Make sure you go to this crystal mine and not the "other" one in the same area. Ron Coleman Mine has bathroom facilities right next to the mine, along with a gift shop. The crystals in the tailings that are open for public mining are fantastic! There is no long, drawn-out, steep, gravel road to travel to get to the... More

Collecting was muddy, really sticky and hard to collect. After the tailings dried for a couple of days it was easier to work. We visited here on 4 different occasions during the week. We did find some excellent crystals with water clear clarity despite the muddy conditions. Great time.

My husband and I arrived at the site around 9:30 am and stayed until 3pm. We spent the entire time digging and finding many many quartz crystals. Many were milky and broken but some were not. We found a couple dozen smaller clear points and a few really impressive double terminated and phantom pieces! If you are willing to haul... More

My family came all the way out from Las Vegas and found more treasure at this mine than at any Casino in Vegas.We found the tour was not only fun but very educational. And as a family we all Zipped on the new Zipline which was thrilling and also on some of our bucket lists. Thank you Coleman Mine for... More

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
