Gem Mountain Gem Mining Experience in Spruce Pine NC
 
04:55
The Gem Mountain Experience The little town of Spruce Pine, close to the Blue Ridge Parkway is known all over the United States for many of its exports, but one thing still remains is the abundance and hunt for precious gem stones. At Gem Mountain the first thing you must do is pick out the type of bucket and which gem stones you would like to hunt for. This chart here will give you an idea of all that they find here at Gem Mountain and what we do is bring it in from different minesand we sell it you by the bucket. Now Ill explain the buckets to youones on the wall back here are all $20 dollar buckets. They have one kind in themwhatever the sign says is what youll find in that particular bucket. The next one is a $50 dollar mixed bucketthe next is an $80 bucketit has some of all this in itand that we cut one stone for you for free. Now the 125 bucket we cut two stones for free so what you need to do is decide what you want to look through and let us know and well het you set up and going. Then all the action takes place under the covered gem stone flumes where your mission is to discover and identify beautiful and valued gem stones. First just place a scoop of rough material on the screen and use the flume water to sift out the dirt, sand, and rock to reveal precious gem stones. There is even a chart next to you to refer to and help you identify what gemstones to look for. The Gem Mountain experience is fun for all ages whether it be an individual, families having fun together, or groups of all sizes. There are a variety of gem stones waiting to be discovered! Visitors are likely to detect traces of these types of Gem Stones: (List of all of the gem stones along with video) Note: Onscreen these gem stones will be shown for 10each. The rough cut, the cut stone, and jewelry example will be shown together for each gem stone listed below. Citrine Amethyst Topaz Emerald Rutigated Quartz Rose Quartz Aquamarine Smoky Quartz Garnet Sapphire Moonstone Adventurine Ruby Now that you have indentified all your gemstones bring them back into our store where certified gemologists will sort through your treasure collection of gem stones and help you in deciding what pieces could be cut and made into beautiful jewelry that will last a lifetime. Our experienced gem cutters will take your rough stone and shape the gem stone into whatever cut you would like to be placed into a ring, bracelet, or pendant. Once the gemstone has been cut it is then handcrafted and set into the jewelry you have requested. Look around the store there are many beautiful pieces of custom jewelry in our display cases for purchase or to view an example of the type of jewelry you would like to have made for you. We also have many other souvenirs items for purchase inside the store, such as books about gem mining, rock hammers and other tools for mining, mining hats for kids, and much more. All of our work is handmade here at Gem Mountain and is also guaranteed. Its a keepsake pretty much. It has a lot of sentimental value because you found that stone. At the same time you can get that piece of jewelry made about half of what it would actually cost you to go to the jewelry store well about less than half of what it would cost you to go to a jewelry store and buy that piece. We stand behind our jewelry 100%...if something happens to a ring all youve got to do is send it back and well take care of it. No questions asked.

North Carolina Rubies (Propst Farm)
 
04:07
Here's a little short video i made on the Propst Farm in Lincoln county, North Carolina. The Propst farm is know for its corundum. You can also find things like kyanite, quartz, and mica. They say the Propst Farm is an alluvium. An alluvium is a deposit of clay, silt, sand, and gravel left by flowing streams in a river valley or delta.. but what gets me is the structure of these stones. How could it be an alluvium with such defined structure? The stones show no sign of wear. Comment below and let me know what you think! Hope you enjoy! More videos to come! Let me know where you'd like to see next!! Keep digging!
