Fun time with the family.
Jun 2021 • Family
Had an excellent time mining with the family. We found some interesting stones and was lucky enough to get two geodes stuck together. Liz and Allison were very helpful and knowledgeable and made our visit fun and educational. Would definitely do it again.

Worth the hype!
Jun 2021
We had a family vacation a couple of weeks ago and the whole experience at Crystal Mountain was phenomenal. Our 8 year old loved it as well as our teenager.

So much fun, some education and lots to look at and explore. (and cool stuff to buy)

The "mining for gems" experience was so much fun and for a very reasonable amount of money.

Perhaps most noteworthy was the customer service and friendliness of Holden and Liz. You just don't see this kind of love and ownership of employees too often. Was super thankful for how they treated our family and loved how they wanted us to have a great experience.

Visited today, June 12, 2021. Got the precious stone "bucket". Manager Holden and the other worker whose me I can't remember we're awesome. They're super helpful and friendly. We got lots of precious and semi precious gemstones and lots of fun. We're even having one of the saphires cut into a cab which they'll mail to us. Great shop, great people, great fun.

A GREAT WAY TO SPEND A FEW HOURS
May 2021 • Friends
A great way to spend a few hours. All of the employees are great, especially Holden the manager, there all willing to explain and identify the gems that you found. Great for kids and dog friendly. Also, purchasing crystals there are super affordable. I loved it so much i went two weekends in a row.

Best experience!
May 2021 • Family
I’m not the person who leaves reviews, but this Grm mining experience (and the associated store) have truly impressed me! Holden was amazing and all the staff so caring and helpful. My three boys (ages 4, 6, and 9) had so much fun! The store has so many amazing cool things! Definitely best gem mining experience we’ve had so far! (It’s our third or fourth). Thanks, amazing staff! Oh, and for those not familiar with the area- so much else to do and eat in this quaint street! We will be back!

Awesome Experience
May 2021 • Friends
We were only in town for the day and wound up spending most of our time in the shop. We got the Big Green Bucket x2 and found more gems than anywhere I've ever been....and that's saying a lot. I have visited most of the shops of North Georgia, Southern NC and Western SC. This place has such a cool atmosphere. Holden was a huge help! He was knowledgeable and super friendly. It's probably a good thing we don't live in this state or we would be in this shop ALL the time! Holden also did a great job helping us select great geodes! We will be back!

We have been here twice and our kids love this place! We did the green bucket and found a geode and other really neat rocks. We will be back again soon. Also Liz was very friendly and helpful answering all questions we had and our kids had.

Awesome experience
Apr 2021 • Couples
Went to crystal mountain gem mine on 4/28/2021. Holden and Quentin were working that day. They are so personable. We did mining that day. How fun. They were so helpful to us in identifying stones we had questions about. They made the whole experience so fun. We winded up spending more at the store than expected. After we got home looking at our treasures, went back on 4/29/2021 and spoke with Hanna. She identified every rock we had in bags. When we come back to Brevard, we will certainly go back. Recommend Crystal Mountain Gem Mining for children as well as adults
