I loved this! The drive from Philipsburg to the sapphire mine was easy and beautiful. Once at the public mining location we were greeted by friendly staff and instructed how to best find sapphires and other gems in the pay dirt there. I found 33 carats of sapphires and a small piece of tiger eye. After 2 buckets of paydirt, we moved on to the next adventure; touring some nearby ghost towns. Do this if you get a chance. You'll always remember it in a good way.
