Fee Dig Sites in the USA where you can find your own gems, crystals & minerals
There are a number of mines and screening sites in the USA where you can find your own gems, minerals, and crystals. I have been updating our webpage with the current fee dig sites including a list of minerals, gems and crystals found at each location, with links to the websites of each dig, and for some I will be including videos of the dig sites and reviews that have been made. You can find Tourmaline, Kunzite, Morganite, and Benitoite in California; Opals and Turquoise in Nevada; Thundereggs and Sunstones in Oregon; Sapphire in Montana; Emerald in North Carolina; Diamonds and Quartz Crystals in Arkansas; Topaz, Amazonite and Smoky Quartz in Colorado; Opals and Garnets in Idaho; and many, many more. Check out our fee dig page by CLICKING HERE. Each site has different owners and methods. I have tried limiting the list to those sites that have only natural, native gems and crystals found at the site or region, not the salted "tourist traps" that do exist (these are still good for kids) but, for the serious prospector or collector, most want to find something that is natural and native to the area or mine they are going to. If you know of additional sites, feel free to CONTACT US with the information and I will try to get it listed. Anyhow, I hope that the information is helpful and happy prospecting to those that can make it out and dig some gems!
