SCHOOL GROUPS

We are North Carolina's ONLY education based gem mine backed by the Board of Education. Why go off the mountain and find rocks that were placed there for you from other countries when you can stay local and find gemstones and fossils that formed locally while learning about the unique geological history that created the Appalachian Mountain Range. We offer complete geological programs for students of all ages and grade levels. We will customize lectures designed for each classroom to fit specific science related curriculum programs. Field trips are only $9.00 +Tax per student which includes gem mining, a guided tour through the Appalachian Fossil Museum and a custom lecture that ties it all together. All programs are taught by staff geologists and paleontologists. Group trips must be book at least TWO WEEKS in advance. Call today to schedule: 828-264-4499
