Rose Creek mine is so worth doing again. My husband, myself, a 10 year old boy and a 5 year old girl had a wonderful time. We picked salted buckets- my son loves rocks and has a polisher at home so he wanted to take home a nice selection. He was thrilled with the rocks. What we all loved was... 更多
We took our three grandchildren, ages 5,6 and 8, and had a great time. The staff was GREAT in showing the kids how to mine the gems. They even identified and labeled the stones. We'll be back next Summer!
Salted buckets and a place to stay! An interesting mountain drive gets you there. It was raining the day we came and prepare for mud. Surprising gift shop. Wouldn't expect the fine quality of jewelry made by locals. The owner is a facetor and very active in the gem community of Franklin, N.C. I got an excellent deal on a... 更多
My husband had visited this mine many years ago and wanted to bring us. He said not much had changed in all that time. We had a great time mining for gems. It was 10 dollars a person (if you dug your buckets) for 2 buckets. That kept us busy for about 2 hours in all. Make sure you dress... 更多
Took my granddaughter. They were so helpful. She came home with lots of minerals and a few gems. Prices are great. Perfect place to have fun and she learned a lot from the wonderful people who run the mine.

Tom even turned us on to a inexpensive lapidary and we ended up getting stones cut into gems cheep! You can... 更多
We stopped in to try some gem mining at rose creek. It was great dirty fun. The teenagers even enjoyed it with no eye rolling. Found a 118 ct ruby in the dig your own dirt They offer several different types of mining for any budget. I recommend having younger children share buckets as it takes some time to sift... 更多
We stopped here so our 9 year old grandson could do some mining. This spot had been recommended by some other businesses in Franklin, so we gave it a try. Even though the buckets are 'salted' we had a great time.
This is the best gem mine you will find in the area. I always take my visiting family and guest here. We have tried others but this one is most accommodating for sure. Tucked back into a community it has a small play ground and relaxed atmosphere with room for kiddos to play and wheel chairs to roll up. There... 更多
