Come and join us at the “Lucky 33” where you keep all the gemstones you find.  Discover an adventure that is fun and exciting for the whole family. No need to take long treks to far off places. No hiking into the back woods with tools and buckets, then lugging out your goodies. No bugs, no snakes, no sunburns, and no tired backs.


At the “Lucky 33”, you can purchase various size pails of our enriched mine dirt. Every pail contains many different specimens of gems, such as emeralds, amethyst, and topaz to name just a few. After purchasing a pail you will have the opportunity to use our screen boxes to wash away the sands in our indoor flume -- a trough with one inch of running water.

Experience the excitement as you discover the rough gemstones that appear on each screen. Then use our assay charts to learn the names and country of origin of each stone.


Once completed you can display your treasures proudly. Have some of your stones cut and polished or perhaps, make some into uncut, natural jewelry. These services and more are available at the “Lucky 33”.


Lapidary services are available on the premises. Rough, Slabs, Exotic Glass, Display Specimens, and Gemstone Jewelry are also available for purchase.
