One of our team members assists you or your group in digging your own pocket at one of our mines. This is a once in a lifetime experience that is not offered at any other mines that have produced world class specimens. Pieces from our mines are in The Smithsonian, Crystal Bridges Museum of Natural History, and many other prominent museums. We also offer private digs at our Mona Lisa Turquoise Mine near Mena, Arkansas. Pocket digs starting at $1000. Email us for more information.
