Rocky Face Mine opened July 4th, 1982, and has been in operation by the same local folks. Our mountainside site is situated on a peaceful, tree-lined meadow along a clear winding creek. We offer "children's size" up to "all-you-can-handle size" buckets. More than 30 varieties of gemstones can be found here - the largest sapphire found here was more than 3,000 carats - the largest ruby was nearly 1,200 carats.
