Best dig ever!

Judy's is the best place in Arkansas to dig for crystals! The staff is so friendly and the crystals are the clearest I've ever found. I can't wait to make it back there!

Must See!
Jul 2018 • Family
We were referred to Judy's Crystals n Things by Wegner Crystal Mines. Judy is a wonderful woman who loved mining, but she is unable to get up the mountain any longer. She was super nice and cheap. She had some pretty things in her store, but the real treat is about two miles up the road to Fischer's Mountain. My small car had a hard time making it up the mountain, but I was determined. My daughter, she is 8, was finding small crystals right in the middle of the road. She loved it, and I was so glad she got excited about it. I just wish we had more room to take more rocks home. My family had to drag me off the mountain. I was so intrigued by my findings. My son found a spot where there were a lot of clusters, and when we started digging, we found more and more. I just knew I was going to find the momma of all Crystals, but as the daylight faded away, we had to head back towards home, but I will go back, and I will find "that Rock" and I highly recommend everyone visit Judy's treasure box. You get to keep everything you find if you can put it in your vehicle.

Good place to dig.
Apr 2018 • Couples
Although the dirt can be hard, the place has some potential. Have dug here twice, and it takes some doing to find some nice little pieces. I don't think the earth has been moved much, so no new places to dig since I was here 2 years ago. There are lots of small crystals to be found from walking around. Enjoyed going back and seeing that the place is little changed, though could tell LOADS more people have been to the site to dig.

Great place for tiny crystals coated in many minerals! Golden Healers, Iron Oxide, Manganese, and more!
Road to Judy's Mine is not for low riding cars! I bottomed out in my Toyota Corolla!
Pay $15. at Rock Shop and they give you a key. Gate is heavy and hard to lock behind you.
Bought a rock breaking pry bar just my size and specimen rocks.
It was a beautiful day!

Nice find
Jul 2017
Originally we were going to do Crystal Seen Trading co. mining, but the owner stated he was in Florida. We were referred to here. Only $15/person, so not bad. Only found clear quartz crystals. Most of them were just on the surface. Its true that after a good rain it brings the gems to the surface. It rained the day before we went. Owner is a very nice lady and quite chatty (didn't mind at all). I suggest coming here to search for crystals.

Judy's Crystals is a fantastic rock, mineral, and fossil shop
Aug 2017 • Family
Judys is a great shop for the serious rockhound and the casual shopper. Nearly museum-quality quartz specimens and geological treasures from the world over.
We also paid to visit her digsite...the old Stanley Mine on Fisher Mountain. If you are looking for massive crystals in good-sized pockets then this is not the place, but it is famous for smaller and exceptionally clear crystals. No mining required, the soil is littered with single points that have weathered out of the sandstone. Many of the mines around Mt. Ida have heavy iron-staining (which can be removed with Oxalic Acid or Super Iron Out) but most of the points here at Fisher Mountain are clean and glass-clear.

Not sure why/how anyone found Judy helpful. She wasn't and didn't have a mine for us to hunt crystals, just a store. Her store was full of forgien stones, much like the local rock store in Dallas.

Super disappointed and confused after reading reviews from other people.

We have been visiting Judy's for maybe 20 yrs. now. We have never been able to dig our own because of weather or whatever, but the gift shop is fun.

We love Judy's! A great place to mine
May 2017 • Family
This is our 2nd time to mine at Judy's. Our first visit was in March during Spring Break. Judy is very friendly and helpful with anything you need to know. It was a little too hot for us in May.. March was perfect! We loved Fisher Mountain! We mined for 2 days during March and again in May. Her prices are very reasonable. We found some of our best crystals at Judy's!
