Our family has been vacationing in North Carolina for years and have been to numerous gem mines. By far, Foggy Mountain Gem Mine is the best!!! We took my two children and a friend to mine there. We bought the Extra large bucket that came with one free cut of a crystal type gem. We could not believe what the kids found! My daughter found three garnets that ranged in size from about a grape to a lemon. My son found a large ruby. We are getting that cut and the estimate is two carats. They found so many other large uncut gems.....too many to name. The staff at Foggy Mountain is very nice and knowledgeable. They explained everything the kids found and answered all of our questions. More importantly, the kids and their granddad had a blast and they will have beautiful souvenirs to remember the trip!
