Chimney Rock Gemstone Mine Reviews & Ratings

  • So very worth the price! We got the “regular” bucket for our 7 year old who loves rocks and gems and all things earth science. The man working the counter (forgot his name do remember he as from FL) was so friendly and knowledgeable, my 7 year old loved talking to him about his finds and even though he was getting busier nearing lunch time he gave ever customer big and small attention and info needed. This place was definitely kid approved!

  • Rare place that offers a view into their backyard, which is a great flowing River for anyone to access and explore. Scenic route with exploratory inspiration and healthy wonder. Why visit just the shop when you can explore waterfront and kinder the true explorer spirit. Please be safe, as the rocks can be slippery when wet.

  • Had a awesome time and the kids enjoyed it! As someone who finds and collects rocks I enjoyed it just as much as my child. Staff was very knowledgeable and friendly.

  • We got the mega super bucket ($150) for our family of 6, and wow!!!! We were not disappointed! There are so many cool gemstones! I will definitely come back if we visit this area again. Of all the sleuthing we have done, this place had the most gemstones in their buckets. Definitely worth the money! Also, we had a giant geode in our mega bucket, and we got to watch them crack it open. So cool! I have posted pictures of all the large ones we got in our bucket!

  • What a great place to bring kids! Ok, I saw some adults enjoying their finds as much as the kids. The gems my children discovered made the price paid a very good value. My kids have approved this message.
