What Should I Bring?

Tools are not necessary for amethyst searching.  Amethyst is easily found with very little effort.  We provide all you need to have a successful amethyst adventure.  Pails, digging tool and running water are available to assist you in your search.  We do not allow the use of hammers.  Hammers are dangerous for the user as well as spectators.

Amethyst does not occur ‘inside’ the stone, so there is no need to attempt to ‘crack’ or break them open.  If you need a smaller piece of amethyst, look for one, they are all over.

What Should I Wear?

Digging for amethyst can be messy.  If the dirt in the search area is wet, it can be muddy, plus stones (and amethyst) of all sizes litter the digging area.  We recommend that you wear closed-toe shoes or runners and watch you step.

What do I pay for amethyst from the digging area?

Dig-your-own amethyst is priced at just $5.00 per pound (plus tax).
