Camp For Free And Dig Your Own Crystals And Gemstones At A Mine Near Atlanta

Spread the word

It is a well-known fact that North America is known for its public mines. Many crystal and gemstone enthusiasts often embark on a long excavation journey to uncover some beautiful stones.

Are you a lover of crystals and gemstones, and camping is your thing, then this place is for you. Stay overnight for free and dig for your very own crystals and gems.

Diamond Hill Mine in Abbeville has six acres of land open to the public. It is about two and a half-hour drive from Atlanta and is one of South Carolina’s primary crystal mines.

So if you are planning a trip or just passing through, add some extra time to your trip to stop over for some mining adventure. You could be taking some gorgeous stones home. It is open 365 days a year.

An erosion took place in the southern part of the Appalachian Mountains over millions of years, exposing an area that contains the widest variety of epidote, garnet, smoky quartz, amethyst, to name a few.

Some of the crystals and gem that you might find are Epidote, Garnet, Smoky quartz, Manganese Oxide coated, Amethyst, to name a few. What you dig up on this mine was not added. All the gems and stones are natural to the pit.

There is a fee to dig up your gems and crystals, and whatever you find is yours to keep. The only things suggested that you should do, is bring your own supplies of water, food and your tools that you require to dig like a rock hammer, a sledgehammer, a pick, long screwdriver, shovel, a rake and a good set of durable gloves as well as containers for your treasures.

In the US, there are many spots for gem hunting. Here is a list of a few, yet I am not sure what their fees or if you are allowed to camp there.

  •  Denio, Nevada.
  •  Virgin Valley, Nevada.
  •  Hiddenite, North Carolina.
  •  Franklin, North Carolina.
  •  Spruce Pine, North Carolina.
  •  Murfreesboro, Arkansas.
  •  Philipsburg, Montana.
  •  Amelia, Virginia.
