Wonderful experience. Woman who was working was fantastic and so patient and friendly. She gave my kids lots of attention and told them information about all the rocks they were Finding. She went out of her way to provide an educational and fun experience! The place was clean and well organized and run.

Amazing with kids!

Highly recommend!

I was so impressed with our finds. We go gem mining a lot (usually outdoors) but were near downtown and wanted to try something new. My daughter LOVED her experience. Hands down what made it the best was the staff. Both staff members were amazing with her. One was Sydney and the other was great too. They smiled, were patient, answered her questions and were genuinely patient and happy when she found special gems. Fantastic selection!

Only downfall was no AC so it was pretty hot inside. A man also chose to smoke outside (not their fault) and it was blowing into the shop.

A Learning Experience
May 2021
I truly enjoyed my first experience in a Gem Store. Syd and Sam made me feel like it is important to be educated about the forces on hand with the different types of gems. I look forward to traveling there again!

Sam and Sydney were so helpful with our gem mining experience!! Our kids have never mined before & they both checked up on us frequently, making sure we were comfortable knowing our crystals! Best crystal shop downtown not to mention the prices of the actual shop are a steal!!

Sam is literally the best ever. She was so helpful and knew every crystal I mined. She even helped me sort them all out so I wouldn’t forget. The store is so beautiful and everything is nice and organized. Also the prices are amazing, most crystal store tend to over charge for things but here all the prices were really fair.

Fun for all ages
Apr 2021
Wife and I visit Asheville often. She's big into gem stones so I thought it would be a fun experience for her. Little did I know I had a ton of fun too. The staff Sage and Sarah were very friendly and really enjoyed sharing their knowledge on the different types of stones. We will visit again for sure.
