It was a Hoot! Lots of Crystals to see; a tour of the mine itself (open pit), their cleaning facilities, crystals from around the world. We worked in the spill pit and picked up some crystals which... More

My family went to the mines for a second time expecting to find the same size rocks, and boy did we. The one thing different from the first time than the second time we went is we started searching in the wrong spot. We went right to the middle where everyone else was and we found other people's bags and... More
