Amethyst Mine Panorama is the largest deposit in Canada. It was discovered in 1955 as a result of a road being built to the forest fire lookout tower (McTavish Tower) visible from the mine sight. Amethyst production started in 1960 and the mine has produced continuously since then.

The mine produces 40% usable amethyst by volume. A large digging area, open to the public, contains 20% usable amethyst and is the main source of "pick your own” amethysts. Open from May 15 to October 15.
