We bought the $35 bucket and split it to mine. We had a great time. We found several gems and I am getting a pair of earrings out of the find. I do agree with a previous review. I will let you know more when I get them in the mail!!!

Gem Mountain was our second stop to mine for gems while in Spruce Pine. The rock bucket was okay with a variety of rocks/gems, but quantity and quality was not as generous as our first stop. The gentlemen outside were very helpful when we had questions about the types of stones. Service inside the store was not great. The man that assisted us in identifying the rock to be cut was less than helpful and lacked a positive customer service attitude. It was an overall good experience, but did not meet the standard of Rio Doce.

We’ve been here 3 times and we keep going back for more! It’s a great place to gem and shop! Gift shop has lots of crystals and jewelry and the gem buckets are full of gems too!

Our family went to Gem Mountain at the end of November 2019 and although the ground was too frozen to do the mining tour bought the Family Mixed bucket and an Aquamarine bucket to sluice and was glad as it was heated while we were going through the buckets because it was cold and the staff were so friendly and took their time going through what we found and I got a blue topaz ring made as well as an ametrine necklace and I was definitely not disappointed as I picked them up when we were ready coming back from our trip to Florida!! I will have to post a picture of them as they were just beautiful and I wear them all the time and they can work with you at any price point. Can't wait to go back again this November!!! LOVE this place and its worth your time to stop by and do some mining!!! Thanks The Mitchell Family from Canada
