World Famous Phantom Mine
Advance reservations and deposits are required at this site!
Trips leave Monday – Friday at 9:30 a.m.
Weekend Groups by appointment and availability.
This is our most popular and productive mine. The Phantom Mine areas offer our visitors a unique opportunity to dig Clear and Phantom Quartz Crystal Points and Specimen Grade Clusters. Our Phantoms, have Manganese Inclusions that look like a smaller dark crystal trapped within a larger clear crystal. They are both rare and are highly prized by collectors. We are happy that we can provide this exclusive opportunity to our visitors as there are very few mines in the world that produce this type of Phantom Crystal.
The fee is $40.00 per person for 4 hours on site digging
and includes tools, buckets, transportation, and a guide that stays with you for safety and to help you make the most of your dig experience. There are no hidden fees, and you keep all you find! This is not a private dig. Once we have enough reservations we will take a group. 10 person minimum per trip.
