This was my Wife's and my third visit to the Ron Coleman Mine. We planned to go to one of the Crystal mines in Mount Ida, but we got off to a late start and the Coleman Mine was the closest to drive to. We went there again even though our last two trips gave us little in the way... More

My boyfriend and I just visited Ron Colemans for the 2nd time. The staff treats its customers like family, the facility is well laid out, nice gift shop and the mine is huge. We came home with buckets full of great finds! Quartz is everywhere out there. We look forward to many visits in the future.

Okay, we didn't dig, but we rockhounds were in serious heaven with the rooms and rooms of gorgeous rocks, crystals and minerals, in various states of refinement. We bought big hunks of stones and beautiful little carved polished finished pieces...Reasonable prices. Spectacular view of the open mine, and the dump trucks hauling red clay filled with treasures up to a... More

My first experience at Crystal Mining! My girlfriend and I vote this one of the funniest days we have ever had. Everyone there was so friendly! We can't wait to go back! Wear old clothes and bring your own tools. 5 gallon bucket and wagon!

We found some nice points and some nice small clusters. Not quite as productive as our visit at june but they did not have anything brought up from the... More

Fun time with friends looking for quartz crystals. Discount price for seniors which we really liked. The gift shop had some beautiful items. We ate lunch over looking the mine and the zip line!

This is by far the best crystal mine around. You definitely will find, at least, your entrance fee worth of crystals. They are easy to find as they are not covered with that hard black stuff. Many have very good clarity.

It was way too hot today but still had fun and will go back when temp drops. When you remember to look up the setting is gorgeous. You'll need water, towel to sit on, 3 pronged hand rake, bucket, and a little wagon would be handy. You get a feed sack but buckets would be easier to carry. You can... More
