Visited Hendersonville on a Tuesday and discovered that almost everything I wanted to do was closed. Bookstore, toy store, children’s museum...couldn’t even find a park. Walked with my kids to the public restrooms and happened to see the gem mine around the corner. The woman working was WONDERFUL, so informative and engaging with my previously bored and annoyed children. The prices in the shop were very reasonable. Follow this up with a visit to the Mineral and Lapidary Museum and you’ll have a stellar combination.

Cathryn graciously helped me identify my gems and provided exceptional customer service, over and beyond what I dreamed or imagined when I walked into the store.

If you want a memorable experience identifying, mining for, or shopping for gems, this is a must-stop-shop when in Downtown Hendersonville.

However, it’s worth the trip as a destination!

We really enjoyed our first mining experience! My kids (7&9) enjoyed the sleuse and found many large rocks. The site was beautiful with a gorgeous mountain stream on the rear of the property and picnic tables just up the hill. We enjoyed the stream just as much as the mining! The gift shop has numerous geodes on display and reasonably priced. There was also a good selection of jewelry and Christian literature and gifts. I highly recommend this experience for your family.

My wife and I stopped in the store in town and decided to sluice a "Special" bucket. We were amazed at the size of several of the treasures found and the variety! We decided to sluice a second bucket and were not disappointed. We have sluiced buckets in other locations, but felt we got more bang for our buck at Pisgah. Jorie was a delight to work with, and her enthusiasm was infectious.

Decided to “mine for gems” thinking it was a total “tourist trap waste of money” but looking for something to do in the evening hours (many stores in the area close at 5:00). However we (two parents and two 18 year olds) had so much fun!!! Reagan and Jorge (store employees) made the experience extra enjoyable. They were very knowledgeable and were constantly there to help us identify what we were finding. Made fun memories with two teens … which can be a challenge!!! Would think little ones would really like it too.

Stopped here while visiting and shopping in downtown Hendersonville. This was a very cool store, they have mining for gems inside store. There are also t-shirts and other trinkets available as well. The staff was also very friendly and helpful. Definitely worth a visit.

My kids LOVED this place. We bought the mining buckets and they got to go through them searching for the various rocks. I loved that they also provided a card that showed the picture and names of the rocks so that the kids could identify what they found. I can't say enough good things about how kind and kid-friendly the employees were at this place. They also have a large store section with lots of affordable gifts. Highly recommend this place!!!
