My husband and daughter are avid rock hounds. We had previously visited the Herkimer Diamond Mines which is a next door neighbor to the Ace of Diamonds Mine, and decided to check out the competition on this trip. We were not disappointed. On the day in mid May when we arrived, there were few other hounds, and the pickings were... More

Had a great experience here! Very friendly helpers, but this is HARD work. It took my kids and I about half a day to get the hang of it, but then we found some gorgeous pieces. Stopped at the other mine and was not impressed with the commercialism of it! This mine is for the more serious rock hound! There... More

Just returned from a day at the mine. It was excellent from the time we walked into the office to pay for our time until we left. We found several beautiful Herkimer Diamonds. It was such fun and such a big area to hunt for specimens. Others that were mining were very friendly and very helpful. Will definitely go back... More

The Ace of Diamonds mine was everything we expected. It was not easy breaking the ruble to find the crystals but it was fun. It took a little bit of time to find the right rocks to break, but once we did we were not disappointed. For our first time mining, I think we did well. We will definitely be... More

If you are willing to go out with a 3 pound hammer and rock chisel this is the place for you. We were there about 2 hours and got 5 stones. 4 good size ones and a small one plus some pieces of rock with small stones in them that we can display. The stones are called Herkimer diamonds and... More

We fell in love with ACE OF DIAMONDS! honestly we were not feeling the Herkimer Mine at the KOA where we stayed. The cabin was great--But we were not feeling it ---UNTIL, the second day when we went to ACE OF DIAMONDS. Totally different atmosphere, and you can FEEL IT. The staff there is wonderful and the owner nicknamed Mr... More

We spent about five or six hours at the mine. We ( hubby and I) brought a small sledge hammer, chisels, claw hammer, eye protection and gloves. At first all we could find were pieces, and the pile of rocks seemed like it was not going to yield anything, but one we got the hang of breaking the rocks, we... More

What a great choice for a weekend road trip. We used a discount website to get a hotel and off we went. We arrived to the mine before the crowds so had our pick of places to stake out. It seems pretty big at first but when the folks start coming in it gets crowded fast. The owners are very... More

We had a great time at the Ace of Diamonds mine. Breaking open the rocks is hard work, the men with me enjoyed it, but it was too much for me (a small woman without much muscle). We stayed at a hotel in Utica. The camp facilities at Ace of Diamonds were very basic. The bathroom was small and clean.... More
