Second time there and they have added a lot more things to do. We dug for crystals and didn't come home disappointed. Beautiful specimens to take home and show off.

I havent been back to this mine since 2010, it had rained that day and I had taken several family members with me, but it seems that the people at the rock shop there were more concerned about their brand new asphalt parking lot getting muddy from vehicles coming from the parking area, so they banned everyone from parking near...

Sorry about your disappointment of having to park on the top level due to the rain. A quarter mile is a vast exaggeration of the distance from the normal parking area by the tailings to the asphalt one. I can assure you the parking lots is not new, it's been there since the early 90's, the reason for having customers... More

Hubby is a geologist and has been out a couple of times before, several years ago. It was a lot better outcome back than, then this time.. A couple that was digging at... More

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

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
