Chippy’s Gemstone Mining

Gemstone mining is an educational, fun and easy way to search for natural gemstones the old fashioned way. The water flows from a water tower through various drops and turns into a wooden sluiceway. On the bottom portion of the sluice, people sift through the gemstone mining rough using a panning tray to discover various gemstones. Gemstone Miners will discover up to 25 individual gemstones including Pyrite, Rubies, Sapphires, Quartz and Amethyst. Once you have washed away the mining rough, keep the gemstones as keepsakes or decorations or make jewelry with them.
