Buckets of sand and, one hopes gems, from around the world are available for purchase at this pleasant roadside sluice. There are different sizes of buckets available as well as different themed buckets. After you purchase a bucket or two, you just take the bucket to the sluice and shovel a few scoops of sand into the strainer. The water from the sluice will wash away the sand and reveal your precious stones.
Anyone hoping to strike it rich here may be disappointed. This is purely for fun and education. Kids love it; water, a bucket of sand, and hidden treasure is a winning combination. The staff is very pleasant and knowledgeable, and they are more than willing to check over your haul of treasure to help identify what you found. This was a great morning as the crowd was small and the weather perfect.More
