In addition to having a wonderful store with very nice owners, The Village Mystic also has one of the most unique and fun activity to do - Gem Mining "Mystic Gems".
Set up in the back yard of the shop is a really neat little water fall that runs and recycles water through a track that is lined with mining trays and shovels. They offer medium and large buckets to purchase and "mine" for gems. We purchased a large for my daughter and she was given a quite large metals pail filled to the top with sane and dirt and she began to dig and rinse. We were astounded at the amount of gems and fossils she found. Large block of amythest, 2 large citrine and many many more including rose quarts, obsidean, citrine, fools gold and much much more including and arrowhead that they wrapped into a necklace for my daughter to wear.
We all had so much fun, watching her discover her treasures. We left with much more than we anticipated!! My daughter has plans to make jewelry with some of her stones and cannot wait to do it again! If you want a unique and different learning activity to do with your children you need to do this!
They also have lots of great items in their shop - Go check it out!
