“Nice Place for Sapphires & Garnets”
Review of Gem Valley Montana - CLOSED

Gem Valley Montana
Reviewed August 14, 2013

We did a bag of Sapphires & a bag of Garnets. It was fun and we found quite a few of both gems. We were very pleased that we went out of our way to get there.

We had heard of Gem Valley from a very reputable sapphire mine owner, so we decided to check this place out. We went there to meet with the owner Drew and to have some gems graded and faceted. Not only was Drew very personable but he also taught us some more about gem hunting and what to look for. His little shop also had gravel for people to purchase to mine for gems and he also offers heat treating,faceting, & setting of gems. We decided to have some gems cut, so he explained to us the steps that he uses to cut gems and so forth. He was and is very reasonably priced. We left and came back a few weeks later to pick up our "prizes". We were pleasantly surprised at how beautiful they came out. Not only is his work excellent, but he is very trustworthy and that is important for people who want to have gems cut. The facility was very cute, clean, and set up for "miners" of all ages to pan for hidden treasure! We definately recommend this place to anyone who is interested in mining and having your treasures faceted and etc..... This is such a charming little shop and a pleasure to see all the interesting items in his store. We later took our gems to a jeweler and he commented on the excellent workmanship of these stones. YEAH!!!!!!!!
